Which area do you like in Sydney?

Hi guys,

Visiting Sydney in December but prices for the city centre are looking extortionate (surprise, surprise!) so I thought I'd have a look further out.

Can anyone recommend which area they like/prefer to stay in when they're in Sydney? I'm going round in circles googling them all!

Thanks.

Have a look at Kirribilli, Cremorne, north Sydney, Milsons Point.

Just across the Harbour Bridge, easy access to the CBD. Alternatively, Darlinghurst, Surry Hills, Glebe

Hi,

Great suggestions but if you choose a location based only on price the sound of gunfire may keep you awake! The other thing you need to be aware of is that Sydney is geographically huge so you need to choose based on ease of travel to where you want to undertake activities/sight see.

Cheers,

I love Manly - easy access from the city by ferry across our beautiful harbour. Gorgeous beach with stunning walks, excellent restaurants with plenty of accommodation to suit all budgets.

How about you give us some more information on your tastes and needs? For example, what is your age and mobility? What do you plan to do at night time; nightclub, drinks, gourmet dining,? Do you like edgy urban streets and vintage clothes or upmarket boutiques? Do you like nature walks? Parts of Sydney are very different from each other.
