Cheap domestic flights are easy to come by if you search at least three months in advance. From Melbourne, catch flights onboard low cost carriers like JetStar Air, Tiger Airways and V Australia. Qantas Airways also operates this route but flights will likely be more expensive.
You’ll find that flights to Sydney never really dip or dive in price but if you book far enough in advance then you're likely to find a good price. Three months before your travel dates is ideal. Summer tends to be the most popular time to visit, around the Christmas holidays.
Direct flights to Sydney from Melbourne take 1 hour 35 minutes.
Sydney is a world-class city. It's so big, grand and pretty that most people from outside of Australia think is the capital! Sydney is all those things, and more! Wander the harbour, pass through parks, hit the beach, climb the bridge, catch a show at the Opera House and more!
Harbour Bridge: There’s a lot of way to see this bridge, you can: drive across it, rollerblade along it, climb over it, sail under it… It’s a major point in the city and so many ways to experience it. We definitely recommend the climbing one though, unless you’re afraid of heights.
Royal Botanic Garden: Established in 1816, the Royal Botanic Garden started out as a mere vegetable garden. Today it’s a reminder of the country’s colony days, but a nice one. Stop and smell the roses!
Bondi Beach: You can’t get much more “Sydney” than this. Bondi is one of the most famous beaches in the world, where ocean and land collide, creating foaming swells that attract surfers from every corner of the globe.

Sydney has it all when it comes to hotels and accommodation. Booking early is the key to finding a good deal. If you’re on a budget, consider staying at a place a bit further away from the Harbour and on the outskirts of the city centre.
