Where to stay in Sydney
Sydney’s CBD is best for men and women who want to be in the heart of the city but don’t mind the crowds of suits during rush hour.

The Sydney CBD is likely to be exclusively for business travellers and is within walking distance of a variety of landmarks such as the Opera House, Pitt Street Mall and The Rocks.

You’ll find many beautiful and luxurious hotels in the CBD. Click here to see some of Sydney’s amazing 5 star luxury hotels.

The Rocks is perfect for those who want to be close to the harbour and have a picturesque view of Sydney Harbour, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. You will be very close to all of Sydney’s major city attractions.

Grand Central Station is best for those looking for travel convenience.

As the name suggests, Central Station is pretty much the hub of Sydney’s transportation, with all train lines passing through it, making it easy to get to and from the city and beyond.

You’ll find accommodation options in the area ranging from backpacker hostels to mid-range hotels. Click here to see popular hotels in the Circular Quay area.

Newtown is one of Sydney’s liveliest areas, with boutique stores, a wide variety of restaurants and craft breweries.

If you’re looking for a suburb with a fun and colorful cast of characters, no shortage of dining venues and noisy streets, Newtown is the place for you.

How to get around Sydney
The best way to get around Sydney is by public transport system.

Sydney is easily connected by train lines and bus routes, so you’ll find it much easier to get around by public transport than by renting a car.

In addition, renting a car in Sydney is relatively expensive, and timed parking in tourist areas such as Bondi Beach and Circular Quay is expensive and limited.

If you plan to go anywhere by public transport, I recommend using Transport NSW’s Trip Planner.
