WHERE I LIVE

I have lived in Sydney for the past decade or more but have only ever lived in the inner suburb of Darlinghurst.Regarded as the nightlife area and mainly catering to people of the lower socio economic demographic in the past, it has now become a very trendy upmarket area.So the areas of Kings Cross/Potts Point, Darlinghurst(Oxford st/Victoria st) and Surry Hills(Crown st) are seen as the entertainment locations of Sydney,although I am not a nightlife person and have very little knowledge of clubs and bars etc..The main shopping areas are George st and Pitt st and the historical areas are The Rocks and Macquarie st.

The Main tourist area is Darling Habour/Cockle Bay Wharf,where you will find everything from The Maritime Museum,IMAX Theatre,Aquarium,Wax works and many bars and restaurants.It is within walking distance from the city centre.It is a family friendly and safe area.

Public transport is very good,reliable and easy to get to locations such as the harbour and beaches.

I currently manage a budget guesthouse in inner Sydney city and I know the cost of accommodation is very expensive which is the biggest negative in this city and the traffic congestion is also quite bad but the positive's far outweigh the negatives for the tourist coming to Sydney.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Australia's biggest city.
  • Cons:Expensive
  • In a nutshell:It is one of the great city's of the world.
