Sydney’s Western Suburbs are home to vibrant multicultural communities, historical sites and family-friendly attractions. Here’s where to stay in style when exploring out west. 

Crowne Plaza Sydney Burwood  

The Inner West suburb of Burwood, a 30-minute drive from central Sydney, is home to both the five-star Crowne Plaza Sydney Burwood and a thriving Asian foodie scene. The 90-room Crowne Plaza has a striking facade, with windows jutting out at all angles, while inside the muted palette of the spacious rooms complements the pale marble bathrooms. Head up to the Mediterranean-inspired rooftop Skye Bar for sunset drinks, before dining on prime cuts of Australian beef and lamb prepared in wood-fired and charcoal ovens at the Onyx Grill.

For an Asian-inspired snack or something more substantial, check out the southern end of Burwood Road, the main thoroughfare through the shopping district. Here you’ll find No Fail, an indie tea shop that concocts offbeat bubble and iced teas such as watermelon yoghurt and ‘carbon oolong’. Then head to Burwood Chinatown, a slick alleyway development on Burwood Road near Railway Parade that’s home to more than two dozen hawker-style eateries offering plenty of options for dinner. Or for Korean fried chicken, seek out Chir Chir, a three-minute walk away from Burwood Chinatown on Belmore Street.  

The William Inglis Hotel 

Whether you come for one of the many scheduled horse-racing events at Warwick Farm Racecourse or want a secluded stay away from it all during the week, make yourself at home at The William Inglis Hotel at Warwick Farm, a 40-minute drive from the city centre. This boutique hotel, a member of Sofitel’s M Gallery collection, was inspired by part-owners William Inglis & Son’s revered horseracing history. Luxurious equine-themed rooms overlook the surrounding Riverside Stables, and each is named after a winning Inglis family horse. Grab a pre-bottled negroni by The Everleigh Bottling Co. from the mini bar and take in the sights of the racecourse below.  

For some downtime relaxation treats, order a poolside cocktail as you laze by the 20-metre rooftop pool or book into the decadent Inglis Day Spa. Qualified therapists are ready to ease away the stresses of your week with a luxurious menu of beauty and wellness treatments. You may opt for the Inglis Signature facial, which brightens and smooths using selenite crystals and serums, or choose a couple’s massage to unwind and relax with your partner.

Skye Suites Parramatta  

Sydney's second major city centre, and the second oldest city in Australia, Parramatta is the historic heart of Western Sydney. There are UNESCO World Heritage-listed colonial sites to explore, as well as a thriving multicultural food and cultural scene. 

Make the most of a stay here by checking in to the five-star Skye Suites Parramatta in the city centre. It’s styled as an urban resort, with the decor in the studios and suites influenced by Japanese minimalism. You can loiter in the outdoor infinity pool, which is bordered by manicured gardens and a pool deck, or hit the streets to explore the area.

Grab a pre-dinner drink at Nick & Nora’s Parramatta, a rooftop bar styled like a New York City penthouse. Then head to the family-run Kouzina Greco for Greek food with a modern twist, made with locally sourced sustainable produce.  

Hills Lodge Grand Mercure 

In the leafy Hills District, a 35-minute drive northwest of the city centre, you’ll find the Hills Lodge Grand Mercure. This mock Tudor boutique hotel sits within pretty landscaped gardens, with plenty of shaded outdoor seated areas and an outdoor pool amid the manicured hedges.  

The Lodge suites are roomy and have open-plan kitchenettes with plenty of bench space, making them a great base for families. And it’s a short drive, or around a 20-minute walk, to the Museums Discovery Centre, a collaboration between Sydney’s Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences, the Australian Museum and Sydney Living Museums. Here you can check out objects from these state museum collections, including scientific specimens and equipment used by Antarctic explorers. The Museums Discovery Centre is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 4pm.
