What a great place to visit. Nothing beats Sydney Harbour. Great water views and easy to get to with public transport. Nice walk from Ciruclar Quay around and plenty of restaurants and bars to stop at and have a glass of wine or a meal....More

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
