Discover Sydney’s neighbourhoods

The Rocks

The Rocks

Where Sydney began, this area contains more historical buildings than anywhere else in the city. Wander the cobblestone lanes and discover a haven of specialty stores, galleries and boutiques offering everything from handmade candles to Aboriginal artefacts. The Sydney Harbour Bridge and Observatory Hill tower above, as does the range of 5 star hotels lining the beautiful waters edge. Sit and relax in a park and enjoy the city's best harbour views.

Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

Often overlooked as Sydney’s modern convention and exhibition heartland, yet Darling Harbour is home to many other popular attractions including the Australian National Maritime museum, Sydney Aquarium, the Chinese garden and Imax theatre. It is also fast becoming the city’s hottest nightspot, offering a choice of popular restaurants and the coolest bars. It is close to Sydney’s only casino, Star City.

Kings Cross

Kings Cross

One of the best known tourist attractions in Sydney (after the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House of course). Kings Cross is ten minutes from the city in light traffic and is Sydney’s main nightspot. Casting off the areas past reputation, trendy cafes and modern bars are common here too. Stay in Potts Point and sample a wide array of menus, covering every cuisine and catering to every taste.

The Eastern Suburbs

The Eastern Suburbs

Stretching from the city along the southern foreshore of Sydney Harbour to North Head, the Eastern Suburbs include the neighbourhoods of Kings Cross, Darlinghurst and Paddington. Call at trendy Double Bay and enjoy the views of Sydney Harbour on the way to Watson Bay. Visit famous Bondi Beach, where the Eastern Suburbs meet the Southern Beaches.
