Sydney districts

Sydney's districts are 38 districts divided into districts and quarters, but only the most popular of them are of interest to tourists.

Names and descriptions of major areas

  • Central Business District: here they found a haven of sights in the form of the Sydney TV Tower (its height is more than 300 m; by a high-speed elevator you can get to one of 2 observation decks; inside it is worth visiting a cinema, a restaurant and one of the shops), the Opera House (185- meter building has the Concert and Opera Halls, as well as the most massive organ in the world; entrance to the building is free, but it is advisable to buy rather expensive tickets to the opera in advance), the Circular Quay embankment (parks, restaurants and walking paths are provided for recreation; for New Year and on the occasion of other important dates, festive events and fireworks are held here), Hyde Park (guests will walk through the alleys and gardens, where more than 500 trees grow, and will also see the monument to James Cook and the Archibald fountain).
  • The Rocks: This area with walking paths is suitable for walking; right there you can have a picnic under the Harbor Bridge (you can take amazing photos from the observation deck; if you wish, a guide will accompany you to the top of the bridge, having previously given you a special costume - this entertainment will cost about $ 200).
  • Bondi Beach: This tourist area is famous for its sandy beach, designed for both relaxing and active time (you can surf and play beach volleyball), and the Bondi Pavilion (the center is a venue for cultural events).
  • Kirribilli: will delight vacationers with the Luna Park, where there are many types of attractions, in particular, roller coasters, as well as costume performances.
  • Visitors to Sydney are advised to visit Taronga Zoo (more than 2,600 animals live in 8 geographic zones; Pacific black duck and king spoonbill can be seen in “Wetlands of Australia”, and leopard seals and other inhabitants of the ocean depths - in “Great South Seas”), The Australian Museum (18 million cultural and scientific objects are subject to inspection) and the Powerhouse Museum (among 250 exhibits, it is worth looking at the oldest operating steam engine and a working model of the Strasbourg Astronomical Clock).
