We were so impressed with the Sydney Jewish museum. The way it explained the history of Judaism, and the contribution of the Jewish community in Australia was most informative. The Nazi persecution during the Second World War was very well documented and extremely moving.

Absolutely the best of its kind anywhere. Is a must visit during a visit to Sydney. Easy to get to, just take the train to Kings Cross, it is an easy walk from the train station.

This museum is relatively new and has a huge collection of photos, film clips, letters and memorabelia. Very well done and honors all that Australia did to aid the victims of the holocaust.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
