Of the 90 000 Jewish people living in Australia, nearly half reside in Sydney. A small number of Jewish convicts arrived in Australia with the First Fleet, while World War Two led to a large Jewish migration.

The Sydney Jewish Museum (148 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst) is an attraction that celebrates Australian's Jewish heritage and remembers the Holocaust. A combination of permanent and temporary displays explores Jewish life in Australia as well as the timeline of Judaism and the events that have impacted the religion.

Permanent exhibitions include Jewish Australian military history, a journey through Jewish culture and artefacts and memorabilia, such as the Holocaust collection.

The museum also offers guided tours on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from midday. The tours are led by volunteer guides, many of whom are Holocaust survivors. Guided tours take about forty five minutes.

The Sydney Jewish Museum is open from Sunday to Thursday from 10.00am until 4.00pm and on Friday from 10.00am until 2.00pm, and is closed on Saturdays and Jewish Holy Days. Admission is $10 for adults and $6 for children. Visitors get in for free on the first Sunday of the month.
