Darling Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst is one of Sydney's most popular artistic and cultural hubs, and is dearly loved by many holiday makers, students, designers and shopaholics. Located in the inner city, Darlinghurst is constantly bursting with energy and life. It is a suburb that attracts many different types of individuals who admire its architecture, drink many a good coffee and visit art exhibitions which are constantly occurring in the area. As it is also one of Sydney's oldest areas, Darlinghurst contains many well preserved sand stone buildings that are still being used today. The National Art School is one of these, and is not only enjoyed by its students, but also visitors who come to admire its beautiful architecture.

Things to see and do

Darlinghurst is a fantastic unique area to book your holiday accommodation and you will be blown away by the amount of sites to see, and activities to take part in. Darlinghurst itself is located near Oxford street which is renowned for its fantastic collection of trendy and one of a kind shops and cafes. It is an incredibly multicultural strip containing some rather outrageous boutiques, and definitely contains something for everyone. If you love to eat, you will definitely be in heaven if you arrange a holiday rental in Darlinghurst. Saying that there is an array of great cafes and restaurants is definitely an understatement. You will be blown away by the divine, flavorsome cuisines, and will no doubt want to spend more than one night eating out.

Fun At Night

Darlinghurst is also renowned for its nightlife, and if you love to party or enjoy a couple of drinks after a good meal, you will not be let down. There are a range of great bars, nightclubs and pubs that will be sure to offer you a fantastic night out.

Travelling Around Darlinghurst

Busses are running frequently throughout the main streets of Darlinghurst, and will escort you into Sydney's CBD for a reasonable price. Darlinghurst is so conveniently located, being less than ten minutes from popular attractions including The Sydney Tower and The Sydney Opera House. Taxis are also abundant, and drivers will happily take you to various destinations around the city. Bondi Beach is also a short drive away, where you can relax on the sand and enjoy ocean views.

Have Fun With The Kids

If you are travelling with children, visit Darling Harbour to see The Sydney Aquarium and go to the Imax Theatre for a fantastic 3D movie experience. At this waterside area you can also eat out at one of many fantastic restaurants, or stroll along the wharf as you enjoy a scrumptious gelato. You could even take a family ghost tour if you are game!

Climate in Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst and its surrounds experience humid summers and mild winters. During the hotter months, temperatures range from around 25 to 30 degrees Celsius, and in winter the temperature is usually around 10 degrees. No matter what time of year you choose to organize a rental appartment or holiday house in Darlinghurst, you will be sure to enjoy yourself and make some fantastic memories. If you are more of a beach lover and plan to spend time in the Sydney surf, it is definitely a better idea to travel from December to February.

Getting there from the UK

If you have made the choice to travel to Australia, it is always a good idea to book your ticket far in advance in order to avoid inflated ticket prices. The flight is more than twenty hours from the UK and although you can purchase a direct flight, many airlines will give you a stop over in another country. This will allow you to break up the flight time a little.

On arrival in Sydney there are a few options you can take in order to get to your accommodation in Darlinghurst. Public transport is more common amongst locals who know their way around the city, and can be exhausting for travellers booking a holiday appartment especially if it is their first time in the country. In order to get to Darlinghurst from the Airport using public transport, it is necessary to take a train to Museum station, and then a bus which will take you directly there. Depending on the bus and train times, this can take only around twenty five minutes.

Another option would be to catch a taxi from the Airport, and they are always abundant. If not, a driver can be arranged for often a reasonable price, and you would arrive at your holiday destination in around twenty minutes.

The location was exactly where we were wanting to be. The standard of presentation, cleanliness, accuracy were first class as was the security and the manner the people at the door greeted and looked after us. Good to have the second bedroom to offer my brother from Avalon for a night so he didnt have to drive home, together with the space to enjoy a few drinks. Wifi good. Giselle, the host very pleasant. And the view of the harbour bridge with Sydney turning on the fabulous Vivid Light show. Altogether made experience Grrrreat!! Thanks from Chris and Yvonne from Sandspit Nth of Auckland NZ PS Please dont print this comment, but a map to show where your office is to get key would be better than described as across the road.

potts point is in the heart of hip town. it was a lovely studio and was great for what we needed. i recommend taking public transportation as there is very little parking, but for the most part everything is within walking distance. amazing restaurants within close proximity.. the hosts were quick to address an concerns we had. there had been some construction going on in the building, and had left a smell, so we opened a window, which made it chilly, he brought us extra blankets. the only thing missing is/was a blow dryer. many places have them now, as it is a cumbersome thing to travel with. it is a somewhat young part of town with hostels near by so the noice level does stay up til the wee hours, but that is by no means the fault of the host, and if you are looking to party in sydney, that is a great place to stay. (don't throw one there) but you can get to many from there.
