Sydney’s CBD: Holiday at the Heart of It All

Sydney’s Central Business District, or the City, as many locals call it, is the epicentre of the NSW capital’s hustle and bustle. With an interesting mix of historic structures, modern amenities and tourist hotspots, Sydney's CBD is filled with life and offers a vibrant environment that is perfect for a holiday. The permanent population of the city is on the small side, but the influx of visitors from the surrounding towns and from out of the country means that there is a constant flow of people in the streets. There is no shortage of housing options right in the city, either; visitors have the choice of apartments, houses and even studios right in the heart of the action.

Sydney CBD Icons

One of the most well-known buildings in the world, the Sydney Opera House is a staple in the Central Business District. Join the many photographers snagging a picture of the building or sign up for a guided tour. There are many cafes and eateries surrounding the site, which allow visitors to take in the powerful ambiance while dining on the harbourfront. While on foot and near the Opera House, check out the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Make it to the top of the bridge to take in glistening water views and breathtaking cityscapes.

For historic grandeur, do not miss the Queen Victoria Building while in the CBD. The structure is identifiable by the large-scale dome on the top. Both inside and out, the old-world structure has been renovated to modern standards while still retaining all of the charm one expects of a 19th-century structure.

Retail Therapy in the CBD

A favourite form of entertainment, shopping opportunities are bountiful in Sydney's Central Business District. Of course one of the most prominent retail options, with over 180 stores, is the Queen Victoria Building. This premier shopping destination boasts a great mixture of high-end and lesser known stores and attracts thousands of shoppers every week. Two of the other popular areas for retail therapy include Pitt Street Mall and Westfield. For an entirely different shopping experience, check out Chinatown, which is in the south part of the city.

Art and Culture in Sydney’s CBD

The shear volume of museum choices is just one of the perks of making your holiday in the Central Business District of Sydney. Choose from favourites such as the Australian Museum, which highlights natural history and explores the species native to the country; Hyde Park Barracks, a former establishment for government-employed male convicts; the Museum of Sydney, which highlights the colourful history of the popular Australian destination, and many other informative sites. If art is your preferred form of culture, there are a vast number of art galleries in the city. There are traditional, modern and even aboriginal art galleries to provide viewing pleasure for all visitors. In Sydney's Central Business District, the performing art community is also strong.

Greenery in the CBD

While filled with skyscrapers, world-renowned structures and towering buildings of all types, the Central Business District also boasts plenty of open green space and natural surroundings. For a look at local flowers, trees and plants, head over to the Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney. Free walking tours are offered daily. Hyde Park - Australia's oldest park - is located within the city's centre, as well, and is the perfect place to look at monuments, to enjoy flowers and water features and to have a picnic or play with the kids. There are even branches of the Great North Walk trails in the Central Business District, on which you can get some exercise while enjoying the scenery.

Something for Everyone in Sydney CBD

The daytime in the CBD is filled with life and excitement, and this does not cease when the sun goes down. Night owls are also accounted for in the city centre, thanks to exciting nightlife options. With something for everyone old and young, single and with a family, natives and out-of-country travellers, Sydney's Central Business District is the ultimate holiday destination.

There is a pull down shade between the living room and bedroom and there is no door for the bedroom area. Also, we were only left 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels, no wash cloths. Plus only 1 extra roll of toliet paper. Would have been nice if they would make sure you have enough for the entire lenght of the stay. Living room is starting to show some wear in furniture. It is a great location. Walking distance to several places to eat and to catch the Hop On Hop Off bus to downtown.
