Sydney, the largest city in Australia, has an incredible range of attractions and things to do. Here’s what you should know in order to savour the best of this splendid city.

When to Go

March to May and September to November are some of the best times to visit Sydney. These are shoulder seasons during which you don’t have to struggle with massive tourist crowds; therefore, you will find amazing deals on airfare.

Things to See and Do

Apart from the famous attractions in Sydney (for instance, its Opera House), one should visit attractions such as Mrs Macquarie’s Chair; this is a must-visit location with a lovely vantage point. It is located approximately 3.8 kilometres from Oaks Sydney Goldsbrough Suites via Mrs Macquarie’s Road.

Getting Around

Sydney has a lot of options when it comes to getting around. Its bus fares depend on the number of zones to which you choose to travel. ‘City Circle’ is Sydney’s train, which stops at many major stations and it is considered the best way of getting around the city centre. An Opal card can be used to pay for both these modes of transport.

Where to Stay

There are some great Sydney hotels you’ll find across the city. Bondi Beach is considered a great neighbourhood for first-time visitors.
