Places to stay in Sydney

  • Chippendale: A trendy area of Sydney that is characterised by its various renovated warehouses and artistic scene that means it is a popular place to book holiday accommodation. While it is not close to the sea, its cultural offering has transformed it into a site that is renowned for stylish eateries, live entertainment. Wander its many galleries and you’ll never get bored.
  • Bondi: Perhaps the most characteristic suburb of Sydney, this is the perfect place for experiencing your trip with sun, sea and surf. Along Campbell Parade there are cafes to enjoy a coffee throughout the day lazing on the beach, and is one of the most popular spots for apartments near the sea.
  • Darlinghurst: A regenerated area that is now considered to be a plethora of coffee shops, and is a vibrant LGBTQ hub of the city. Stay here for close proximity to some of the greatest eateries and nightlife.
  • Manly: A northern beach suburb which is famous for its surfer vibe and waves. It is a sleepy and laid back beach town, with plenty of apartments to rent. You can reach here easily from the centre of Sydney via the ferry - a recommendable neighbourhood if you’re looking for family accommodation for your trip.
  • The Rocks: Located right next to the harbour, this neighbourhood is of great historical significance and is characterised by the many winding lanes that lead down to the waterfront. The Rocks is home to some of the most upmarket eating establishments and is overlooked by Sydney Harbour Bridge. Booking a holiday home here means that you will be within walking distance to The Museum of Contemporary Art and you can enjoy long walks along the promenade.
  • Newtown: Another of Sydney’s electrifyingly up and coming districts that is well established with eateries, bars, boutiques and cafes for your trip. It is a young area with an equally thriving music and theatre scene. The pubs are second to none, and live music comes as part of the package. If you don’t book a self-catering apartment here, you should at least take a day trip.
  • Palm Beach: Also known as ‘Palmy’ this Sydney beach town is one of the most favoured among locals and visitors alike. Set among rolling hills, you can breathe in the countryside air just moments away from Sydney’s CBD.
  • When to visit the Harbour City

    It is important that you know when Sydney is at its best, as it differs largely to the seasonality across European destinations. The summer months in Sydney occur from December through to February, and this is when the beach lifestyle is at its most popular. This is also, naturally, when prices for holiday accommodation in Sydney are at their highest and when the city is at its most crowded. This is certainly when the city is at its hottest and you should book well in advance. The best time to visit for a compromise between both good weather and cheaper accommodation is during the months of March through to May. This is typically when nights are mild and the weather is good enough to enjoy days out to attractions in Sydney. It won’t be as busy as the ‘summer’ months, so holiday lettings in Sydney are more readily available. The winter season is typically between June and August and is when the accommodation in Sydney is at its cheapest. You will find plenty of cheap deals, and you can still enjoy the winter months with plenty of activities. During September through to November, this season is dry and great for outdoor sports and activities.
