Sydney Harbour National Park, Sydney

4.8
#4 of 13 in Nature in Sydney
Visit tranquil islands and sheltered beaches, and get a grip on the rich pre- and post-colonial history of New South Wales at Sydney Harbour National Park. You can learn about Sydney’s past on a guided tour, getting a taste of rich Indigenous, colonial, and military heritage, as well as enjoying the natural aquatic reserves and archipelagos. The park itself offers excellent swimming spots, hiking trails, and rest areas, with the cultural intrigue of seeing Indigenous reburial sites where ancestral remains have been returned. Observe native wildlife as you gaze out over the ocean--if here in winter, you might even see whales on their annual migration. Our Sydney vacation trip planner makes visiting Sydney Harbour National Park and other Sydney attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

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.
