Probably the third or 4th most notable pint to locals in Sydney, everybody knows where this place is. It's been the Center of so many Australian historic events. Plus the train station is right below. The building itself comes with so much history it's well worth a look in, right in the center of the city on George Street.

Located within the CDB and near to the train station and shopping streets, the 19th century Sydney Town Hall is a heritage and colonial themed town hall building that reflected its long withstanding and rich historical past with the British. The building is just like one of the many I have seen in England and Europe, very nice adopting the... More

Well I have not been inside. My review may change completly if I was too go inside. But as for outside. The building itself. It's a nice building to see. Some great photo opportunities of the details that make this building what it is from the outside. It's connected to the train station which is handy if you're on that... More

Sydney beaches are the best beaches to spend time. To say bondi is the best. The south end of the beach is generally reserved for surfboard riding. Yellow and red flags define safe swimming areas, and visitors are advised to swim between them. There is an underwater shark net however it does not stretch the entire beach, it is made up... More

I went to Sydney Town Hall in August this year. It was one of the famous landmark in Australia. I really enjoy the atmosphere inside the concert hall since it is surrounded by silence. It’s my honour to perform as one of the guest musicians, of the Youth Symphony Orchestra of Macau at the hall, enjoyed not only for the... More

All you see is a place full of weirdo, and homeless people, very busy and noisy traffic pass by , dusty and full of rubbish all over the footpath, smelly too. Tram construction next to it never seem to end. World class tourist attraction isn't it?

We visited this building as part of Sydney Open. The architecture is wonderful and it has been very well restored. The main auditorium is a fantastic space - and we were fortunate to hear the organist playing the magnificent organ

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
