Sydney nights in a week

by sinsisi2006

i'll go to Sydney for a week next month. Knowing that winter is coming, and the night comes earlier, what things are suggested to do at nights during the week?

Is it safe to walk alone at night in Sydney?

Darling Harbour, Circular Quay & the Rocks area are all good for a wander and also a meal. Maybe catch a performance at the Opera House, or stroll down to Chinatown for a great Chinese meal. As a native from Sydney I quite like staying and hanging out up in the Kings Cross/Potts Point area. It's the red light district here, but I find that a good police presence, plus cheaper accomodation and great bars etc. make for a good night out and during the day it has a friendly, village-like atmosphere. Mind you, it's not for everyone.
Sydney is as safe as any large city anywhere in the world. Yes you can walk alone, but just follow the usual precautions that you would anywhere else, ie. leave your valuables in your hotel room, and be aware of what is happening around you.
Enjoy Sydney.

thank you for your guides, betska

You could shout yourself a show at the Sydney Opera House - they have lots of different things on in several theatres - not just opera

that is always a top experience

there are half-tix booths in the city where you can buy tickets for shows for that night at half price - there is an interesting theatre in Kings Cross called The Stables and one in Surrey Hills called Belvoir St.

I would keep my wits about me in Sydney at night - trouble can erupt.

Sydney is safe at night, provided you use usual precautions.
Adding to the suggestions re Darling Harbour, Chinatown,the Opera House etc, I would suggest that you catch a ferry to Manly, walk around there. It is always buzzing- and has great seafood restuarant. Or an evening Harbour cruise will give you another perspective of the city.

take a tour in a boat of Sydney Bay. I had a friend that was a tour guide for one of the standard tour companies, so I don't know the cost, but being out in the bay and seeing how large it is, and so striking!

Sydney Suburbs - Woolloomooloo

by M0B1US

The 'Loo' is far and away my favourite suburb in Sydney and not least because I lived there (see my accommodation tip)! The moment I set eyes on the name, I wanted to live there - I heard it was a dodgy part of town, but that wasn't going to stop me... ;-)

This distinctive area, the first part of Sydney to be colonised, is bounded by King's Cross to the east, William St to the south and the Domain to the west and exudes character in buckets, being home to some of Sydney's most individual and stand out attractions.

It is a schizophrenic suburb, home to some of Sydney's poorest council housing and a large homeless population - at the same time as being the address for Ferrari and Maserati dealerships and having some of the most expensive property in the city.

The 'Loo started life as a rough and ready area of docks and wharves complete with it's seedy trappings of often violent and drunken dockers, sailors and prostitutes congregating in the rowdy pubs and surrounding streets. You can still see the relative poverty of the low income housing in the centre of the suburb and the homeless encampments underneath the raised railway section of the train out to King's Cross. Many of the back streets behind William St are still used by prostitutes and their 'clients'...

On the flipside however, the 'Loo's proximity to the city (a ten minute walk!) has meant a steady gentrification of the edges of the suburb, including the redevelopment of the Finger Wharf into one of Sydney's premier apartment buildings with a number of the most exclusive restaurants in the city. All along William St and the area bordering the Domain, chic appartment blocks and upmarket businesses are turning back the decades of decay turning the 'Loo into one of the most striking examples of the haves and have nots rubbing shoulders side by side... Some of the best places to enjoy a bite to eat or a drink in Sydney are in this very Suburb!

The World famous Harry's Cafe de Wheels, frequented by the stars is right on the wharf where it's been for decades serving up honest pies and mash with gravy (see my tip).

For a place to chill out and sample sublime coffees or teas, you can't go far wrong than Toby's Estate where they roast there own coffee right in the cafe itself (see my tip)!

For one of the best Sydney pub experiences, get yourself down to the Old Fitzroy Hotel for two storeys of cosy bars, excellent beers and a wonderful atmosphere - why not take a team to compete in the weekly quiz (see my tip)?

The Woolloomooloo Finger Wharf is an excellent development of hotel (the opulent W Hotel), luxury apartments with yacht berths and swanky cafes and restaurants, which apart from the wonderful Laurent Patisserie were a bit beyond my budget.

Opposite the wharf were several traditional 'hotels' and another couple of nice cafes - the best of which was the Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel, which as well as serving decent food also had a good bottle store which did regular weekly wine tastings!

By Harry's is a Naval dock where you can see a good proportion of Australia's navy at any one time. Occasionally you get other ships including an American Aegis class vessel and the Chilean tall ship, the Esmerelda, which looked wonderful at night with her rigging lit up like a christmas tree...

So c'mon down and enjoy a real salt of the earth suburb - watch out though...!

Koala

by Gypsystravels

When most people think of Australia they have in their mind a few images, and the Koala is surely one of them. Watching T.V. commercials of Qantas and the cuddly Koala would make anyone want to travel there just to be up close and personal with one of these magnificient creatures. I have seen thousand of Koalas in zoos, but I wanted to actually touch the furry creature. When we planned our trip, my only requisite was to get close and personal with a Koala. To my disappointment you are not allowed to touch, feed or otherwise get too close to the Koalas at Taronga Zoo.

The only experience you actually get is to be photographed with these wonderful creatures, a shame, I really wanted to touch that thick coat.

by FreeSkye

I'm tempted to say you can do what you like - but I guess its like accents - you think you speak neutral and everyone else sounds strange . . . men and women are treated fairly equally (like most other places) - other than that just be nice - smile, thank people, don't get agressive - all the usualy stuff!

Sports mad Aussies!

by thescene

Australians are a sports loving people. There are a number of world class venues where you can watch a wide array of sports. You can visit Olympic Park which was the site of the 2000 Olympics. Here you can watch some Rugby League, or Aussie Rules or even some tennis. Check out the various team websites for schedules.
