I have visited Sydney a few times previously but wanted to do sort of a “greatest hits” return to some areas and also get to some new ones. It took no time for me to realize that this wasn’t doable on my own, so I decided on Ultimately Sydney’s “The Story of Sydney” tour when I saw its general itinerary.... More

Our tour was done in a comfortable large van with a modest sized group. The vehicle was comfortable, and our guide Rohan was simply excellent. The tour provides an excellent overview of key attractions in Sydney in just a few hours, and our guide provided a lot of historical information. Tour stops were at good locations and of appropriate length.... More

One tour was to the Hunter Valley Vineyards, and the other was The History of Sydney. Both tours were excellent; and early in the first day, Helen had become a good friend. We... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
