What travelers to City Centre are saying

Too many things to do in Sydney. We travel abroad almost every other year. Sydney is ranked up there with the best cities in the world: Paris, London, etc. Food is good. People is friendly. Public transportation is awesome. Great great experience in Sydney!!! Airport and Immigration need improvement though!
