My Top 10 Hostels in Sydney in 2019

Updated: 1/9/2019 | January 9th, 2019 Hostels in Sydney are expensive. Since I started visiting the city, I’ve seen hostel prices skyrocket as just the cost of living in Australia has gone up. Even when you factor in the favorable exchange rate right now, it’s just expensive to get a bed here, especially at some of the larger, more upscale hostels. However, with a little planning, you can make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. The cheapest hostels in Sydney are found in the K...

Right Here in River City

You got no troubles, right here in River City, friend, if building a sustainable business or a biorefinery is on your mind. The secret of the economics of the bioeconomy is in the riverside cities and towns, if you think about it.   Seaports have changed — so much, you’d hardly recognize how they were a hundred years ago. Then, the prime real estate was on the hills, or away from the water. Think San Francisco’s Nob Hill, or the mansions of New York’s Fifth Avenue. Then, seaport waterfront was...

Unique Sleeps: Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

In a city like Sydney, where citizens are used to the daily dazzle of sun off the Opera House sails and the spectacle of watching the sun set on the commute home across the Harbour Bridge, it’s hard to make a splash. That’s what makes the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour so special. Smack bang in the middle of Darling Harbour, the Sofitel was built from the ground up to fill the gap in the luxury downtown market and the locals are lapping it up. On a regular mid-Winter Saturday afternoon, when che...

Unique Sleeps: West Hotel Sydney, Curio Collection by Hilton

There was a time not too long ago when the south western end of Sydney’s CBD was a ghost town. Sussex Street in particular, on the cusp of Darling Harbour and the city, but capturing the energy of neither. Well, things have definitely changed. Barangaroo brought in a slew of cutting edge restaurants and crowds of office workers. All that was needed was somewhere to stay. West Hotel Sydney has filled the gap nicely, slotting straight into the ultra on-trend designer feel of Sydney’s newest entert...

We take a look at Sydney's newest 5 star hotel, the Sofitel Darling Harbour and stay on its very first night of opening. The luxury chain's new 35 story hotel is nestled in Darling Harbour right next to the International Convention Centre (ICC). The precinct was built in tandem with a view to offer convention centre visitors somewhere to stay and do. But this isn't conference or convention accommodation with its feet firmly in the luxury category.

Amusing Clangers On Qatar’s Oryx One Moving Map

The moving map is a staple of inflight entertainment systems on long haul aircraft. It is much more than a map as the system shows your altitude and speed in real time along with other information. On the Qatar Airways Oryx One system fitted to the Boeing 777-200LR, it also shows information about the places you are flying over. A recent trip showed some errors when it comes to the data for Sydney. Sydney Opera House The Opera House in Sydney is quite a pretty building with an interesting hist...

Did 'Mob Links' Foil Donald Trump's Plan For Sydney Casino?

President Donald Trump's bid to open the first casino in Sydney in the 1980s were thwarted by the New South Wales government due to alleged "mafia connections," according to a report in the Australian. The report in the publication indicated the Darling Harbour casino project was killed off because of a “high-level police report” by the NSW Police Board which said it would be “dangerous’’ to go ahead with it. In 1987, Trump’s joint venture with the Queensland-based Kern Corporation was one of th...

I recently took the opportunity to spend a night at the new Hyatt Regency Sydney, which is the re-flagged Four Points by Sheraton on Sussex Street overlooking Darling Harbour.
