The parking did cost extra, the mantra had a deal with a secure parking 2 buildings down and provided a card to use at the facility and they charged direct to our account. We easily walked the city / darling harbour from here but used the car for bondi and other day trips. If you are hiring a car, remember to take your toll pass, to save calling up when you get home or charges from hire company.

Yeah I was thinking about leaving the car at newcastle with family then catching the train to syd. But then I thought about all our luggage esp. with a baby... And not having a car to do day trips.
I dislike Sydney so much but dp keeps mentioning he wants to go to the aquarium!!

I'm just looking at Airbnb now. So many options to choose from!
ETA: Does anyone know what other suburbs of Syd are worth staying in?

You could stay out of Sydney and catch a train in to the aquarium/ferry to zoo if you want to go there. I live further out and we catch the train in a lot which takes us an hour.
You could stay in Manly, that is only a short trip to Sydney and you will be close to the beach if you want to go there.

If you use Airbnb, just go for a place with a few good review (at least 5).
It is such a better quality and price than a hotel! You won't be disappointed

Most of the places on airbnb close to the city didn't even look like they'd be big enough to put up a cot in lol...
I think I might look to stay a little bit further outside the city but still close enough that it doesn't take long to get there. And probably a bit cheaper too.
There are so many places to stay in syd it's ridiculous!! lol
Can anyone suggest some decent suburbs? Or where to avoid?

Am I right that the places on airbnb are other peoples houses that you stay in? While they are there?

some places are like a bed and breakfast, so yes you rent one bedroom. other places you rent the whole house/apartment.
we are renting a lovely 2 bedrooms apartment for Xmas in Tokyo for a fraction of the price of a small hotel room :-)
