Hi Sydney!

OK, so today I thought we’d try something new. Rather than me tell you about what events have been on in Sydney or what’s coming up I thought I’d open it up to all of you! We want to know: what is the best suburb of Sydney, and why?

So yes, this isn’t up to me, it’s up to all of you! Basically we want to know why your chosen suburb is the best and why – you just have to drop a comment below, on our Twitter to the @Sydney_Sider account or on our Facebook page and I’ll add your thoughts to the post!

Now remember, we want to focus on the positives here, so no comments about why other suburbs aren’t your favourite, lets just focus on what you do like! So submit your choice, tell your friends, and lets see if we can find the best suburb in Sydney! Go go go!

Some of the favourites include:

Bondi: Popular with backpackers, billionaires, board riders and the body beautiful, Bondi is one of Sydney’s most stunning beaches, Bondi Beach has a style all its own.

Manly: Nestled between a tranquil inner-harbour beach on one side and a popular Pacific Ocean surf beach on the other, Manly combines a laid-back attitude with a sophisticated dining scene and stylish shopping.

Palm Beach for Sydney’s northernmost stretch of sand with great surf and easy walks along the beach or to Barrenjoey Lighthouse.

Newtown: Colourful and unconventional. Quirky and cool, shopping in Enmore Road and south King Street offers buttons, beads, tiles, tribal gifts, gothic garments and second-hand furniture.

Glebe Claims the title of Sydney’s most vibrant and “alternative” community.

    I think the best suburb in Sydney is Bondi. I love that you can live by the beach and yet be (relatively) close to the Sydney CBD. Apart from the natural beauty with the beach, the Bergs and the Bondi to Bronte cliff walk, there’s great bars, restaurants, shops and cafes so there’s always something to do.
    PS/ Rose Bay is pretty good as well, especially for those who don’t like the crowds of Bondi.

    I love Lane Cove! It’s 10 minutes from town, leafy, quiet, great little village and friendly people. They could do with a live music venue and losing the Gloria Jeans but I still love it.

    The best suburbs aren’t necessarily the ones with funky bars and vibrant scenery but the ones with breath-taking views:

    Guys, I love ALL of Sydney so tell me what in your particular suburb I should visit: parks, national heritage sites, super dooper shopping mall, waterfront park and rockpools, restaurants, live theatre, pubs etc., ? I live in the northern districts so I would recommend a visit to the Cumberland State forest to do the short but beautiful bush walks and then have a /snack there or buy some plants OR cross the road and visit the Koala Park. Behind Beecroft and Cheltenham there are many bushwalks. You can walk from Cheltenham all the way to Lane Cove National Park. So give up the goods will ya!!!!!!

    Ryde it’s in the middle of all these places so you can go to them easily and enjoy them all. Sydney is the best!

    I reckon Cronulla is the best suburb in Sydney because it’s close enough to the city but far enough removed, its part of the Sutherland Shire which just about has everything anyone will ever need, it’s surrounded by water on three sides which make it a haven for water activities and and it’s easy to escape to the south coast or the southern highlands for a good break.
