"A Metropolis of the North Shore" North Sydney by cybergenic

North Sydney Travel Guide: 78 reviews and 189 photos

North Sydney is where the city ends and the North Shore begins. Essentially a business district, North Sydney gets very busy during the day with the hustle and bustle of office workers and becomes a ghost town over weekends.
North Sydney has some great restaurants and pubs, along with some of the nicest views of Sydney Harbour.
If you are after a tourists day out you can definately kill a day by walking across the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the city side and then walk underneath the bridge down to North Sydney Olympic pool followed by a fun visit to Luna Park. After Luna Park you have a nice foreshore walk around Lavendar Bay which will give you a peaceful view of Sydney Harbour.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Not as hectic as Sydney city
  • Cons:Ghost town during the weekends
  • In a nutshell:Good place to get stuff done.

    I must add North Sydney on my to do list. Thanks for the tips. Good to see the Aussie soccer team playing well at the World Cup, but too bad how it has ended (I have stopped to count the referree mistakes) :(
