Inner City Sydney Region Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Inner City Sydney Area
There aren't many cities in the world where the sky and harbour reflect in the skyscrapers. Where many inner city districts spoil and pollute adjacent harbours, the Sydney CBD is quite the opposite. Rather than disagreeing with its natural beauty, the city centre complements one of the world's most visually spectacular regions.
Professionals exit their nineteenth century apartments on York St as the grind of coffee beans trace the nip in the morning air and the city's activities slowly awaken. Spanning from Ultimo, wrapping around the CBD and finishing at Centennial Park, Sydney's inner core is architecturally textured from the grand neo-classical banks lining Martin Place to the industrial warehouse conversions of Surry Hills. Work, eat, spend or hang out. Every Sydneysider has a favourite suburb and the many faceted personalities make the city a pretty exceptional place. No other place in the world lures such a diverse range of people and concentrates them in one single space for events and things to do.
Listen to the buskers in Central Station or stroll down to Chinatown where Yum Cha is open till 4am. Window shop in the Strand Arcade or get lost in Pitt Street's multi-mirrored cluster of mega malls. In summer, casual al fresco dining reigns down in Newtown where couples sit back, laugh and lose track of the cocktails. Catch the orange sunset illuminating the Sydney Harbour Bridge from Observatory Hill or take in the charming villages of Balmain, where there are more pubs than anywhere else in Sydney. Glebe Point Road is one of the perfect places to go to catch a Saturday market and relish in multicultural aromas as you wander past attractions such as bands, jugglers and acrobats.
