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.

Where to stay in Sydney

Best places to stay in Sydney

Sydney, home to sunny beaches and year-round attractions, offers an array of hotel accommodations. When looking for hotels in Sydney, consider the neighbourhood that suits your needs as a tourist, student or business traveller. Sydney’s metropolitan area consists of 8 macro sites, including:

Sydney CBD

This is the perfect location for business travellers, with easy access to transportation and local attractions. The CBD is home to 5 star accommodations as well as budget-friendly hotels. If you stay on Market Street, you will be in the centre of the CBD, and here you have hotels like QT Sydney and Swissotel. If you head to Pitt Street, you have a variety of hotels across a range of prices. On Pitt Street, you are within walking distance to the Pitt Street Mall and Darling Harbour. Hotels off Pitt Street include Primus Hotel and The Tank Stream.

Darling Harbour

Enjoy the waterfront with picturesque views and great local restaurants. You will be within walking distance to the CBD. For a view of the water from your room, stay at ibis Sydney, which is right on the water. Ovolo 1888 is also a central location; you can walk to the beach and local attractions, and avoid driving. ParkRoyal is a modern, luxury hotel with friendly staff and a gourmet breakfast every morning.

Darlinghurst

Just outside the CBD, you find Darlinghurst, perfect for those seeking Sydney nightlife and local breweries. In Darlinghurst, stay at the Vibe Hotel on Rushcutters Bay. You also have the strategically placed Pullman Hyde Park which is within walking distance to the harbour, local attractions, and restaurants. Medusa is a trendy, hip hotel featuring contemporary furnishings and a beautiful view of the city.

Surry Hills

Stay in the heart of the “local district where you find trendy, artsy stores, restaurants, and boutiques. Surry Hills houses the Rydges Sydney Central which is a few blocks from Belmore Park, or the 57 Hotel that offers you a quick walk to Belmore Park, Quay Street, and Paddy’s Market.

Paddington

Away from the waterfront, you enter this unique neighbourhood with amazing art centres, small exhibits; plus you are still within walking distance to the beach. Paddington has the Manor House Boutique Hotel with regal accommodations featuring an eclectic selection of antique furnishings. Arts Hotel has a pool and is walking distance to local attractions. Both are close to public transportation which gives you easy access to Rushcutters Bay and the Australian Museum.

Newtown

Find yourself immersed in live music daily with a short ride to the airport in this neighbourhood. Newtown is home to the Urban Newtown which is a hip new hotel that offers daily wine tastings. Rydges Camperdown is closer to the water and only a short walk to Rushcutters Bay and the attractions of Surry Hills.

Bondi

Bondi is home to the world-famous beach and local attractions. Public transportation to the area is frequent and well-timed, and you are close to Centennial Park. To stay on the water, book a room with Hotel Bondi or The Village Bondi Beach location. Both offer clean rooms with terrace views of the ocean.

Manly

Manly is 15 minutes from the CBD by ferry and offers a more relaxed atmosphere. For a less tourist-heavy seaside, you can enjoy the beaches in Manly. While you are across the water, you still have great waterfront hotels, including the sophisticated Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific or the Quest Manly with beachfront apartments available for short-term rent.

Cheap Hotels in Sydney

Budget-friendly accommodations are found throughout Sydney. In the CBD, you have Travelodge Hotel on York Street which is just 1 kilometre from Circular Quay, local museums, and The Rocks. The CBD also has Vibe Hotel on Goulburn Street, which is a trendy, hip hotel just 1 kilometre from Sydney Tower.

The ibis family of hotels offers a budget-friendly stay throughout Sydney. They have their Sydney Airport location which comes with a breakfast bar. Also, the ibis Budget Sydney East is located on the water at The Rocks so you are close to the beaches. Park Regis City Centre is a hidden gem that offers a cheap stay, great pool, and waterfront views. For a trendy, hip hotel in the middle of the CBD, try the Australian Heritage Hotel.


What to do in Sydney

Regardless of where you stay in the city, Sydney offers family-friendly, budget-friendly, and numerous attractions for visitors. Even if you have limited time, there is a lot you can see and do. Some attractions to see include:

  • The Rocks, which is the oldest area of Sydney, has colonial buildings, sandstone churches, some of the oldest pubs in Australia, and the neighbourhood where Sydney started after the British came to the area.
  • Definitely worth seeing are the Opera House, Sydney Aquarium, Bridge Climb, and the Royal Botanic Gardens.
  • The city offers free attractions too, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, tours of the Government House, entrance to the Australian National Maritime Museum, and the vast Bicentennial Park.
  • Spend the day at Manly Beach which has water on three sides and numerous scenic walks. Also, Bondi Beach is easily accessed by public transportation, and ideal for spending a day outdoors.
  • Visit wineries just outside Sydney, including Hunter Valley, for a taste of the finest Australian wines.
