    Railway Square YHA hostel is within walking distance to most of Sydney's major attractions. Visit museums, get up close to stars, sharks or snakes at Darling Harbour's Madame Tussauds, Sea Life and Wild Life attractions. Saunter down to the historic Rocks district, climb the Harbour Bridge, visit the Sydney Opera House and Botanic Gardens, then enjoy a cruise by harbour ferry, catamaran or jet boat. Shop and cafe/bar hop in the trendy inner city suburb of Surry Hills, just behind Central Station.


    Be seen at nearby Scubar, underground backpacker bar. Mix with the locals at one of Haymarket, Darlinghurst or Surry Hills' bars. Hit Oxford Street, or stroll down to Chinatown to soak up the atmosphere of the night markets (Fridays in summer). Try tapas in the Spanish Quarter (Corner George and Liverpool Streets). Sip cocktails by the water at Cockle Bay.
