SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES

Sydney City Guide

Welcome to our Sydney City Guide. Our headquarters might be in Melbourne, but we don’t buy into the whole Sydney/Melbourne rivalry. Both cities are fantastic. We travel to Sydney several times a year and always love visiting and catching up with friends. The weather is great, there’s loads of great eateries and bars, and of course there’s the beautiful beaches.Whether it’s the creative vibrancy of Newtown, the breweries of Marrickville, or the always breathtaking views while walking along Sydney harbour, a trip to this city never disappoints.

BE A LOCAL

Wouldn’t it be nice to know a local in every city you visited? A person who knows all the best places to eat and drink in town, the city’s hidden gems, and those off the beaten path things to do? Well that’s what we’re here for. We’ve done all the hard work for you, to help you dive right into exploring the world’s best cities like a local.
