When people visit Sydney, they often think that the CBD area is the only trendy place to socialise when in town. This is simply not the case. While the city certainly offers up plenty of entertainment opportunities, the vast Western Suburbs district can actually offer up so much more variety.
Let’s take a look at why visitors and locals alike should consider venturing a little further west when looking for fun and entertainment in Sydney.
#1 – Prices Are Cheaper For the Most Part
Once you get out of the Sydney CBD and venture further afield, you’ll find the prices for things like dining out, alcoholic drinks and other entertainment is generally cheaper. This means you can have fun on a budget, or get more mileage out of your money.
Depending on where you go and what you’re doing, you may even save up to fifty percent on restaurant meals or a night out drinking with your friends.
#2 – There Are Many Social Clubs To Choose From
If you love social and entertainment clubs and are looking for a social club, Sydney has loads of options; particularly in the Western Suburbs. An example of an excellent and popular social club in Western Sydney is Dooleys Club. It’s a Lidcombe club that’s very centrally located.
You’ll discover some other great social clubs out west as well, so it’s just a matter of doing some research to locate a venue you like.
#3 – Parramatta Is Trendy For Nightlife
In some ways the city of Sydney really has two CBD districts. The first is obviously in the city of Sydney itself, while the second is trendy Parramatta in the Western Suburbs. If you are looking for fun nightlife and lots of variety, then Parramatta is the place to be.
If nightclubs are your thing, the Parramatta strip has quite a few options. There are also many cool bars to kick back in, or if you’d rather a coffee or other non-alcoholic beverage, Parramatta has a bustling cafe scene as well.
Along with partying, there are plenty of other entertainment options in and around Parramatta for people of all ages.
#4 – Sample Tasty Dishes From Many Different Cultures
The Western Suburbs of Sydney are very multicultural. For this reason, there are restaurants and takeaway food outlets that offer cuisine from places all across the globe. Your taste buds will be so spoilt for choice, you might find it hard to make a decision on where to eat.
There is also something to suit everyone’s budget, and loads of food even the kids will love to eat.
Whether you fancy some Lebanese food, cuisine from just about every Asian country, European dishes or even some good Aussie tucker, you’ll find everything on offer in the Western Suburbs.
#5 – Every Suburb Offers Something Different
With so many suburbs comprising Sydney’s West, you’ll discover that each one offers a unique entertainment or dining experience in one form or another. This also includes daytime activities. There is loads to see and do across such a vast area.
Getting around is no problem either, if you don’t have a car, as there are plenty of taxis, buses and trains networking all across the West.
#6 – Accommodation Is Abundant
Whether you plan to stay for a night or a week, there is accommodation everywhere in the Western Suburbs, and once again, you’ll find the prices more affordable than in the city centre.
