There is something for all to see and do in Sydney.

Sydney is notorious for being the most expensive city in which to live and visit in Australia. Andrea recently spent the weekend in the harbour city and discovered you can stay on a budget or as a high flyer. There are so many things to do and Sydney can be enjoyed on any budget.


A great way to get your bearings, and to familiarise yourself with the sights and history of Sydney, is to join an ‘I'm Free’ three hour walking tour. The tour starts at the Town Hall in George Street twice a day at 10.30am and 2.30pm (except Christmas Day) come rain or shine and concludes at Circular Quay.

To see many of the sights of the central CBD, catch the Number 555 bus which departs  every 10 to 15 minutes. It does a loop of Circular Quay to Central Station in both directions. The bus runs every weekday from 9.30am to 3.30pm and until 9pm on Thursdays, and weekends from 9.30am to 6pm. You can hop on and off at your leisure to the various sights around the city.

Check into the George Street Hotel for only $59 for a single and $79 for a double. Take a stroll back down to Circular Quay and enjoy a light dinner (around $15) and drinks at The Bar at the End of the Wharf.
