Top 5 Things to do in Sydney


Sydney’s has quite a unique landscape with the spectacular Blue Mountains, beautiful Sydney Harbour and seemingly endless sandy beaches. Whether you’re in town for a week or a weekend there is certainly no shortage of activities to keep any traveller on any budget occupied. The following list will provide anyone with a complete view of Sydney’s truly amazing landmarks and hotspots, which can be enjoyed by anyone.


5 – Just an hour and half out of the cities centre is Sydney’s Blue Mountains. The Blue Mountains offers some of the best views and scenery in New South Wales. Once there, a wide range of activities is available for both the adventurous and the romantic. Visit Australia’s wildlife park to see the locals in their natural habitat, horse ride through the canyons and take a cable car and see the famous Three Sister’s. A day trip or weekend here would certainly be worth the drive.


4 – Right in the heart of the city and on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour is the Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens. This beautiful garden setting is the perfect spot after a big days walking to grab a coffee from the café (located in the centre of the gardens) and people watch the afternoon away. Although in the middle of the city, the gardens offer a tranquil experience to end the day.


3 – A night in Sydney’s Kings Cross is truly a unique experience not seen anywhere else. Kings Cross has a dark yet well known history of underground gangs running illegal drug and prostitution rings. These days it is one of the hippest nightspots in Sydney, having a wide range of restaurants, nightclubs, bars and certainly no shortage of strip clubs. Although it is getting much safer it is not hard to imagine its seedy and tainted past.


2 – The world famous Bondi Beach is a must see for everyone, offering a huge range of activities. You can try your luck surfing or simply sit at one of the many restaurants and bars and be amazed by the scenery and buzz of activity going on around you. The beach in summer can get extremely busy but still quite easy to find a spot for you and your partner or family. Watch out for the lack of clothing worn on this beach if travelling with young children.


1 – Catching the Manly ferry from Circular Quay in the cities centre is truly the most breathtaking experience in Sydney. This ferry allows you to get the best views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House all the while cruising on the most beautiful harbour in the world. This is the best opportunity to take unspoilt photos of the city surrounding you. The views only get better once you arrive in Manly.
