I was wondering what the city of Sydney is like. What are the different
neighboor hoods like? Is there one section that is more for young adults? Also what is getting around in the city like. What is the public transportation like? How expensive are that taxis?
Any other details would be great. Little more than a month till I leave for OZ. I can't wait!!!
any replies are greatly appreciated,
Wow, lots of questions that one could write pages of information about. But in a nutshell:
There are a few areas for young adults. I'm making a generalisation, but anywhere around the Darlinghurst (nighclubs, bars, restaurants), Paddington (upmarkets, great shopping, pubs), Bondi (beach, restaurants, backpacker places, tourists) areas are pretty popular. These are the suburbs east of the city to the beach. Also, the inner city areas like Newtown, Surrey Hills, and Glebe are other inner city areas that are popular.
Public transport is okay. The train system has had a bad rap lately, but it's quite okay. The bus system around the city and eastern suburbs is quite extensive and reliable. As for taxis, these are expensive like most places in the world.
Here's a link to a real estate site that has some suburb profiles. Go to the "buying" section, then "suburb profiles" and pick the ones I've mentioned.
Wow you certainly have got a lot to write about there J!! he! he!-3 times over!-only joking
Some good info there, no doubt i'll be checking that out myself!
ok, ok, now i understand how you managed it 3 times! you must have got that error up that i got, so i sent it twice and yup-it has entered twice!
My other half doesn't like cities, but fell in love with Sydney. Apart from the obvious stuff like the bridge and opera house, the vibe of the place just makes you feel at home.
Don't restrict yourself to one place. Just go and explore it.
just posting to see if I can recreate this error that came up!
Hmm, didn't seem to have a problem.. maybe it was a temporary overload or something similar.
