Okay, we need to have a chat about Chatswood

With its buzzy malls, multicultural restaurants, and high-rise buildings, Chatswood's got that big city vibe, but somehow it also manages to have a really laid-back feel about it too. Set in Sydney's North Shore area, the Concourse arts center gives Chatswood a massive injection of culture, and the district gets an extra dose of character thanks to its big Chinese, Korean, and Japanese communities. And the best bit? A Chatswood vacation rental means you're just a short hop from most of Sydney's major attractions, including Taronga Zoo, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and those glorious sandy beaches.

When it comes to cuisine, it's all choice in Chatswood

There are 2 things everyone knows about Chatswood—the wide range of shopping possibilities, and the amazing restaurant scene. And the district's multicultural makeup means that if Asian cuisine floats your boat, you won't have to venture far from your Chatswood vacation rental to find it. Despite the malls and high-rises, Chatswood's well-stocked with parks and green spaces, and some of Sydney's loveliest beaches are just a short drive away. Manly Beach is second only to Bondi in the fame stakes (and is much nicer), while tranquil Dee Why Beach is a bit of an insider tip.

Culture in Chatswood? At the Concourse, of course

When it comes to culture in Chatswood, everything revolves around the Concourse. This impressive multi-purpose arts center features a theater, a concert hall, an exhibition hall, and a library, plus eating and drinking venues, and an outdoor screen. Whatever your cultural poison, you'll find it at the Concourse. And for a peek into local history, the pocket-sized Willoughby Museum is just nearby. Of course, many vacationers will be using Chatswood as a base to explore Sydney itself. Popular areas like the Rocks and Darling Harbour are just a short ride away, while Chatswood's ideally located for a visit to Taronga Zoo.

If there's one thing we learned from Baz Luhrmann

If you want to know why Australians use sunscreen the way the Inuit use fur coats, a Chatswood vacation rental will give you your answer. There are two kinds of weather in Sydney—warm, and hot. Summers tend to be pretty humid too, making winter, spring, or fall better options if you wilt in the heat. The sun is also a lot stronger in Australia than in many other places, so cover up and slather on the sunscreen. Remember that the seasons are back to front here, so summer runs from December to February, and winter from June to August.

See sensational Sydney from sea to summit

Ask most people for Sydney's highlights, and sooner or later they'll start talking about the sandy beaches. From Bondi to Dee Why, the area's full of them, usually well attended by lifeguards and helicopter/boat patrols to keep the sharks away. Set on the Tasman Sea, Sydney is a coastal basin, and you'll notice water travel plays a big part in how people get around the city. But despite being on the coast, Sydney's also not far from the epic landscapes of the Blue Mountains. Hop on a train to Katoomba for wildlife watching, outdoor activities, and natural wonders like the "Three Sisters" rock formations.
