Moore Park Hotel & Accommodation

The former site of Sydney Showgrounds (now at Homebush Bay, site of the Sydney Olympics) is only 3 km from the Sydney CBD. It's just south of chic Paddington, and includes places like Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney Football Stadium, Fox Studios and Centennial Parklands. CBD-bound Buses are regular. On a fine summer day you can sit in the SCG, sip a midstrength beer, lament the fun police and consider just how bloody far Australian cricket has sunk. Get Moore for your accommodation dollar.
