Sydney is one of the most famous tourist attraction in the world. Every year thousands of tourist visit Sydney. From visiting the famous ocean pool to kayaking on the harbour to taking lunch in the famous underground Restaurant.
Explore The Rocks
The Rocks is the oldest part of Sydney. It was torn down in the 1970s for modern high rises, but conservation action got it preserved.
I love hitting the bars at night, wandering the harbor promenade, and heading to the Sydney Observatory Hill Park for a good view of the city.
Pink sunset on the beach in Sydney
Sydney is specially very warm and sunny almost all of the year. The city is famous for its strong beach culture. Several people as well as locals flock to the famous beaches on the weekends (and several weekdays for that matter).
From Manly and Palm Beach in the north to the famous Bondi and Coogee in the south, Sydney has a beach for everybody.
All of the beaches are easy to get to via car or public transportation and there are a lot of surf shops and restaurants around the beaches to pass your time.
My favorite beaches are Manly (wide and beautiful) and Bronte (small and quiet).
Sydney Botanical Gardens
Sydney Royal Botanical garden date back to 1810 and is located over a sprawling 30 hectare Campus. There were several guided ride available which one could take easily for complete refreshment.
We seriously enjoyed the calm and serenity it offers and found it a ideal place to have your picnic.
Harbor Bridge in Syndey
The Sydney Harbour Bridge was built in 1932 as a government employment project during the Great Depression. Its steel frame has become an iconic symbol of the city.
While there are several tours available that climb the bridge and are kind of expensive ($158 AUD), it’s free to walk or bike across it for panoramic views of the harbor and Opera House.
Sydney Opera House
Your visit to Sydney is incomplete if you didn’t take a visit to Sydney Opera house. This Architectural Masterpiece was designed Mr. John Utzon. It was opened on 1973.
The Opera House consists of 1000 rooms and powered by more than 15000 light bulbs. The building was listed as an UNESCO heritage site on 2007.
Blue Mountains of Australia
Over the millennia, the ancient sandstone of the national park was weathered into gorges lined by steep cliffs and separated by narrow ridges. The park is free to visit and also you may get there from Sydney, which takes 90 minutes by train. In the event you’d like to hike further afield, it’s best to stay overnight!
