Doing Sydney on a budget

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have been coming to Sydney, every 3 years, since 1980.
And frankly, I don't know if the place has gotten better...
But prices have really risen.
In my opinion, the Sydney Tourist Industry, realized after the Olympics that tourists will pay the big buck,,,and charged accordingly..

Here are a few tips, to ease the $$ burden

1. Flights out of Sydney, to anywhere Australia, are incredibly cheap on Jetstar or VirginBlue.
2. Book last minute hotels on Wotif.com. Never book months in advance .
3.book self contained rooms (just like most Australians do, when they are are on vacation)
4. Log onto Groupon and Livingsocial, for Sydney deals - we just got a Manly Kayak, 4 hr deal today, for $36 (for 2)
5.The first place you visit in Sydney, should be the Tourist Bureau. - Spend a lot of time there, and get stuff like the Spit-Manly Walk Map etc..
6. Shop in the Haymarket .

This is the tip of the iceberg,
