Unfortunately there are many shifty people in inner Sydney. Always lock ALL i.d, things of value etc in the hotel safe and you will be fine...

The Rocks are a wonderful example of how gentrification should work: preserve the old, create a link between the present and the past, communicate history and offer modern facilities and services.

Was it cheap, fast, or easy to use? What made it so simple to get around in Sydney?

Weekly train ticket is probably the cheaper option if you want to venture further afield than the CBD. However it is rather expensive and cost $84 for the weekly ticket, but this still was the cheaper option for us as we were visiting lots of places and we were only there for 4 days, so gave our ticket away to some others at the airport. The cost of staying in a hotel in the CBD was expensive as well. Wouldn't stay and dine in the CBD again because of the cost. We had dinner at one of the Circular Quay restaurants 'the Sydney Oyster Cove' and being a coeliac was excited to see gluten free on the menu, however my meal wasn't gluten free when it arrived just ruined the dining experience, especially considering the cost of the food and drinks.

Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. Breathtaking with a brilliant blue sky and moody on the few occasions there are clouds. The walks around the harbour are clean and give amazing views.

The beach means different things to different people. What did the beach in Sydney mean to you?

Natalie, Australia

To me, the beach means lifestyle. If I could live any lifestyle it would definitely be a beach-y kind of lifestyle. For me that means relaxation and luxury, comfort and feeling right at home and having the view of Bondi Beach. The beaches aren't just great for swimming in!

Why do people say Sydney can be seen best by foot?

Simon, New Zealand

Wide public areas and paths, so that one never feels overcrowded. CBD is compact.
Gardens are beautiful and spread along the CBD. One significant disadvantage: too many beggars and vagrants - surely not necessary in a wealthy city.
