The nightlife is okay, but not up to London standard.

I think I mentioned the Lamrock Lodge in Bondi to you about a month ago? That was a "mention", not a recommendation as such as I only saw the name of the place in a brochure I had handy. Never stayed there as I live in Sydney myself.

Anway, if you stay in Bondi there's some good pubs and stuff there. Also, not far is Paddington and Darlinghurst; a bit of an upmarket / pub / club area.

Try Darling Harbour. This is in the CBD and has some good clubbing spots.

Have fun.

Melbourne has some great clubbing as well as Sydney. The Australian summer sees most of the jetset djs touring to get away from their winters. Big dance parties are Homelands in sydney NYE, Lots of big partties in melbourne NYE and Summerdaze new years day. Two tribe grand prix weekend in march in Melbourne is probably the best dance party in Australia. I am from adelaide so i am not melbourne biased. A good website to checkout on clubbing in Australia is www.inthemix.com.au which has clubbing info on every australian city.

Need more info on Adelaide feel free to contact me

Hi there,

I'm 21 and live in Sydney so I've had some experince with the nightlife.

It all depends on what sort of nightlife you're after. Pub or Club?

If you into the clubbing scene, I would definitely recommend going to Darling Harbour. Check out this site... http://www.clubzone.com/home.asp?city=75 for info on the clubs.

Also check out this site... http://www.sydneypubguide.net has some great info about all the local pubs.

Hope this info helps!
