Sydney's got great public transport.
As far as places to eat it's been quite a few years & I know places opened & closed...

ChabadLand a/k/a Sydney,AU  is a residental community where you will need Home Hospitality unless you dont mind mind walking over an hour to DownTown. (I call it CBLand since basically thats who makes up the vast majority of the local community with numerous shuls, unlike MEL).

So are there really no Hyatt/SPG hotels that are within a couple miles of shuls in SYD?

I'll start to tackle my own question.
It looks like "Chabad of the City and CBD" is just a 1.1 mile walk to the Park Hyatt Sydney.

But that Chabad house doesn't appear to have a website or any info.  Does anyone know anything about it? Do they have a minyan on shabbos?

 there is a Main Syn its next to SOTP (Sheraton on the Park) Id guess a 20-25 min walk from the PH, only most of those who attend drive to shul as they live in BB (Bondi Beach area). So Id say its closer to 90 mins BB to PH

Id be very surprised if Chabad has anything going on DT as no Jews live there and they reach most out in Bondi

Ah well.
Looks like Bondi is a 4-5 mile walk.  Definitely more than I would care to.

5- Shabbos is Home hospitality , I stayed by a friend and will do so again in Aug. There is a shul DT but no meals and most of those who come drive so if having a Shomer Shabbos minyan is important theres nothing DT

Home hospitality meaning I just post here and someone offers to have me? That would be awesome. I need the weekend of July 30th-Aug 1st. Seriously.

 I will miss U by a week, I would ask my friend but they are suppose to still be in Israel that Shabbos themselves.

 I dont think there are many people from SYD on this site. So unless you PM aussie and ask if he could set you up , Id say the best thing to do is contact 1 of the Chabad centers in Bondi Beach area and inquire of them if theres a Hotel walkable to them or if they could make other arrangements

Ok, still no place to stay in Sydney, but I'm working on it.

Who can recommend an activity for Moitzei Shabbos and Sunday (full day)?

You want a Moitzei Shabbos activity as opposed to a Saturday night activity  ;), correct?
