Sydney Guide

A Guide to Sydney

Know Before You Go

  • Get free WiFi. Australia is notorious for its expensive and slow internet connection. If you need to get online and want to save money go to Maccas (McDonald's) and use theirs for free.
  • The voltage in Sydney is 220. Most hotels and airport lounges lack 110-volt outlets, so make sure you bring an outlet adaptor and a voltage converter if you plan on using any electrical devices.
  • Download the Arrivo Sydney app. It provides real-time departure and location information for trains, ferries and light rail.
  • If you're backpacking, avoid staying in the CBD hostels. They are more expensive and cheaper options are available in the King's Cross area. 8-bed dorms usually cost AUD 26, and 4-bed dorms start around AUD 33.
  • Go to backpacker bars for cheap drinks. If you don't want to spend AUD 10 or more on a beer, head to World Bar or Ivy Hotel. Both establishments have drink specials ranging from AUD 4-7.

 Getting Around Sydney

  • Hop on board a train. The network is tourist-friendly with many of the city's top attractions easily accessed from the City Circle line. If you plan on using the system a lot, buy an Opal card, or you can buy a single-use ticket at any station.
  • Take the public bus. It's a reliable and cost-effective way to get around the city. The only downside is that the traffic jams often cause delays. If you're not in a rush to get somewhere, you can buy tickets on the bus or from selected retailers.
  • Go on a ferry. If you want the best views of Sydney Harbour or want to take a trip to Manly Beach, a ride on a ferry is a must. The boats leave the harbour every 25 to 40 minutes, and fares start at around AUD 6.20.
  • Hire a car. For getting around the city, using a car is not recommended. The traffic is often gridlocked, parking spots are hard to come by, and fuel is expensive. Save money by only renting a car for day trips outside of the CBD.
  • Hail a taxi. Metered taxis and ride-sharing services like Uber are available. Expect to pay about AUD 2 per kilometre and keep in mind that there is surcharge pricing during rush hour and on the weekends.
  • Explore the city on foot. While walking is a great way to get your bearings and see individual neighbourhoods, Sydney is too big to conquer solely by foot. When you get tired, use one of the other methods of transport to get you to your next destination.

Best time to visit Sydney

When is The Best Time to Visit Sydney?

The best time to visit Sydney is during its two shoulder seasons. From September to November and March to May, you'll find better hotel and airfare rates and fewer crowds.

Temperatures will start to warm up in September, with daily averages around 21°C. But if you're visiting in May, you'll need to bring a light jacket. The temperature drops to 15°C as Australia's winter approaches.

December to February is high season in Sydney. The city sees an influx of international travellers from the Northern Hemisphere looking to escape their winter months. Expect prices to be higher, booked out hotels and long lines at top attractions. But if you don't mind the crowds, you'll be in time for some of Sydney's biggest festivals. Australia Day, Sydney Festival and the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival are all worth planning your trip around.

The cheapest time to visit Sydney is during its winter months. From June to August, the dip in temperature sees the city's crowds thinning out and prices dropping to their lowest. You'll be able to find great bargains for hotel rooms, making the chilly weather worth the money saved.
