    Central Business District
    The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
    energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
    buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
    shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
    frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
    dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
    the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
    reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
