Explore Sydney

Humming with creativity, Sydney and the regions beyond have so much to offer. 

Whatever you do, Sydney makes it more exciting

Rise and shine

Start the day right. Whether you are Sydney-based or travelling into the city from greater Sydney, NSW or interstate, take a deep breath and inhale the beauty that is the world-famous Bondi Beach. Hit the saltwater pools for some laps, or keep your steps up with a walk along the coastal track, and get the adrenalin going with breakfast and a coffee, or acai smoothie, at one of the many cafes that line Bondi's famous Campbell Parade. 

Recharge your afternoon

As the afternoon starts, it's time to reconnect and recharge. If you're hitting the streets for a business meeting, taking the team for team building, or have some free time on the schedule, there is always something new to discover in the Harbour city. Immerse yourself in a city tour, enjoy a ferry ride from Circular Quay and discover the route up the Parramatta River. Explore Sydney's suburbs, or simply take a meeting in one of the city's great cafes and laneways.

As night falls

Sydney never rests, there's plenty to do day and night. If you're looking for a landmark venue for a gala dinner, somewhere quiet for a more intimate gathering, or just a fun-filled dinner for one, Sydney at night will not disappoint. From dinner cruises on a Sydney showboat, to restaurants with authentic dishes from around the globe and quaint bars dotted throughout the city. All served with a side of live entertainment and festivals year-round. It's all Amazing. It's all Sydney.

Find room to breathe

It's different, it's unique

If you're looking for gems that are well and truly off the beaten track, then here's a few to whet your appetite. Look no further than the NSW Rail Museum. Train boffins will think they've hit the jackpot: a meeting and trains all in the one spot. The space is a homage to the heritage and engineering genius that helped bring Sydney into the modern era with such success. Far removed from its city-dwelling sister museum, the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is a beacon of creativity and culture and a unique venue for tourists and business events alike. Hosting your business event here will be a feast for the senses. Enjoy the wide range of exhibitions, indoor and outdoor amphitheaters, legal graffiti stations, and digital programming options, as well as the breathtaking 2ha of parklands nestled on the banks of the beautiful Georges River. Add these to your next meeting venue shortlist.

Drive success

Rev your engines and get set for anything but ordinary. When we say Sydney makes an ordinary meeting, extraordinary, we mean it. If you're looking to create a team-building experience like no other, or create a break in the day's proceedings, look no further than Western Sydney. Located at the foot of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, Penrith Whitewater Stadium is guaranteed to get pulses racing at your corporate team building event. Or if it's something a little less extreme, but still exhilarating, then head to Ultimate Karting Sydney. This purpose-built racing venue has a six-lane, 450m go-kart track, arcade gaming, motion sensor facilities, and delicious dining opportunities, it’s the perfect place for colleagues to let off some steam.

When you want to go big

When it's time to go big and spectacular, Sydney makes it a whole lot more memorable. Located just 13km from the Sydney CBD and well-connected with buses and a dedicated train station, the Western Parklands City is awash with world-class stadiums and conference facilities, lush parklands, and a myriad of arts and culture opportunities. Outdoor adventurers and gourmands can also benefit from breathtaking waterside venues and hiking and biking trails. With hotels, a range of dining and entertainment options, and vast opportunities for unique team building activities on-site, this is a great location to pull up stumps for a day, overnight, or a few days. Keep going west and you'll find Sydney Coliseum Rooty Hill. At the forefront of arts, culture, and activities in the west, the venue boasts cutting-edge technology and conference facilities, terrific team-building opportunities (such as Zone Bowling), and world-class dining options. 

Head out of the city limits

A few days away

When it's time for that short-haul meeting or conference, sometimes it's a good idea to get away from the big smoke and discover what lies just outside the city.
