Best area in Sydney to stay?

Hi There

Just wondering what the best area in Sydney is to stay that is close to shops, restaurants & bars & easy to get to Olympic Park & also Homebush via public transport?

Any help would be much appreciated! THANKS

Anywhere in the city is easy to get to Olympic Park by public transport (train)

The most popular locations in Sydney are the areas closest to the water - Circular Quay and The Rocks. Then there's the more central location closer to the shopping precinct - CBD, Town Hall, and finally the Chinatown and Central Station area. The closer you are to the water, is generally more expensive, and even more so on Friday and Saturdays.

I love Chinatown. It's close to everything, including shopping, transport, Darling Harbour and has great restaurants.

We stayed in the Rocks, and was the highlight of our trip. So much to do, and walking distance from the Opera House and the Harbour. Hard to argue with that, IMO.

100% Nick.

OP, if you could provide us with your travel dates, and an approximate nightly budget, we can certainly help you further with your selection.
