The Sydney Town Hall is a landmark must see. On George street right on top of Town Hall station, the building has great design and is awesome inside.

This place is kind of in the middle of everything. It is just off the aptly named Town Hall metro stop. You can see it from everywhere as it sits prominently in the square there. About 150 years old. With the famous clock tower and...More

I recently visited to see the 175 years in 175 objects exhibition, which was interesting. The building itself is beautiful, and worth seeing when it is open to the public.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
