Description Streetwise Maps STREETWISE Map Sydney
Sydney is Australia’s premier city. There’s an attitude of let’s have fun that permeates everything in this city. If there’s a celebration to be had, Sydney does it up big. This is one of the best cities in the world in which to celebrate New Year’s Eve and the festivel mood continues on throughout the year.
The Rocks, the old town historic section of Sydney, is located across from the Opera House. First settled in 1788, the European Colonists' homes and businesses have been restored and now house trendy restaurants, boutiques and galleries. The Rocks Market, held every weekend at the north end of George Street and Playfair, is a wild streetmarket featuring everything imaginable.
Woolloomooloo Wharf is a perfect spot for al fresco dining. Restaurants line the wharf attracting the attractive of Sydney who come to enjoy the view. Next door is Kings Cross, party central for the nightlife crowd. What used to be the red light district has become the all night district with clubs and bars for every taste. After you’ve worn yourself out sampling them all, stop at Harry’s Café de Wheels. A landmark for the past 60 years, Harry’s serves up a favorite national dish, the Australian meat pie, with a generous helping of mashed potatoes and mushy peas on top. Various sauces are available to gussy up your pie, or keep it simple with a chilidog extraordinaire (mushy peas are also available for your dog). These iconic entrees may not sound appetizing in print, but visit in person and you’ll understand the devotion. It’s also a great sponge after a night of alcoholic enthusiasm.
The Royal Botanic Gardens, covering 30 hectares, is an oasis in the center of the city. Two aspects of the garden are of particular interest: Cadi Jam Ora, the First Encounters Garden and Mrs. Macquaries chair. Cadi Jam Ora is a garden devoted to the Cadigal people, the Aboriginal inhabitants of central Sydney. The garden, filled with plants native to the area during their time, tells the story of the Cadigal people and their first encounters with the Europeans during the settlement/invasion. Mrs. Macquarie was the wife of Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of New South Wales in the early 1800’s. The Macquaries lived in Government House, located within the Gardens and open to the public for tours, and Mrs. Macquarie used to walk out to a rocky point overlooking the Harbour and watch the ships come in. A chair carved out of the solid stone is where she used to sit and nowadays it’s the best location to take pictures with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge as your backdrop.
Darling Harbour is a prime spot for relaxing along the water. Restaurants are numerous in Cockle Bay, part of the Harbour, and the attractions of the Australian Maritime Museum, the Star City Casino and the Chinese Garden will vie for your attention. The Sydney Aquarium is the number one attraction in Australia and is located adjacent to the Pyrmont Pedestrian Bridge. You’ll also find the Sydney Convention Center, Exhibition Center and Harbourside Festival Market place here.
