  • We were disappointed with the gardens. Whilst it maybe a nice place to sit and be tranquil to actually go specifically to visit it is a waste of time. Parking was difficult and we spent about 10 minut...  more »

  • An old factory like place with lots of photographers' exhibitions. Good for a afternoon walk and also got chairs on the roof top
  • A little hidden secret in Sydney. Went during the early evening when the night was lingering however would probably look the best in broad daylight! A really beautiful secret garden.
  • Quirky inner city location. Great for photographers. Surprisingly quiet considering located next to a busy street.
  • Nice area for reading in the sun - surprisingly quiet given proximity to Oxford St. A sign on the wall indicated free wifi too, didn't test it though...
  • A lovely place to catch you're breath away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

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.
