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

What a gem, an amazing Australian heritage-listed town hall building located in the central business district of Sydney and a major landmark of the city. This building has had a major refurbishment and now shines beautifully. I had the pleasure to have a quick look at the interior while in Sydney and found the experience well worth the time. The...

Tour operate every Tuesday and takes about two hours. You can take a look back and learn the history of its building. Also free organ concert is held here once a month - it is so wonderful that you wouldn't believe it's free. Highly recommended.

Fantastic venue for all sorts of things, especially music. The hall lets the music flow through the hall leaving no mistakes to be hidden. All thumbs up. If you have the opportunity to watch or even play in that hall you should be very grateful.

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.
