Lol.
Funnily enough, I actually haven't been in and around Sydney for a few years, too busy seeing the world. So I reckon those that were there more recently are more informed to chime in.

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)?

 since you will be in town only a couple of nights , Id say MS to simply take the tarin into town (The Rocks Area/Circular Quay) and walk around and take in the Bridge and Opera House lit up.

 as for Sun you can take a ferry over to Manly and explore there, or to the Zoo (both have very nice views of the City) Do a GreyLine tour to Canberra (the Capital) or depending on the weather a train out to the Blue Mts (most likely this wont be good due to the weather but you never know), SYDs Grand Canyon

Did you check exactly how far the walk is from SPG or Hyatt to the nearest shul?  Might not be so bad to just walk shabbos day to a shul with a lunch. 
Or if you want to be by all 3 minyanim, leave before shabbos on public transportation to shul with money for the ride home.  Then you just need to walk back friday night, there shabbos morning, and stay there until MS when you have the money to take public transportation back to the hotel.

It's about 45 minutes from CBD to Bondi and not worth it in my opinion. People in Sydney are willing to have guests, you just gotta find them. Also, with all the money I'll be spending for the rest of my trip I'd like to take it easy for this weekend.

Smirk, can you e-mail that guy you told me to e-mail and say something like "Hey, I gave someone your email address. He needs a place to stay..." cuz he didn't respond to me and it's been a day.

Funny, i emailed him last week randomly and haven't received a response yet, did you ask Chicago people for his number? or maybe ask Aussiebochur to hunt it down

I'm laughing...

Smirk, I guess I'll our chicago connections but I can't imagine they have a number for him. Is there some sort of Sydney Jewish Listing? Can you PM me the spelling of his last name?
