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.

  • A good walk. Dogs are allowed on leash, but we noticed other dog owners had found a quite corner to allow their dogs offleash. Overall it seems pretty dog friendly.
  • Great park, really interesting redesign and loved the way they incorporated the site's history into the landscape design. Great 180° views of the harbour and bridge, good spot for picnic for adults or kids that don't need a playground, great for dogs, though need to keep them on leash at all times.
  • good toilets here nearly open 24hrs plus have good free b.b.q up on the hill on very historic location..very interesting area ...good park near the sea
  • Great views and picturesque semi-industrial feel, access may be difficult for elderly/young children.
  • Such a huge place with plenty to do. A great location with brilliant harbour/city views. Perfect for BBQs or just a lazy weekend stroll. Kids can run around for hours following the paths to different parts of the park which all seem to have a different theme to each section. Would be amazing to see in the new year at this spot but I'm sure it'll be popular
