Sydney Suburbs to Visit

Greater Sydney Map

Exploring beyond the inner city’ limits is a lot of fun, as Sydney has expanded well beyond its original settlement. First centering around its harbour, then north, west and south. To the east, are the many beach suburbs, not only Bondi and Manly, but the Cronulla Beaches and Palm Beach in the further northern reaches.

To the west is historical Parramatta, also great for shopping and a diverse collection of restaurants, bars, pubs and other eateries. Further west is Penrith, at the foot of the Blue Mountains.

The inner city suburbs, too, have their charms. Glebe, Newtown and Kings Cross have long played important roles in the development of this city. Darlinghurst, and its nearby neighbor suburb of Paddington were once known as centres of art and culture, but now has spread there to places like Newtown and Camperdown.
