Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

I've always been attracted to older men - particularly if they are clean shaven, chubby and silver-haired like my partner. I am Editor of GrayGay.com - the place for mature gay men, their admirers and the GrayGay Guide to places that welcome them worldwide. It includes the latest news plus extensive reviewed links such as dating sites, books, movies, videos plus travel and dating advice. Originally from London, UK I moved to Australia to live with my partner and we now live in Sydney where we have a great view of the harbour. I've travelled extensively for business and pleasure - mainly around Europe but also to the USA, Asia and Africa.

  • 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.

  • For a start, take a look at the Tripadvisor.com list of Things to Do in Sydney and cross reference with Fodors/Time Out. The gay scene (such as it is) is on a strip of Oxford Street between Taylor Square and Hyde Park. However, like everywhere else, the number of people who go to bars is much less than it used to be (thanks to Grindr). Crown Street heading West from Oxford Street is good place to find local restaurants. Staying We live in the Gayborhood of Potts Point which has lots of Cafe's to hang out and people watch - also a few designer shops to buy overpriced knick-knacks. Be aware that between Potts Point and Taylor Square is a 1/2 mile strip of Darlinghurst Road known as Kings Cross which is full of girlie bars and (often) drunken men and women having fights - especially late at weekends. We never go there much after 9pm if we can help it. Once you are into Macleay Street you've entered fairy land - or "Poofs Point" - although there are no gay bars as such, the bars and restaurants are mostly mixed and many are gay owned. We highly recommend Zinc Cafe at 77 Macleay St. There are a few hotels in Potts Point ranging from boutique (Simpsons) to budget (The Devere) to mid-price (Macleay Apartments - nice views of the harbour/bridge). While Potts Point it's not in the middle of the city, it's quite easy to get there by bus in Macleay Street or train from Kings Cross station and the hop on/off tour buses pass through the area too. It's about a 30 min walk through the Botanical Gardens to the CBD. Sights The harbour is the main asset of Sydney and if you don't mind heights there's the bridge climb to consider. Otherwise get the ferry to Manly for an inexpensive trip across the harbour. The ferry to Watsons Bay which has great views back to the city a nice fish restaurant (Doyles), a pub, a fish kiosk and you can walk to The Gap for a view of the Southern Ocean or to Lady Jane nude beach for other views!. The Rocks is a "tourist destination" with a number of bars, restaurants and boutique shops but not particularly gay. Wollooomooloo (between Potts Point and the CBD) contains the Naval Base of Garden Island but also a converted wharf full of (mainly) expensive restaurants. Sports Australians are sports mad and there are a huge number of gay sports clubs - (see www.teamsydney.com.au) who welcome visitors. Most parks have running trails and/or outdoor exercise equipment. If you want to sail on the harbour, the CYCA in Rushcutters Bay organises Wednesday evening racing from 6pm. Get there at 5pm and put your name on the "crew available" board and someone will take you out for a casual race. Shopping You can catch the bus to Bondi Beach (the North end of the beach is gayish), via Bondi Junction where there's a large Westfield shopping centre (there's another smaller Westfield in the city centre). The Queen Victoria Building in the CBD is a beautiful restored building - formerly a market, it's now full of designer shops. Getting Around The train system is mainly underground and is quite good in the city centre - although it's easy to get lost in the maze of access tunnels. Buses are frequent and there are also hop-on/off tourist buses. Taxis are frequent except when they change shift at 3pm. Public transport planner at http://www.131500.com.au. You can rent bicycles from Woolies Wheels in Oxford Street and others listed here (including Electric Bikes as Sydney has many hills) http://sydneycycleways.net/maps-and-tools/bike-hire-in-sydney. There are bicycle lanes in some areas and you can take them on ferries and off-peak trains for free. Tipping Australians pay their staff wages so they don't tip! 10% is considered generous. Tips - Carry photo ID with you - some clubs (and a few pubs) require it for entry. Members clubs allow visitors to enter free if you live further than 5Km away. - You can buy bus passes from most corner shops and supermarkets
