About Sydney CBD

Big and beautiful, Sydney is an Australian icon. The CBD is strewn with iconic attractions, from the soaring sails of the Opera House to the graceful arch of the Harbour Bridge. Sydney CBD serves up some of Australia’s best shopping, as well as a smorgasbord of fine dining restaurants, stunning views, and historic points of interest.

Things to Do

In Sydney CBD, there seems to be a postcard-worthy attraction around every corner. Start with the Opera House, where you can sign up for a tour or score tickets to a live show. Stroll across Sydney Harbour Bridge, or climb it if you dare. For panoramic views, ride the elevator to Sydney Tower’s Skywalk platform.

Circular Quay is a jumping point for ferries and harbour cruises, including the popular Manly route. For a leisurely lunch, nothing beats the atmosphere of Darling Harbour’s waterfront cafes, restaurants and cocktail bars.

Sydney CBD boasts some of Australia’s best shopping, with everything from designer labels and high street fashion to vintage boutiques and colourful markets. Pitt Street Mall is lined with glitzy department stores, while Queen Victoria Building and The Strand Arcade are both shopping hubs and architectural gems.

For a history fix, head to The Rocks for a glimpse of colonial Sydney. Today, its cobblestone streets are dotted with chic cafes, high-end boutiques and trendy bars. Catch a breath of fresh air at the Royal Botanic Garden or take a stroll around Hyde Park.

Getting Around

When it comes to public transport, Sydney CBD has you covered. Simply pick up an Opal card and jump aboard its extensive network of buses, trains, light rail and ferries. You can even use your Opal card beyond the city, in places like the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Hunter Region, Illawarra and the Southern Highlands.
