Mini Travel Guide to Sydney
This cosmopolitan city is Australia's largest and oldest – it was founded in 1788. Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson) divides the city in two. The city centre, which is home to many popular attractions as well as numerous restaurants and shopping streets, is on the south shore.
Bustling Circular Quay is the harbour's hub and the waterfront area is packed with bars, restaurants and attractions including the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Royal Botanic Gardens. It's a short walk from the quay to the Sydney Opera House.
For great harbour views from the water, pick up a ferry or take a cruise from the quay. South of Circular Quay is the city centre and the area known as the Central Business District (CBD). The city centre is home to numerous restaurants, hotels, shops and attractions including the Museum of Sydney, the Australian Museum and the Sydney Tower. It’s also where you will find lively Chinatown.
To the west of Circular Key is an area called The Rocks. This is the city’s historic heart. Explore the area on foot and make time to cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge for superb views. Those with a head for heights may choose to climb to the top of the bridge with a specialist operator.
West of the Central Business District and Chinatown is Darling Harbour. A monorail runs from the city centre or it is possible to catch a ferry from Circular Key. Darling Harbour is full of attractions including the huge IMAX, Sydney Aquarium and the Australian National Maritime Museum.
