With over 4.6 million residents and millions of visitors a year, since 1788 this country has grown in leaps and bounds. Alongside the Great Barrier Reef and other major attractions and cities around the country, Sydney is at the forefront of culture, trends and a haven for tourists.
As the state capital of New South Wales, it’s the most populous city in the country. Building Port Jackson, which is commonly known as Sydney Harbour, the Opera House is a global landmark of culture, music and arts.
It wins hands down as a high ranking world city for quality of life. Maybe it’s because of the sensational summers, or hosting major global events including the Commonwealth Games and the Summer Olympics, or because of the buzz of life in every corner.
Either way, through the year, the city is booming with tons of events and activities. With Cremorne Point Manor just an 8 minute ferry ride away from the Harbour, you can have your cake and eat it. Enjoy an unstoppable array of events such as the Chinese New Year, Australia Day, Sydney Swim and Mardi Gras in the city. Then chill out at the Manor, away from the buzz, while you view the harbour skyline and enjoy a relaxing evening, watching the sun go down. Remember to book your Sydney hotel stay with us at least a month in advance of major events before the hotel books up.
Some of our favorite events through the year that we’d love to share (alongside the above) include The Sydney Morning Herald Sun Run, Sydney International Rowing Regatta, Biennale of Sydney, Sydney Comedy Festival in the first half of the year. Every few days, there’s another booming event taking place in the area so if you’re thinking of visiting the city, then maybe consider a weekday event where our room rates are cheaper.
