    One of the best places to watch and enjoy the peaceful activities on the Parramatta River. The point looks directly at Cockatoo Island and some aspects of the Drummoyne waterfront.  more »

    A beautiful and unusual park perfect for picnics and watching the boats pass. Not good on a windy day and not great for little kids and lots of cliffs.

    Having a young child, finding parks with good playgrounds is a must. Elkington Park is pretty, has good views and a better than average playground.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
