          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
