Destinations / Oceania

Traveling to Australia for business anytime soon? Bring the family! As one of the largest cities in Australia and capital of New South Wales, Sydney is a hub for travelers of all ages and interests.

While known for its famous Sydney Opera House along the picturesque waterfront, Sydney has a lot more to offer by way of entertainment and attractions for the family.

Head to Harbour Ridge for some scenery and make a pit stop at the nearby Royal Botanic Garden, or hike Sydney Tower’s outdoor platform with the fearless kids. The incredible Skywalk offers unbeatable 360-degree panoramic views of the city and surrounding area. Of course, you know all of this — you just need a place to stay that delivers for both business and pleasure.

Check out the New Vibe Hotel, located in the heart of North Sydney. New Vibe Hotel is positioned perfectly for business meets pleasure. With easy access to public transportation and walkability to local shops, restaurants and viewpoints, New Vibe boasts a mix of casual fun and swanky design. 

Head to the rooftop pool to relax, swim and enjoy the incredible view of the city. Take advantage of the high-function rooms to work a bit between sightseeing as guests receive free WiFi access. Enjoy access to the hotel’s pristine fitness facility, including another great view, and a mix of on-site dining for family or clients.

With four high-tech meeting spaces available for guests, you can host a meeting or attend a conference in the morning before meeting up with the family for lunch.

At about twice the size and guest capacity, the Swissôtel in Sydney offers a whole room just for the kids. Between the 369 guestrooms, modern design, luxury details and exquisite views, this stay is ideal for leisure, business or both. Enjoy a breakfast buffet with the family before a meeting in one of the conference facilities or meet up with the kids later for a high tea experience at Crossroads Bar.

Relax in the resort spa, hit the gym or enjoy the outdoor heated pool with the kids. The location allows easy access to waterfront attractions and dining with the family or the city center for meetings with business clients.

With ample work space and technical capabilities, as well as family-friendly fun and attractions, Sydney can lend well to a business trip turned family vacation.
