So, you know you're going to get views, history and plenty of places to booze with the suits. But what makes Sydney great are its fabulous little mini-burbs.
Been to Walsh Bay? You should. The onetime theatre-and-dance hub is now a fully fledged entertainment precinct that not only boasts the work of the Sydney Theatre Company and Sydney Dance Company, but great food at diners such as Cafe Sopra and live music at the Bar at the end of the Wharf.
And if you're after something more low-key, the lanes between our skyscrapers now have some of the coolest small bars, pubs, cafes and best craft beers in the country. It's an exciting time to be in the centre of town.
