Accommodation in Sydney Central Business District

Sydney has it all: a crazy tall bridge you can climb, a world-famous opera house, too many pubs to count, and fantastic shopping districts. But to find out what else is going on this city, you need to go on holiday there immediately. Book a hotel in Sydney’s city centre and you’ll be close to all of the above and more.

How do I get from Sydney Airport to the city?

Sydney Airport (SYD) is only 12 km from the Sydney CBD area. There are plenty of options to get from here to there, like hailing a taxi, calling a rideshare, or booking a private shuttle transfer. You can ride the rails by hopping aboard the Airport Link that runs every 10 minutes and can connect you with the CBD. If your destination is further away, such as hotels in Greater Western Sydney or Sydney’s north shore, you may want to hire a car. Feeling sleepy? Rest up at hotels near Sydney Airport before you make the drive.

What malls are in Sydney CBD?

Shopping in the Sydney CBD provides you with plenty of options. Some of the more well-known malls include Westfield Sydney, Pitt Street Mall, Market City Centre, and Broadway Sydney. You’ll have no problem finding souvenirs at any of these places, plus high-end fashions, housewares, and anything else you can think of.

What is the Sydney Airport Opal card?

If you want to get anywhere in and around Sydney, you better have an Opal card in your back pocket. This little piece of plastic allows you to catch, trains, ferries, buses, and light rail. If you plan on going anywhere via public transit, this is the easiest way to do it.

The reality of shopping under the shadows of towering skyscrapers is just a click away. Head over to Expedia.com.au and check out our deals for holidays to Sydney’s central business district.

The lifeblood of Sydney, the central business district (CBD) is built upon an iconic harbour and all that life on the water has to offer. From the grand Queen Victoria Building to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney CBD is alive with nature and culture. Restaurants, cafes, and the world-famous Sydney Opera House are all at your fingertips when you holiday in the centre of Sydney. Whether you want to take a romantic harbour cruise with your loved one or climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge with friends, head to this part of the city ready to soak in adventure and create new memories.

Things to Do in Sydney CBD

As arguably the most famous city in all of Oz, Sydney offers a tremendous number of activities and attractions for individuals from all walks of life. Chief among the sights to see here are the world famous Sydney Opera House, with its unmistakable architecture, and the equally stunning Sydney Harbour Bridge that's a mere stone's throw away. Closer to the downtown area is where you'll find Darling Harbour, a happening commerce district that's brimming with shops, restaurants, and other cultural centres. Not far from there is one of this city's most recognizable landmarks, the Sydney Tower. Aside from being the second tallest structure in the southern hemisphere, the tower features an
observation deck with unobstructed views of the surrounding area.

Additionally, there are a number of museums and historical sites in and around the CBD, including the Queen Victoria Building, the Museum of Sydney, and St. Mary's Cathedral. For those interested in taking in a show while in town, the State Theatre is a world-class venue with a rich history. And just outside the CBD, the Taronga Zoo houses more than 4,000 animals across a sprawling 21-hectare peninsula that juts out into the harbour.

Weather in Sydney CBD

Sydney's subtropical climate is one reason why so many people love to visit the capital of New South Wales. Summers in the Harbour City are warm and
only occasionally approach levels of strong heat, but humidity tends to stay relatively low during such heat waves. The CBD is fortunate in that the seasons don't have as dramatic of an impact in comparison to those in the outskirts of the city. And as far as precipitation is concerned, Sydney tends to host most of its rainstorms in the fall and winter months, while the other seasons are significantly drier.

Hotels and Accommodation in Sydney CBD

Sydney CBD hotels are generally upscale, high-rise accommodation that fit right into the city's skyline. Peer out the window of your hotel to see the harbour, opera house, or even Chinatown to the south. Your Sydney CBD accommodation options include properties with swimming pools, pampering spas, and room service. Book your ideal accommodation here on Expedia.com.au today to secure the best price for your next holiday.

Travel Basics

You can arrive in Sydney by car, rail, or the Sydney Airport (SYD). If you want to enjoy the warmest average temperatures, come to Sydney CBD in January and February, when you will see thermometer rise as high as 26 degrees. During the winter, Sydney cools down to as low as 7 degrees. The low tourist season is May through August, so if you aim to avoid crowds this is an ideal time to visit Sydney.
