So, you know you're going to get views, history and plenty of places to booze with the suits. But what makes Sydney great are its fabulous little burgs.
Been to Walsh Bay? You should. The onetime theatre-and-dance hub is now a fully fledged entertainment venue that not only boasts the work of the Sydney Theatre Company and Sydney Dance Company, but great food at diners such as Cafe Sopra and live music at the Bar at the end of the Wharf.
Visited Chinatown lately? From yum cha in the morning to supper at Golden Century, it's still pumping out Australia's most awesome Cantonese.
And speaking of food, the gastronomic heart of the city might just be at the Quay nowadays, where Neil Perry, Guillaume Brahimi, Matt Moran and Peter Gilmore face off nightly.
And if you're after something more low-key, the lanes between our skyscrapers now have some of the coolest small bars in the country. It's an exciting time to be in the centre of town.
