Undoubtedly one of the most famous and recognizable cities in the world, Sydney is home to  the world-famous Sydney Harbour and Opera House. It also has the reputation of being Australia’s most culturally significant city.

The most populous city in the country, and certainly one of the most culturally diverse, Sydney is often declared one of the top 10 most multicultural cities on the planet by industry polls, and you cannot help but get a sense of this vibrancy when visiting the city centre.

This also applies to the city’s nightlife scene, with an impressively eclectic mix of traditional Australian bars, wine lodges, ethnic restaurants and festivals throughout the year bringing an almost party-like atmosphere to the city throughout the year.

Be warned that temperatures in Sydney can grow to be almost unbearable during the summer season, and it is always advisable to take safety precautions when visiting at this time of year.

Arriving Sydney Airport

Located around 8km of the city center, Sydney Airport is fairly easy to reach by either car rental or public transport. The airport is extremely well run and you can expect quite a rapid process through the check in, security and baggage collection procedures.

The airport offers many shopping facilities and restaurants to meet your needs, but be advised that these are generally very expensive and previous visitors have remarked on the poor quality of many of the restaurants in particular.

Taxi cabs from the airport to the downtown Sydney can be expected to cost between $12-$18 and car rental queues tend to move a lot faster than other major Australian airports.

Driving In Sydney

Most roads in and around Sydney city center tend to be well maintained and kept in a very good condition. Road signage is abundant and traffic levels are fairly steady apart from at peak traffic hours.

As far as driving in the outback is concerned, ensure that you always seek local advice on your intended route, and that if your vehicle does break down in a remote area, stay with it and do not attempt to walk.

People who stay with their vehicles are generally located quicker than those who leave them, and it may be advised to pick up a good book on driving in the outback to ensure that you are prepared for any eventuality.
