7 Awesome Things To do In Sydney

19 August 2015

Sydney is arguably the most iconic city in Australia and there are heaps of things to see and do in the city - so it can be hard to figure out where to get started!

So to help you along here’s 7 of our favourite things to see and do in Sydney…

Sydney Opera House

Well lets face it this was always going to be the top of the list! The Sydney Opera House is the postcard image of Australia with it’s distinctive outline and epic positioning at the forefront of Sydney Harbour.
Have a wonder around the outside, grab a beer in the sunshine at the bar, take a tour of the inside or even catch a show…no matter what your budget or style you’ll be able to enjoy it.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Alongside the Opera House Sydney Harbour Bridge is another famous landmark you cant really miss! Drive over it, sail under it, ascend one of the towers or go all out and tackle the world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb for some epic photos and views of the city.

Bondi Beach

Easily the most famous beach in Australia - you’ll have probably seen a lot of it on TV…whether its vets, tattoo artists or the famous lifeguard crew!
Head over there for a day of beach goodness, maybe some surfing and some incredible coastal walks too.
If you’re feeling brave head for a dip in the Bondi Icebergs swimming pool…

Sydney Wild life Zoo and Sydney Aquarium

If you fancy getting up close and personal with some of Australia's incredible wildlife then the Sydney Wildlife Zoo and Sydney Aquarium are a solid day out.
Chill with the Kangaroos, hold a koala and even come face to to face with a saltwater crocodile!
Grab a combo pass for the best value or check out one of the multi attraction passes to save even more!

Sydney Tower and Skywalk

For the best views of the city a trip to the top of Sydney Tower is a must - especially if you head up there for sunset and can see the nightlife of Sydney flicker through the twilight.
If the views alone aren't enough then get involved in the Skywalk experience complete with glass floor!

Manly Beach

From Circular Quay you can grab the ferry across to the beautiful Manly Beach.
Not only will you have an epic day of beach fun but you’ll also cruise through Sydney Harbour and get an alternative view of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge…bargain!

Darling Harbour

The perfect spot for some afternoon cocktails and a waterfront dinning experience - Darling Harbour has had a face lift in recent years and is looking fabulous! Walk along the harbour front from Circular Quay or detour from the CBD to enjoy the outdoor spaces, bars, restaurants and atmosphere - well worth it!
