Sydney Hotels, Flights, Tours and Cruises



| Find City | Sydney Australia

Sydney is well equipped with some of the best hotels with million dollar view and bargain hostels. Depending on your choice and how much you are willing to pay, you can go from as much as $400 a night in a five star hotel overlooking the harbour to spending as little as $13 in a shared hostel room.

If you wish to spend the night close to the city in a hotel or motel room, you can expect to pay a little more. Consider using youth hostels as they are generally cheaper and more affordable. However, if you prefer sleeping in a hotel or motel room but don't want to pay more, try looking for ones that are outside the city but close enough to walk to the train stations.

Find City takes no responsibility for the owners' change in telephone or fax numbers, postal address or website information.

The most expensive hotels are the ones that are close the Sydney Harbour and Darling Harbour.

Hostels are a great alternative for those who want to save money. Most buildings are old but are usually well-kept. If you are extra lucky, you may find work in the hostels as they are mostly run by travellers who want to work for a short period of time. The only disadvantages are the lack of privacy - you may have to share rooms with other people. Bring along a regulation sleeping bag or bed linen.

Camping & Caravan

Camping and caravaning are a great way to enjoy nature without the stigma of being surrounded by city life. New South Wales has some of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Most of these parks offer camping and caravan parks for a small fee. (some may require that you have a licence for camping) Some parks offer many facilities such as showers, public washrooms, BBQ areas and many more.
