Be seduced by shimmering Sydney with this app – whether you’re visiting next week or a local resident. Sure, you can snap the Opera House, climb the Harbour Bridge and sizzle your body beautiful on Bondi Beach (and these things are wonderful!), but there's a great deal more to Sydney than the city's in-your-face sites and sights.
How This App Can Help You
• Get your head around Sydney's city centre and the immediate neighbourhoods, as well as how to get there
• Sniff out some wonderful, off-the-tourist-track wine bars and coffee haunts
• Photograph everything from convict's rock carvings to koala bears
• Learn about the history of the region's indigenous groups and The Rocks, Sydney's original settlement
• Easily sort for the perfect boutique hotel in the best neighborhood for you, as well as the city's best cocktail and seafood dishes.

• Discover (a local's) Sydney - Bondi and beyond...
With around 230 entries and 2800+ photos (including snaps of signage to help orientate you), this app includes essential sites and sights plus secret spots and the author's favourite local haunts in and around Sydney's city centre and immediate neighbourhoods. The author has personally visited each place listed here; her editorial coverage and opinions will help guide you to the perfect wine bar, restaurant or cafe (highlighting budget, atmosphere, type and value for money); enhance your cultural knowledge of Sydney; and help you explore facets of Sydney (read 'local secrets'). It includes practical updates when a bar closes or a hot new restaurant appears.
Your purchase will include regular future updates packed with more items of interest (the app is about the price of a cup of coffee - a superb, smooth Sydney coffee if you follow the suggestions here :))
