I've been in Sydney now for two years and there's heaps that I love but there's also some things I don't love. So let's discuss those in more detail. Number 1 is a pro. Sydney has a kick-ass lifestyle. There is a lot to see and do here, so you'll never be bored. never be bored. There's always a show to see, there's always a restaurant to eat at, a bar to experience. An endless list of attractions to do. You've got the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Luna Park, Cockatoo Island,. The world's largest IMAX theatre, Darling Harbour. It just goes on and on and on. Number 2 is a con. With a kick-ass lifestyle it also comes with a hefty price tag as well. It's super expensive to live here in Sydney. At the moment we're going through a crazy property frenzy. Median house prices are a million dollars. Who has that kind of funds - I don't know. And, in terms of rent, it's also expensive. So your paying $450-550 per week for a no frills type of apartment, and that's a one bedroom apartment by the way. In terms of if you want to go out and attractions. A ticket per person to go to the movies is about $20pp. If your going out for drinks and you want a cocktail is average $15-17 per cocktail. Beers and wine is around the $10 mark. Number 3 is a pro. Sydney is a stunning city. It is located on the harbour therefore it has stunning views. In terms of the weather it's quiet moderate. The humidity isn't as bad as Queensland, so your hair sits better and your skin doesn't breakout as much. And in the winter, yeah it's a little cold but it's not as cold as Melbourne. We've got some of the world's best beaches. In the east you have Bondi, also got Coogee. In the north you've go the likes of Palm Beach where they film Home & Away. Manly, Freshwater and in the south you have Cronulla and Marouba. My 4th and final item is a con. It is a nightmare to get around in Sydney. Obviously when I first came here that was the biggest shock. Sydney is a bit stuck in the past with its transport. It relies heavily on buses and cars and therefore brings congestion. They do also have trains and ferries. Trains there a bit inflexible, there not like the tube (London), so that's obviously a negative. They've also got ferries but again, there services are quiet inflexible and expensive. So just say your wanting to travel to Manly from Circular Quay which is a very popular service. By ferry its about $7.18 (Opal card), whereas if you catch the bus it's $4.50. Overall there my pros and cons for living in Sydney.
