A Quick Guide to Sydney’s Major Business Districts

Sydney Central Business District (CBD)

Sydney is Australia’s largest and arguably, the most famous city. It’s home to the iconic Palm Beach (aka Summer Bay) and of course, Bondi Beach. But Sydney is much more than beaches, it’s iconic buildings include the World famous Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and of the Sydney Tower Eye. Jam-packed among all of this, you’ll find a bustling nightlife scene, world-class restaurants and of course, some of the top businesses in the world. Sydney’s CBD stretches from Central Station all the way to the Circular Quay and The Rocks which all come with stunning views of  Sydney Harbour, a landmark that is considered to be one of the most photographed locations in the world. 

Sydney’s CBD is a great place to find work and much like London’s city or New York’s Manhattan, this city is on the career path target list of millions of aspiring business folk, entrepreneurs, trade workers, teachers and healthcare professionals. A booming business district provides a great pathway for all levels of skilled migrants to see the dream of a succesful career and good work-life balance come true. 

Key streets in Sydney CBD include; George Street, Pitt Street, Clarence Street, Martin Place, The Core, Western Corridor, Midtown and South Precinct.

Chatswood Business District

Chatswood is located 8km from the Sydney CBD. It is a prominent business hub in the district. The top of the line transportation system in Chatswood is one of the other reasons for its prominence as a business center. Victoria Avenue spreads from the north to the south of Chatswood and is the core of the transportation system. Chatswood is mostly renowned as a major shopping destination, attracting close to 15 million shoppers annually, which of course brings plenty of employment opportunities. Chatswood’s major shopping centres are Chatswood Chase and Westfield Chatswood, as well the surrounding streets and shops. Chatswood also has plenty of entertainment spots such as restaurants, hotels, cafes, and bars and is a popular place to live. 

Eastern Suburbs Business District

The Eastern Suburbs in Sydney is a developing hub for Media Agencies, Public Relations Agencies, Digital Marketing Agencies, and entrepreneurs who are seeking co-working spaces, quirky offices, meeting rooms with the world’s best coffee and the opportunity to network with like-minded creative types. Surry Hills is Sydney’s answer to London’s Soho or Manchester’s MediaCity and the place where great campaigns are made. If you’re looking for a career opportunity in the media world, make sure you add the Eastern Suburbs to your research list.

  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
    – Graeme and family, Australia
  • We have all settled in well in Oz. We have now been here a year and loving it. Thanks.
    – Simon & Gillian Vamplew, Australia

    – Lynn McBride & Family, Australia
  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know. There are so many companies offering the same kind of service, it’s hard to know who to trust and we had OE recommended by a friend and I would recommend to anyone without a second thought.
    – Sam Whittam, New Zealand
  • Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so pleased and there have been a few tears this morning, including my family. Phew! Superbly professional.
    – Karen Johnson, Canada
  • Thanks so much for all of your help and support with my application. Everyone there has been so responsive every time we’ve contacted you, it really does make a difference. I should refer our estate agent back in Edinburgh to you for some tips on customer communication! And we certainly would recommend to anyone thinking of making the move to contact the team at OE.
