    Kirribilli which is just on the northern side of the harbor bridge. Has the best of everything good old school architecture, some great views, though it is rather quiet as far as foot traffic goes....lots of tourists though around the base of the bridge. You can walk underneath the bridge from there and up to luna park also:P

    If you stay to areas where there are other tourists, you should be fine.
    Otherwise do not go out alone at night, this is not Singapore.

    You might as well pass me all your money and cameras.. save you the mugging.

    I stayed for 2 years whilst studying in Sydney 2 years back. I don't think it is a legend. Esp after seeing a classmate get mugged in broad daylight outside the International House in campus.

    well, it take common sense to know that you should avoid alleys or streets that are quiet and to look around and see if anyone following u or anyone suspcious in the place. This apply not only to Australia but anywhere in the world.

    it is not that bad, dun worry about it. just dun be too flashy and loud. and golden rule, always be aware of your surroundings and possible escape routes.

    sydney and melbourne is generally alright to walk around at night.

    and yes, the shopping centres and shops close real early, at around 5+pm local time. at aroudn 3.30pm local time, you will see a lot of them heading home.

    i do not think it's that safe to walk around late in sydney. you can try darling harbour or circular quay as it's more crowded with tourist at night. definitely not pubs area like oxford st late at night.

    I stay in Sydney for a few years. I think is generally an ok place.
    As long as you been to JB and know how its like? Then you will feel that Sydney is much a better place to be in.

    Even in SG, "Low Crime doesn't mean No Crime."
    Everywhere is the same, just be alert when you are outside.

    i have stayed in sydney for a few years as well. I do see a few people doing drugs on streets occasionally. mugging cases reported by my friends at least 3 cases. drunks throwing bottles and taunting while walking on the street and experience other encounters personally around my place as well.

    haha... yes these kind of cases happens everywhere occasionally even in SG.
    Sydney is not as bad as trust me.

    Just "Be alert when you are outside".


    North Sydney is a nice place too. Check out Kirribilli for some night shots. Will not regret. Cheers...
