CBD

Featuring many of Sydney’s most beloved attractions, the CBD is packed with possibilities. Whether you’re into sightseeing or shopping, checking out restaurants or museums, there’s plenty to do and it’s all easily accessible by bus or the underground railway system.

Want to check out some of Sydney’s most famous icons? Take a train to Circular Quay, where the Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House are just a walk away.

If you fancy some culture, try the Art Gallery of NSW, one of the most beautiful museums in the world. And the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens are close by, offering a peaceful and serene walk with great harbour views.

In the mood to shop, then check out the boutique stores in the historical Queen Victoria Building or the bustling shopping precinct that is Pitt Street Mall.

And of course, night-life is abundant, with many clubs and bars on offer. Or you could visit Sydney’s colourful Chinatown, and enjoy a deliciously authentic Asian meal. With so much on offer in Sydney’s CBD, the hard part is choosing!
