Work, Study, Play

Sydney’s collection of neighbourhoods are diverse and vibrant, with something for everyone. Check out Bondi Beach, one of Sydney’s most famous stretches of sand. This area is a popular hub filled with restaurants, cafés, markets, and plenty of people looking to catch some waves and soak up the sunshine. More than just a pleasant location, Bondi Beach is one of Sydney’s major tourist attractions—its social vibe and great surf make it the place to be at any time of the week.

Head to Sydney’s inner west and explore the hip, urban neighbourhood of Newtown, known for its colourful street art, unique cafes, independent bookstores and youthful ambiance. Bohemian and alternative, this is one cool suburb characterised by its creativity, free spirit and a tendency to make up the rules as it goes.

Further north, it’s hard to believe that the chilled vibe at Manly less than an hour from Sydney’s bustling CBD. Manly’s shopping and dining scenes are worth more than a mention, and the scenic ferry ride to Manly Beach is just one more reason to love this beautiful part of Sydney. Make your next trip a Sydney holiday.
