Are you looking for a way to experience a true soul of Sydney? I know I was fascinated with this city when I was in Australia. There are so many things to see and, regardless of how long you stay or how many times you visit, there is always something new to do and experience. Sydney consists of so many different neighborhoods, all of them offering something authentic and worth seeing. If you’d like to explore this city a bit deeper, take a look at these cool Sydney neighborhoods.
This is a young suburb that has recently become the go-to place for shopping in Sydney. If you’d like to shop for clothes or souvenirs, this is the place to do it. Another thing Chatswood is famous for is its awesome Asian restaurants. My personal favorite was Hakata-Maru Ramen. They have a vast variety of food on the menu; everything is delicious; and their ramen is to die for.
You have probably heard of Bondi Beach if you have talked to anyone who has visited Australia. Perhaps it’s the most popular beach in Sydney and there is a reason for it. Besides the amazing sand and waves that are excellent for surfing, this beach is packed with celebrities so much that people hardly even react when they see one. Of course, this is fun for tourists as it’s a very unique opportunity to see famous people doing anything regular people do – lying on the beach, eating and surfing.
Randwick is a great place to relax and connect with nature, whether you’d like to walk around parks, play golf, or just hike and enjoy the scenery. You can take a walk on Henry Head Walking Track because the view from there is breathtaking. After you get tired from all the activities, go to Wylie’s Baths. This place consists of three natural salt water swimming pools, which will definitely take all your stress away and leave you more relaxed than you’ve ever been. You can find some great options for Randwick accommodation and stay more than one day in this amazingly active neighborhood.
With its dynamic past full of crime, sex and drugs, Darlinghurst has recently risen up to be very enticing to tourists from all around the world. It is filled with eccentric bars where people go for cocktails any day of the week. I visited Eau de Vie, which completely blew my mind away. It is a bit pricey, but you cannot expect otherwise when you visit an elegant jazzy place such as this one. Another famous event in this neighborhood is the annual Mardi Gras parade that gathers a huge number of people every time.
This area is wildly popular for tourists for one reason – a fireworks display over the harbor. It happens every week from May to October. This is why you should plan your trip in a way not to miss this extraordinary event. If you are a true fan of fireworks, you should visit for New Year’s Eve because this fireworks display will utterly stun you.
Now that you have some information on Sydney’s suburban areas, it’s time for you to plan a trip and pack your bags. Even if you have seen Sydney before, you definitely haven’t seen it this way. I find new environments very exciting. Every time I travel, I visit the mainstream spots, but I always leave room for exploring the unknown in a foreign country. It’s fun and everyone should do it. It will give your trip that unique signature nobody else has.
