  • Great park in the city, the only downside is it completely open so not always good for kids if it is really hot or windy
  • Very pretty place, lots of places to sit down and enjoy the everyday rush, plus you can find many cafes all around the park. Not gonna lie, I come here almost everyday :)
  • Nice park in the city. Staging for events and located conveniently for tourists staying in the area.
  • Beautiful senery with city view and large park. it's comfortable both daytime and nigit. People are laying down with just relaxing and having coffee, sleeping and chatting. Grass is tidy and sunny day is awesome.
  • Excellent for the whole family, surrounded by restaurants and amenities, walkways and toilet are well designed.

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.
