Hi, my name is Lauren and Sydney Moving Guide (http://sydneymovingguide.com/) is my blog. I LOVE being an expat in Sydney but am fed up with all the misinformed and useless expat guides, not only giving bad advice to those making the move to Sydney, but also charging for it! So I created Sydney Moving Guide, written by expats for expats.

    Hello there :D

    First of all i want to thank you for your HUGE effort you have done to share us those insightful and amazing information about Australia :)

    I was wondering if you can give me an advice about something related ..
    I am planning to take vacation with my mom and sister this August for like 2 weeks in one of the cities in Oz and i can't make my mind up between Melbourne and Sydney... I am short on time and i want them to have some fun , shopping ,swimming ,sight seeing ,dining and so forth...

    Both cities are wonderful but which one will it be the most fun and easier for cruising around is my question.

    For my self i am actually interested in moving to Australia as soon as i am done with uni here. so it will be a good chance for me too to do some research as well ..

    Yeah and that's about it :)) Appreciate your advice and help
    Hope this finds you well

    I'd definitely go with Sydney if it's your first time in Aus. You'll get to see the Harbour bridge and Opera House which are Australia's two biggest sites. It's easy to get around and the beaches such as the famous Bondi Beach are only 30 Minute bus ride out of the city. Melbourne is a cool city but there's way more touristy things to do in Sydney. I think Sydney is a more beautiful city although Melbourne is probably easier to live in as people are friendlier etc. Hope that helps!
