Explore Sydney from holiday homes to rent

Sydney's central business district (CBD) is Australia's commercial hub, and it likes to make sure you know it. With its towering skyscrapers, wide streets, iconic architecture and sprawling parks, there's no mistaking this place for anything other than the powerhouse that it is. But Sydney CBD vacation rentals also put you at the heart of a beautiful and multicultural city, where world-class beaches and richly forested mountains are both within easy reach. You'll find top dining and nightlife spots, plus museums and cultural institutions galore, and as you cruise the waters of Sydney Harbour, you'll wonder why you ever holidayed anywhere else.

Things to do

Tourist attractions near Sydney holiday homes

With Sydney CBD vacation rentals, there's no shortage of attractions. Why not start with a stroll down to Darling Harbour, home to big-hitters like Madame Tussauds and Sea Life Sydney? It's also got the Australian National Maritime Museum, which features a number of museum ships, including a replica of Captain Cook's legendary Endeavour. Sydney's CDB is also home to the gorgeous parkland surroundings of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and the Domain (where you'll also find the Art Gallery of New South Wales), or you could head across the Harbour Bridge to the old-school amusements at Luna Park.

Activities

Things to do near Sydney holiday accommodation

Love your sightseeing? Then get an eyeful of this lot. Central Sydney has some iconic landmarks like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, and among the best ways to see them is to take a trip on 1 of the ferries that ply Sydney Harbour. The area's full of great restaurants, shopping and cultural attractions, and another great thing about Sydney CBD vacation rentals is the transport connections for those all-important excursions. Without much trouble you can be over on the coast exploring legendary beaches like Bondi and Manly, or out west hiking in the Blue Mountains.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Sydney holiday rentals

We're not gonna lie – Sydney's CBD can get a little on the warm side. During the summer months, both the temperature and humidity can sometimes climb uncomfortably high in the heart of the city, but if it gets too much, you've got a great excuse to grab a towel and join the rest of Sydney on the beach. Just make sure you throw the sunscreen in too. Come winter, the weather gets a bit cooler, and many travellers find spring or autumn the ideal time to take a trip to Sydney (autumn's slightly wetter, if that'll swing your decision either way).

Family friendly

Kid-friendly holiday homes near Sydney CBD
