A short-term (or long-term) Airbnb stay gives you the opportunity to live life like you normally would. The only difference is that you are living in Sydney like a local Sydneysider. 

The accommodation gives you far more options than hotels. Most Airbnb rentals come with kitchens allowing you to shop and cook your own meals. You may even find great accommodation with outdoor space to stretch out. 

Sydney is a unique travel destination. It is essential to visit Sydney on any trip Down Under. As Australia’s largest city, it attracts Aussies and foreign travellers from all over the globe. Thanks to its immense size, Sydney has a variety of Airbnb properties to pick from. Once you book your Airbnb, you can begin planning your sightseeing around the city. 

FUN FACT: The Sydney Tower Eye, often known as Sydney Tower by Sydneysiders, has been a crucial component of the renowned Sydney skyline for the past 30 years. With a height of 1,014 feet, the Sydney Tower is the second-highest observation tower in the Southern Hemisphere. This fascinating building has a rotating restaurant on top, making it an exciting place to eat.
