    This Park is located between the Convention Centre and the city centre. Great Meadows invite to play or picnicking, or placing easily in the Sun. Nearby, there are several restaurants, where you can be self-sufficient. At the moment (mid-2017) the construction noise of the directly adjacent construction site, something disturbs the tranquility.

    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 :)

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.
