Sydney, the largest city of Australia, has been attracting travellers from all over the world for decades. Boasting what is probably the most famous opera house and some of the most heavenly beaches, the city can pride itself for being one of the most entertaining city on earth.

Sydney can be expensive, but the good news is there are plenty of cheap hostels to choose from that are still close to the action. Most Sydney hostels will have activities and events to keep you entertained on your day off from all the sightseeing. You could grab a quiet drink at the hostel bar, cooking some food with friends in the communal kitchen, or hanging out in a leafy courtyard for the afternoon. On the days when you need some space, remember that most hostels will have private rooms available as well. Check out the best hostels in Sydney here.

If you want easy access to the best attractions, check hostels in Darling Harbour, King’s Cross or Surry Hills. For those in love with the ocean, the obvious choice is Bondi Beach, or Coogee if you’re looking for a bit more peace and quiet.

As for Sydney’s main attractions, the majority are close to the city centre and CBD. The most popular are the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the Royal Botanic Gardens. If you want to experience the surf life, head straight for Bondi, or one of these amazing beaches in Sydney. Once you’ve had enough of the tourist trail, make sure to check out the Rocks Market, where you can find over 200 stalls selling jewellery, artwork and all kinds of delicious street food. Head for some of Sydney’s top bars afterwards, or save your money with a few more free things to do.

The fastest option to explore Sydney’s city centre is the train - the City Circle loop will get you to the main attractions in no time. If you want to capture the beauty of Sydney, opt for the ferry across the harbour which is pretty much an attraction in itself. Sydney airport is 8km from the city centre, and is easily reached in just 13 minutes by the Airport Link train that runs regularly all day.
