Sydney Harbour YHA and The Big Dig Archaeology Education Centre has been awarded a Jury Commendation for Innovation, one of the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation.
The award recognises newly-built structures which demonstrate outstanding standards for contemporary architectural design which is well-integrated into history contexts. Sydney Harbour YHA is sympathetically situated on a site of great historical significance, above the remnants of houses, pubs and laneways dating back to the earliest days of the Australian colony.
“I heard about this hotel from a friend who loves the place and stayed on that recommendation. I had a brilliant stay and could not have asked for more. It’s a charming little hotel with a nice little restaurant and bar downstairs. The staff are very warm and friendly and found myself talking to them quite often. The rooms are very clean as well.”
