Gay Sydney






Answers » Sydney »Public Places » I will be in Austral...

I will be in Australia from March 3-10. I have several questions: 1) Any recommendations on where to stay in Sydney? Hotels, B&B, etc? 2) Should I spend all of my week in Sydney or are there other places I should visit such as Cairns/Barrier Reef? Is there enough time to to this in a week? 3) Any potential dangerous areas that should be avoided in Sydney? Any other recommendations and/or suggestions would be appreciated. My first time here, so I want to make the most of my visit. Thank you.

  • I wouldn't try to include Cairns in a 7 day trip - you'll spend much of the first week getting over the jet lag. If you're in Sydney for Mardi Gras there's enough going on in the city anyway - see www.mardigras.org.au Oxford Street is where most of the gay bars are but it's not a very pleasant area to stay in (IMHO). The Sydney Gaybourhood is Potts Point which has a number of hotels from backpackers to boutique and many gay owned restaurants, bars and shops.

  • My Gay travel agent booked me into the Cambridge Hotel. He says that it's in a Gay neighborhood. He should know since he was born there. I will be on the Atlantis cruise through NewZealand and Australia. We arrive in Sydney just in time for the Mardi Grad (March 2-7). David "special bottom" Long Beach, Caifornia, USA

  • If you can go to Germany down around Munich there is a lot to see there. Then go to Switzerland its beautiful there. I was stationed in Germany and was lucky enough to visit Berlin when the wall was up. Visited Switzerland in October and there was snow on the mountains and flowers still in bloom. Have a great trip enjoy. lee
