About Sydney city centre

Sydney City centre (CBD) fans out from the focal point of Circular Quay, which is a major transport hub within walking distance of the city's star attractions - Sydney Harbour Bridge and two World Heritage sites - Sydney Opera House and Hyde Park Barracks.

The city centre offers an exciting variety of attractions, including designer boutiques, fine restaurants, hip bars and lavish department stores. Attractions here are many and varied - such as the Art Gallery of NSW, pretty Hyde Park and Sydney Tower Eye, with its 360-degree views stretching as far as the Blue Mountains on a clear day.
