Bennelong Point

The Sydney opera house is the most sophisticated place to visit in the city. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its exterior resembles sea shells, or sails, which is simply awe-inspiring. If you truly want to capture its iconic shape from a great angle, we recommend going on a harbour cruise. So if you decide to book a room in this part of town make sure to visit it. It consists of theatres, exhibition rooms, an enormous concert hall, and cinema. You can get exclusive tickets which offer a detailed tour of the opera house and are rather affordable. Make sure to stroll by some other famous spots in the neighbourhood.

This elegant neighbourhood is cosily located between Cleveland street and Broadway.  With a lot of new developments going on, this area is rapidly attracting quite a lot of local, as well as foreign attention. This part of town hosts the most sophisticated art hotel in Sydney. A visit to the Chippo, as the locals call it, is surely pointless if you don’t peek into some of the most hyped locations there. The hip new Brickfields bakery and cafe is certainly going to have you coming back for the delicious pastries. The Ester Restaurant and Bar, on the other hand, offers a more family-friendly environment with relaxed music and high-quality food.

Kings Cross

This neighbourhood is famous for its wild nightlife. So, if you desire to spend and amazing night filled with drinks, parties, loud music and cool crowds, then this is the place to be. And If you want to stay somewhere where you will be a stone’s throw away from the best clubs such as the the World Bar and Club, or Candy’s Apartment, then book a room at the luxurious Highfield Hotel or the Springfield Lodge.

Bondi and Southern Beaches

Sydney is a place with many extravagant beaches such as Bondi and Coogee beach.  Bondi Beach is located on the South Pacific coast just 7 kilometres from the city centre. It is one of the most popular attractions with thousands of daily visitors arriving here during the peak of the summer season. The most fun activity is the Bondi to Coogee walk, which is great for sightseeing and snapping some cool Instagram photos. Other famous beaches include Bronte, Tamarama, and Maroubra. We all know that Australia is famous for having quite a dangerous wildlife population. This also includes sea animals, so make sure that you are always between the red and yellow flags. Don’t hesitate – try it all out – surfing, snorkeling, paragliding. This beautiful part of Sydney is great for a summer vacation with your family, so if you have never visited it, make sure to add it to your bucket list.

Homebush West

If you are looking to get a good deal on clothes, or if you are a chronic shopaholic, than this is the number one spot to stay at. Only 15 kilometres from the city centre lies the one and only DFO right next to Sydney Olympic Park. On the ground floor, you can buy anything from homeware furniture to sports clothes and equipment, to hardware items. The second floor is more for fashion oriented buyers, since you can find a plethora of fashion retailers.
