There’s no doubt that Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and attracts visitors from all across the globe, including fellow Aussies. It boasts various places to see, from the Sydney Opera House and its neighbouring Sydney Harbour Bridge, to the Royal Botanic Gardens and Bondi Beach.
Depending on what your ideal trip or holiday is, Sydney has something for everyone. Are you looking for a day out at the beach? Or looking to take in some history and culture? Whatever it is you’re looking to do, here is a guide on where to stay in Sydney to make sure you get the most out of this vast city.
1) Darling Harbour
If you’re looking to see the typical tourist attractions of Sydney like the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Royal Botanic Gardens, then staying at Darling Harbour is highly recommended. Darling Harbour is a quiet place to stay which is great if you’re just looking to visit the main attractions during the day, then relax in the evening. However, if you want to stay in the hustle and bustle of Sydney city life, then Sydney Central Business District is a great alternative.
2) The Rocks
If your Sydney trip is more about the history of the city and to awe in it’s beautiful architecture, then The Rocks is a great place to stay to take advantage of that. With cobble stoned streets and buskers to entertain you, The Rocks also boasts gourmet street food and open-air Rocks Markets. It’s a place to stay if you’re looking for culture yet it’s only a stones throw away from the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Bondi Beach is certainly one of the most iconic beaches in Australia, and it’s definitely a place to stay if you’re looking for a beach getaway. Surfers flock to the beach to take advantage of the waves, whilst walkers and joggers bask in the beautiful scenery of the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk. Bondi Beach is surrounded by cafes and pubs that you’d have all you need to enjoy your stay.
There are plenty of other places to stay in Sydney including Chippendale, Darlinghurst, Manly, Newtown and Palm Beach, and each place boasts different things. That’s the great thing about this large city: depending on what you want to do, you can guarantee there’ll be something in Sydney that’s right for you. We recommend staying at Fraser Suites in Sydney for a lovely stay.
