The spot where Captain Cook landed in 1770, Sydney is the oldest city in Australia. And it’s an oldie but a goodie! Officially declared a city in 1842, Sydney now boasts the biggest population in the country.
Things to do
Want to party ‘til the sun comes up? Kings Cross is the place to do it. The nightlife really goes off here, and it just might be the most hectic part of town in the early hours of the weekend.
Woolloomooloo, just next door, also has some lovely and stylish bars by the water, as well as some great arts attractions.
Likewise, Paddington is a great spot for art, wine and food, and intriguing fashion boutiques.
But of course, a trip to Sydney isn’t complete without a trip to Bondi Beach! The shimmering white sands and clear blue waters are ridiculously popular with both tourists and locals. It’s a pretty amazing sight – and just 30 minutes from the CBD. Be sure to walk the seaside track from Bondi to Coogee for amazing views. Coogee Beach is fab too – but is slightly lower key than Bondi. On the north side of Sydney, Manly is also a super popular beach spot, lined by palms. With a lovely chilled vibe, you’ll also find plenty of seaside dining and drinking spots to kick back in after those long strolls on the beach.
Shopping and dining
If you’re picturing a Sydney shopping trip, then book into one of our Sydney CBD Hotels. There are fashion stores and boutiques dotted all over the city centre, and you’ll love the drop-dead gorgeous shop-lined interior of the late-19th century Queen Victoria Building. The CBD also has stacks of restaurants and the rest of the city sights are right on your doorstep!
Just next door in Surry Hills, you’ll find more shopping – lots of boutiques, vintage and antique shops. It’s also a nightlife and dining hotspot. If markets are your kind of thing, you’ll find lots of them around Sydney, but the markets at The Rocks are an absolute must. Set along historic cobblestone streets, its unique charm is just up the road from all the skyscrapers and right next to Circular Quay, the transport hub of the city.
From Darling Harbour to Chatswood and Sydney Airport accommodation, we have hotels all over the city! Whether you want to sleep surrounded by history, nature, shops, iconic sights or food (mmmmm!), we’ve got your back.
So get your travel buddies together and grab your hotel and flights in one handy Sydney package to live every lastminute in Sydney.
