  • Great place to walk around in Sydney. A whole bunch of restaurants and cafes, and some bars are around. There's an Ampitheatre where some events are held. One scene from 'The Matrix' was shot in front of the fountain. Christmas tree is set up during the Christmas period.

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.
