  • Circular Quay

    Circular Quay is the home of Sydney's most famous attractions. The Sydney Opera House and Royal Botanic Gardens are just a stone's throw from each other, while ferries and buses run constantly to Manly and the north shore of the harbour. The western side of the quay is where you'll find The Rocks with its charming cobbled laneways and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

  • Surry Hills and Darlinghurst

    Surry Hills has a reputation as one of the most plentiful suburbs for drinking and dining. If nightlife is what you're after, Oxford Street is where you'll want to be. Running along the border of both Surry Hills and Darlinghurst, Oxford Street is your connection from the city all the way to Bondi Junction. If you're looking to soak up the atmosphere of Sydney fashion, food and nightlife, this area is tailor-made for you.

  • Bondi Beach

    Home to white sands, rolling waves and the occasional famous face, Bondi Beach is the epitome of Australian surf culture. A morning swim, an afternoon drink, or an evening of fine-dining – Bondi is beautiful any time of day. Weekend farmers' markets and a coffee in the shade is a great way to relax, so if a laidback atmosphere is what you're after, Bondi Beach is your best bet.

  • North Sydney

    With the city just across the water and easy access via ferry, or a quick walk over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, North Sydney offers convenience away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. A quieter green metropolis, North Sydney is home to the beautiful mansions of Kirribilli and the splendid escapism of Wendy Whiteley's Secret Garden located in the wonderful Lavender Bay.

  • Chinatown and Darling Harbour

    Discover the finest in Asian cuisine and culture, waterfront dining, wine and cocktail bars, and entertainment. Chinatown and Darling Harbour are at the heart of Sydney's buzzing life after dark. The lively precinct is only a 10-minute walk from the city centre, and it's also easily accessible via the light-rail network. Darling Harbour is one of the best places to stay in Sydney.
