Make sure your visit to Sydney is special by checking into a great hotel. There are many amazing and affordable accommodation options in the city, one of them being Morgan's Boutique Hotel. Just a short walk from King's Cross Station in Darlinghurst, this hotel is a great base for exploring the wider Sydney area. Guests can choose from hotel rooms or self-contained apartments with kitchen facilities. One of the best features of this hotel, though, is the rooftop terrace which offers incredible views of Sydney Harbour.

Alternatively, for a truly unique experience, book a stay at Roar and Snore. Located in Taronga Zoo, this unusual 'hotel' allows guests to stay in safari-style tents within the zoo itself, in a camp that overlooks Sydney harbour. This once-in-a-lifetime experience includes camping activities, fire-side feasts and close encounters with the zoo's animals. This would make an unforgettable choice for families.

For a historic hotel, choose the Rendezvous Hotel Sydney The Rocks. Housed within a colonial mansion, this handsome hotel does justice to its former history and offers a relaxing and elegant environment for guests to escape to, in one of the city's premier neighbourhoods. The hotel is ideally placed for all of the cultural attractions in the surrounding area and offers airport drop-off and pickup. 

Sydney Beach for November

November is the perfect time to sample Sydney's laidback beach lifestyle. One of the most famous beaches in Sydney, and for good reason, too, is Bondi Beach. A short distance from the city centre and easily accessed by public transport, this hugely popular spot has something to offer everyone, from surfing and swimming to sunbathing. There's also a range of fantastic bars and eateries nearby, many of which offer terraces overlooking the ocean.

Serious surfers should head north to Narrabeen Beach, which became a National Surfing Reserve in 2009, thanks to its long stretches of sea and strong breaks. The beach is heavilly patrolled by a number of lifesaving clubs, and there are a range of facilities at hand which make it a great place for family day trips and outings. 

Bars and Restaurants

Sydney is reputed for its fabulous culinary scene, with amazing restaurants, cafés and bars to suit every taste and budget.

If you're visiting Bondi Beach and are looking somewhere to dine, don't miss North Bondi Fish. Run by celebrity chef Matt Moran, this iconic beach-side restaurant serves up some of Sydney's freshest catches, such as fish and chips, swordfish and prawn tacos. Take a seat outside and enjoy the extraordinary views over your dinner.

For a taste of New York's Little Italy right in the heart of Sydney, Frankie's Pizza won't disappoint. Located in the Central Business District, this cheerful trattoria serves pizzas and a large selection of drinks in a cool, retro-inspired setting complete with black and white floor tiles and pinball machines. Slices here are just $5, making it a great budget-friendly option for dinner.

Finally, wine connoisseurs should head to Surrey Hills, where they'll find The Winery. This stylish bar has over sixty wines to choose from, and does justice to Australia's reputation as one of the world's leading centres for wine production. There's also a snack menu to choose from if you're feeling peckish. 

Things to do in Sydney in November

Take a trip with Sydney HeliTours for an experience like no other. Operating out of the city's main airport, the tours provide full panoramic views of Sydney's main sights, from the city centre and harbour to the beaches of Bondi, Coogee and Manly Cove. Hovering above ground at 500 feet, this makes for a truly unforgettable excursion.

Boat enthusiasts should take a look at the Sydney Heritage Fleet, which comprises a collection of vintage vessels, the largest of its kind in Australia. Situated near The Rocks, the company offer cruises and guided tours of the Tall Ship James Craig. This is recommended as an alternative way of exploring the city's history and seagoing heritage. 

Get away from the noise and crowds by escaping to Centennial Park, which sits at the southeastern edge of the city. A great place for walks, leisure activities, or simply lazing about with a picnic, this is one of the city's favourite green spaces among locals and it's home to a variety of flora and fauna.
