Head west from your apartment and you’ll find yourself at King Street Wharf and Cockle Bay, popular precincts on the shores of Darling Harbour. Enjoy a cocktail in one of the many boutique bars, a meal in one of the harbourside restaurants, or a 3D movie at IMAX. Play tourist at Sydney Aquarium, Wildlife World or Australian Maritime Museum, or stroll across the footbridge to try your luck at The Star casino.
If you are looking for world-class shopping, walk east from your apartment and into Sydney’s retail heart, with the Queen Victoria Building, Westfield Sydney and flagship David Jones and Myer stores all a short stroll from your front door.
For unique Asian food and culture, head south to Sydney’s Little Japan, Little Korea and ThaiTown. Be sure to sample Yum Cha or a Chinese banquet from the huge array of restaurants in Sydney’s Chinatown, then keep walking through to the Entertainment Precinct and take in a show at the historic Capitol Theatre.
For sightseeing, head north beside the sandstone walls of the Hungry Mile and Barangaroo. Stop at one of the beautiful harbourside cafes at Jones Street Wharf then continue around the harbour foreshore to The Rocks, a must to explore before venturing on to the Opera House and Botanic Gardens. This historic walk will show you the real Sydney but be warned – it is also popular for late-night ghost tours.
