Sydney travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about Sydney

Cheap flights to Sydney

To unlock the most reasonable rates, try avoiding peak travel season for Sydney, which is between December and the start of March. Off-season flights, such as those booked from June to the end of August offer not only cheaper flights but cheap hotels in Sydney too.

How to get around Sydney

Exploring Sydney is easy, especially if you use the Hop-On Hop-Off bus in the city. The service takes you to main attractions in multiple districts, and you can get on and off as often as you want. The City Circle walking path takes you through the main attractions and is the easiest way to explore the CBD without having to deal with traffic. Buses and ferries are your best travel option for getting to the beaches and visiting key attractions around the harbour. You can use the OPAL card for all day travel on trains, buses, ferries and light rail and pay no more than $15 AUD per day for adults and $7.50 AUD per day for children. Purchase one at the airport or a local customer service centre in the CBD.

Exploring Sydney without spending too much

You can see the city conveniently without spending much money. Take advantage of free tours, including the volunteer tour guides from Sydney Greeters. Most city museums have free visiting hours, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Maritime Museum, Art Gallery of New South Wales, and Queen Victoria Building. Beaches are free to visit and accessible on foot, by ferry, and public transit. The Olympic Pool in North Sydney charges $7.80 AUD and lets you stay poolside for the day with views of the harbour. Depending on the time of the year, you can find free events to attend. January offers the Sydney Festival, while March – June offers the Biennale of Sydney. Mardi Gras is in March, and the New Year’s Eve fireworks are spectacular.
