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.

  • Fantastic museum complex. If you like museums give yourself three or four hours and go early in the day so you can catch the vessel tours and theatre showings in between walking around. Big Ticket entry seems but there is a lotto see and the stomp is good for the day. Endeavor has several local staff above and below deck to share the history. Has a coffee stand in front and restaurant in back, and a nice deck to relax on. Food court and other restaurants on other side of the bridge at the mall. Loved this museum!
  • Great displays, interactive with knowledgeable volunteers to answer your questions & show you around. Reasonably priced when you consider all the attractions a $32 pass gets you including access to the ships, submarine & the museum etc. If you want to see it all though, allow plenty of time, probably a whole day. Well worth it though if you're keen on your Maritime history :)
  • Lots to see in this museum. I really enjoy boarding and looking at the insides of the ship. The access to the ships are worth it, so please do buy the extra tickets. I had only the afternoon, but this could easily be a whole day event.
  • Walking around the ships and the submarine is definitely the highlight for me. The voluntary guides are excellent. The exhibits in the Museum are interesting but need a lot of time to really get the benefit. Plan to spend a full day!
  • Worth visiting there. One of the best place to get aware of the history of this which is closely linked with maritime history. Kids friendly and great place for all.
