Sensational Sydney is a city of superlatives, as fresh as the concrete sails of its iconic Opera House which seemingly flies above the bright blue harbour. Clean and neat, amid the skyscrapers there is a wonderland of fun for tourists who holiday in Sydney, from the thrill of bridge-walking to leisurely dining in waterfront restaurants,more
Sydney, Great place! - Dusan. Date of travel: Mar 2010
Great place to work and live, good balance. In my country there are a old phrase: work to live, donít live for working. There are a plenty of restaurants, cosy bars, pubs, etc.. Everyone can find a lot of good things for himsellf! Great people!Not to mention its magnificent beaches... If I have to give an appraisal from 1 to 10 Ė with no doubts I give 10!
Spirit of Bali - Worst place I've ever stayed - Charolotte. Date of travel: Jan 2009
The Spirit of Bali in Byron Bay is expensive, spider ridden (including the bed), has poor bathroom facilities and the host, Donna, was rude and unhelpful. We left without staying a night and were charged for two. Check your bill - the date our credit card was billed, was before we even arrived. The worst place I have ever stayed!

On arrival, I was confrunted by a spectacular skyline view of the city - PRETTY AMAZING. I stayed at the Boulevard hotel located on William Street near Hyde Park, ideally located to explore the vast attractions Sydney has to offer. These include the famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge which you may climb for an unforgettable 360 degree view of the city. If your not as daring, the tallest point of Sydney - The AMP Tower also provides fantastic skyline views. I also visited Darling Harbour, Bondi Beach, The Rocks and many shopping Malls. If you enjoy a good meal, you'll be spoilt as there is alot to choose from and nightlife is no exception. It's 24/7. Overall, it was a fantastic holiday!!!! Tour Operator: Airtours

Me and my husband had been to Australia last march... the moment we landed at the Sydney airport it was totally a different experience for us. We really found Australia to be a paradise on earth. The walk below the Harbour bridge was really great, then the cruise and Opera house really amazed both of us, and the people are so friendly that you dont feel as if you are in some other country. You can easily travel by trains there even. We enjoyed the Indian food in Australia. Shopping in Australia is really some thing one should never forget. All those Australian goodies like boomerangs, kangaroos, choclates, perfumes, wow... it's really great. I even liked the aboriginal music,totally, it's a great experience to be in Australia.

We went to Australia on a 2-stop tour in December 2004. Sydney 5 nights, Palm Cove in Queensland for 7 nights. Sydney was incredible - everything you expect it to be. We stayed in the Rocks area which is the best place to be. The hotel was just a couple of minutes walk to Circular Quay, the bridge and Opera House. The Rocks has an ambience of its own and lots of history and museums, good shopping areas selling non-tacky souvenir stuff - some really nice shops. You have to go to the Fortunes of War, reputed to be the oldest bar in Sydney it has lots of atmosphere and a real change from the many modern bars around the area - they also do good food. No shortage of places to eat though, offering a wide choice. The ferries are excellent and Captain Cook Cruises to be recommended - we had an evening cruise with dinner which went around the harbour, the food was excellent and entertainment too. The botanical gardens are superb and have to be visited. You also have to go to Darling Harbour which has lots to offer. Tour Operator: Travel4less

The MG Garage is now closed. It has been replaced by a XO. XO was closed throughout the Christmas and New Year holiday. The Sailor's Thai was a good recommendation but had a somewhat limited menu which excluded a number of the key dishes that you would associate with Thai food. The service was good and professional. One of our party had a nut allergy and they were excellent in assisting with both recommendations and guidence. The Rockpool restaurant was excellent with a strong remmendation for the tasting meu and with the wines included. Their tea smoked duck was one of the best dishes that I have ever tasted.

Now I know what everyone has been raving about - Sydney is really stunning. Very cosmopolitan and work orientated, but how cool is it to be able to go to work on the Harbour ferry every morning with those views! Pretty awesome to see the Sydney Opera House and bridge from different angles. The ferries are the best way to see the city from the water - the Manly ferry has great views back over the city centre.
