If you plan to be one of the 10 million visitors that travel to Sydney each year, you will find world-famous beaches and a multitude of attractions, such as the Harbour Bridge, the world’s largest movie screen at the IMAX Theatre in Darling Harbour, snorkeling with sharks at Sydney’s Sea Life Aquarium, or the Sydney and Bondi Hop-on Hop-off Tour, to give a few examples.
Of course, you will also need a place to stay. Learn about booking the perfect hotel for you in Sydney.
Skyscanner offers you a free hotel search tool that can help you find accommodations based on criteria you enter as search terms. You can start with the price range you want, or you can search for hotels based on how they are rated on a five-star scale. You can select the amenities you would prefer, and you can even search for apartments, hostels, bed and breakfasts, and resorts.
You can choose the district of Sydney you want to stay in. Select from the City Centre, City East, City South, City West, Darling Harbour and The Rock districts. You will find room prices higher for hotels near or in Darling Harbour.
The Darling Harbour features rooms from $150 to $700 per night. The other districts offer hotel prices from $50 to $120 per night. The actual rate depends on the other criteria you select.
You can expect to find a wide variety of known-brand hotels in Sydney, including Holiday Inn, Mantra, Rydges, Novotel, BreakFree, Sheriton, Sofitel, Westin, and InterContinental hotels.
You may prefer one-of-a-kind hotels. You will find economical locations like the George Street Hotel and Maze Backpackers, as well as slightly higher-priced hotels like the Shakespeare and The Bayswater Sydney. Above that price range, you will find unique hotels like Swissotel Sydney and the Grace Hotel.
You can select from a wide variety of five-star hotels. These include the Radison, Pullman, Meriton, Four Seasons and Frasier Suites.
Hotel prices vary according to when you go. Here’s a traveling tip: use the Skyscanner cheapest month feature to find the least expensive flights. Book your hotel during the months when flights are less expensive, and you are more likely to find a great deal on rooms.
Definitely something I fell in love with although I do recommend going with or meeting up with friends.
A wonderful city to visit. I would especially recommend the Opera House. Do attend a concert. The acoustics are the finest in the world.
Loved the vibe. Juxtaposition of modern and historic. Hop on a water taxi at the Harbour or just enjoy magnificent views, food and fun.
Your first trip to Australia isn't complete without visiting Sydney! Sydney became what it is today as the British sent their prisoners to the country through its harbour entry. During their stay, the prisoners decided to spruce up the place lol (from what I remember from my tour guide). Ok ok, so in this post, I will discuss with you things to do in Sydney, accommodations, lessons learned and my total costs for travel to Australia from the United States! So let us dive in to my lessons learned: - Have cash available at the Sydney Fish - Market as some stands only accept cash. - Eat at Doyle's at the Fish Market! - Luckily I didn't travel to Melbourne as part of my getaway but in April it was really cold (for me). - Buy coffee beans in Melbourne for a souvenir! - Upon arrival to Australia, 16 countries including the US, goes through e-passport. You scan your own passport and take your own picture! And yes you save space in your passport as you don't get stamped. - I recommend visiting the Wildlife Park for about 2 hours. - Visit the Circular Quay (pronounced Key) area in Sydney for great pubs, people watching and access to the harbour! It is also a transportation hub for ferries and trains. Oh and it is a great place to get photos of the opera house and bridge. - In Sydney, stay in the CBD area for easy access to tourist attractions and local activities. - If you decide to go to the Handa Opera, eat before or after as the food is expensive there. - Per the tour guide (someone please verify), the first Harbour was originally where the Sydney airport is located but the water was too shallow there. Therefore, the harbour moved to its current location. Get more details at KitatheExplorer!
