Your guide to Sydney

All About Sydney

Known worldwide for its pristine beaches and lively harbour, Sydney is a top destination for travelers from around the world. Its wildlife, architecture, and climate are among the many well-known reasons to visit, but the city is also home to renowned coffee roasters, a burgeoning food scene, quirky pubs, and an effervescent nightlife. Art and culture are also vital to Sydney’s soul with its many museums and theatres, as well as the iconic Sydney Opera House.

Locals and visitors alike flock to Darling Harbour to shop, dine by the wharf, or stroll along the water’s edge. When it comes to waterside walks, Sydney is a great place to explore paths and trails with stunning panoramic views of the skyline. It is also a great area for swimming, and just outside the city core are a number of options for soaking up the sun.


How do I get around Sydney?

Sydney Airport (SYD) is the major hub for international flights and has easy options for getting into the city centre. It is about a 20-minute drive by car, or there is a regular train into the central station that leaves every 15 minutes. While in town, there are a number of ways to get around. The core and surrounding areas are serviced by the Sydney Metro, Inner West Light Rail, and CBD and South East Light Rail. Sydney Ferries is the public transport option for navigating the harbour area, and is a great way to get around while also providing views of the city from the water. For those wishing to explore on their own terms, the city also offers bike share programs.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Sydney?

Given the city’s sub-tropical climate, there’s no bad time to book a vacation rental. While winters are not hot, they can range from temperate to cool, which makes this season the best time to get out and explore coastal trails or hike in the Blue Mountains, just an hour’s drive from the city. In the hot spring and summer months, it is best to limit strenuous activities during the peak hours of sunshine and find a shaded patio, hip cafe, or a spot on the beach to cool down. Sydney comes alive in summer, when its many lush walks, parks, and botanical gardens offer a respite from the heat. Although it tends to be rainier in the summer, there is much more sunshine on average, which ensures a lot of clear skies on any visit throughout the year.


What are the top things to do in Sydney?

Royal Botanical Gardens

The iconic Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge are musts for any visitor, but there are a number of ways to see and experience them. The Royal Botanical Gardens offer a different approach with panoramic views from a relaxed, open atmosphere that visitors can explore at their leisure. You’ll find lots of paths to explore, lawns to picnic on, and quiet places to sit and watch the ferries.

Oceanside Bondi Icebergs Pool

Bondi Beach is one of the area’s most picturesque and visited places to swim — and swimming in the Olympic-size pool built into the rocky coast is on many visitors’ bucket lists. Whether you want to do laps or just lounge, it’s a pretty magical experience to watch the waves crash against the shore and spill into the turquoise lanes of this pool.

Cockatoo Island

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a window into Sydney’s past. The island was the site of a penal establishment as well as the country’s largest shipyard and ship-building site for over 130 years. It is also a unique place to visit to get great views of the city. For an interactive experience, follow the teal “Hello” signs.
