Layover In Sydney – 72 Hours

| December 13, 2008

Sydney LayoverDecember 2008 issue, they ran a great article, “Sydney: One City, 72 Hours, $1,000.”   It gives some great ideas on what you can do, relatively inexpensively, in a short period of time in Sydney, one of the world’s more expensive cities.

For getting around, you may want to look into the Daytripper ticket, which for $16, lets you ride buses, trains and ferries until 4 in the morning.

Here’s some of the suggestions, that you may want to give a hot on a layover of at least 5 hours:

RestaurantsOpera Bar – Located at the Opera House, this restaurant offers great views of the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Skyline.  (Sydney OPera House, 61-2-9247-1666, email: [email protected], entrees $16-$26)

Pizza Mario – Situated in the Surry Hills parlour, this pizza is considered so authentic it’s certified by Italy’s Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana (accredited member 153).  (417-421 Bourke St., 61-2-9332-3633, pizzas $11-24)
The open-air Bondi markets are fun to check out, for clothing, jewelry and other odds and ends. Check out the schedules here.

The Opera House is pretty stunning from inside and the tour that covers its construction is worth the $25.  Pre-book tours online.

    Your flinght lvaees 11 pm, you wont need to get a hotel,, leave Sac on a train about 3 and get into the city at 6. That will give you plenty of time to get to the airport.If you are running late grab a cab, if not take BART to the airport
