A Sydney classic for a reason.
Tucked between the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay will likely be one of your first stops in town. One of Sydney’s main transport hubs, this is also your departure point for cruises around Sydney Harbour. It’s also a great area for outdoor dining and leisurely strolls, with the best views of the bridge and opera house.
Cute and historic, don't skip this neighborhood.
This small historic area is packed with colonial stone buildings, intriguing alleyways, hidden courtyards, boutiques, pubs, and restaurants, which are best explored on a guided walking tour that dives into the area’s rich history. On the weekend, visit the Rocks Market for souvenirs and crafts.
An LGBTQ hub.
The perfect place for an entertaining day out.
Glitzy, tourist-oriented Darling Harbour is home to Sydney’s main convention, exhibition, and entertainment centers, as well as a waterfront promenade, the Sydney Aquarium, an IMAX theater, the Australian Maritime Museum, the Powerhouse Museum, and lots of shops. It’s also a departure point for harbor cruises.
Soak up the sun on one of the world's most famous beaches.
No visit to Sydney is complete without soaking up some sun on Bondi Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world. It’s just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the city center and boasts warm waters and consistently nice waves. Surf, work on your tan, sip cocktails beachside, or take a hike over the surrounding cliffs.
The journey is as good as the destination in this neighborhood.
