Whether you're organizing a short break or a long and lingering vacation, you should know some basics about Sydney before setting off.
Canberra, the capital of Australia, is 150 miles (241 kilometers) to the southwest of Sydney.
At last count, the population of this area of New South Wales was 4,600,000.
You're on vacation! Why not splurge just a little? If you want first-class service and silky soft sheets, lock in a room at the Park Hyatt Sydney (7 Hickson Road) or the Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour (61 Macquarie Street). However, if you don't think you'll see much of your room, how about a cheaper option like the Ultimate Apartments Bondi Beach (59 O'Brien St) or the Manly Beachside Apartments (29 Pittwater Road)?
Traveling's about soaking up those remarkable sights. If Sydney Opera House is number one on your program, it may be good to stay within walking distance. The Quay West Suites Sydney is 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers) away, while the Establishment Hotel is 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers) away.
Historic bridges are often iconic symbols of a destination. Stop by Sydney Harbour Bridge and find out more about how and when it was constructed and the part its played in the city's history. Like some more options? If theme parks send you into a stupor of excitement, look no further! Whether you're an adventure addict or you're more laid-back, Luna Park has the perfect ride for you. But there's more. Get into the vacation spirit by partaking in a tipple or two at The Intersection. Whether you've got your eye on a pint or something stiffer, it's the perfect pit stop for happy hour.
