Our apartment is located just across a park from the Parramatta River, so the centre of Sydney is a leisurely 25 minute ferry trip away (see the ferry wharf in the photo). There is a King size bed in the Master bedroom, and Queen beds in the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. We own a cat that can be accommodated elsewhere if need be but she has been inside the apartment so a cat hair allergy may be a problem.
It is convenient to have a car to get around Sydney - it is a large, sprawling city and there are many recommended day trips. You are welcome to use ours but we only have stick shift cars and like many British colonies, we drive on the left hand side of the road. None of our previous exchange partners have had trouble adjusting - but you should be warned. Having said that, our area does have public transport nearby (buses, trains and ferries) so driving is not necessary to get around if you are at all concerned.
For golf enthusiasts, there are 3 golf courses within 5 mins drive of our home.
From our home you can walk to a supermarket, restaurants, cafes and there is a very popular riverside walk that can be accessed across the park from our home. Our suburb, Breakfast Point is part of an urban renewal project that has seen a number of old riverside industrial areas regenerated into modern suburbs. It is a very safe, quiet area within in easy access to most tourist's needs. Our apartment is a 7 minute walk from the ferry wharf, there are buses at the end of the street and an excellent train service from Strathfield Station that is a 10 minute drive away. You might like to take a ferry up river to the population centre of Sydney, Parramatta where there are some great restaurants. Or you can stop halfway there and explore the site of the Sydney 2000 Olympics. For bird lovers there are resident pelicans, cockatoos, kookaburras and rosellas. Friendly neighbours mean you should always feel welcome. We have had many exchanges over the years and our guests always leave happy.
