The CBD is Sydney talk for "downtown Sydney", a huge area that mixes high-rise office buildings with shopping malls, hotels, museums and everything else you could imagine. It's busy. It's crowded. It's fast-paced. Sydney is as lively and challenging to the visitor as any other big city. The overall tone of the place changes dramatically on weekends versus weekdays, as well as the aforementioned day-night contrast. Most people who work or visit the city during the day commute back to the suburbs at night.
Pedestrians should beware of traffic and crossing streets. Too many people are being hit by vehicles.
I recommend a walk around the area surrounding the Sydney Town Hall, which has so much life.
Please be careful of the George Street precinct on Saturday nights. It's getting dangerous.
