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

the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
