Sydney is one of the most popular areas in all of Australia, mainly because there’s so much to do there. It’s no wonder that people take weeks, even months worth of holiday in Australia and come to Sydney – there are so many exciting things you can fill your time with! If you’re planning on visiting Sydney, we’ve got some attractions and activities listed here that everyone must try:
Experience Aboriginal Culture
If you visit Sydney in November, you’ll be just in time to enjoy the Corroboree festival, that celebrates all aboriginal culture. Tours, attractions, and performances are available all over Sydney for you to immerse yourself in this culture. You might even enjoy some of the aboriginal workshops and markets available!
Check Out The Art Exhibitions
Sydney has a plethora of art galleries dotted around the city for you to enjoy. Sydney’s art scene shouldn’t be missed, so start off with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, the Ken Done gallery, and the S.H Ervin Gallery. There are loads more to choose from too!
See a World Class Performance
The Sydney Opera House has performance for everyone, with some of the most famous names in comedy, music, and theatre. Why not see the Australian Ballet’s version of Cinderella? Or perhaps Jimmy Carr is more your thing? You’ll find all kinds of word class performances at the opera house.
Eat Great Food
You could rock up pretty much anywhere in Sydney and enjoy some amazing food. There are plenty of Sydney chefs making their mark on the world, with award winning fine dining experiences to sink your teeth into. Great if you enjoy good food and good wine! Aria, Gastro Park, and Spice Temple are all highly recommended.
Hire a Boat at The Harbour
Sydney harbour is beautiful, offering all who come by amazing scenery and a historical journey. Sydney harbour boat hire is available for those who really want to see it in style, too! You can explore some of the following islands:
- Cockatoo island.
- Fort denison.
- Shark island.
- Goat island.
There’s even the option to try out glamping (glamorous camping) at Cockatoo island! Everything is sorted out for you, and you’ll love spending time in this beautiful area.
Enjoy a Nature Walk
Sydney is the place to be if you love walking. There are a million and 1 walking trails and tracks available for people who want to enjoy the great outdoors while holidaying here. Just a few walks that you can enjoy are:
- The Manly to Spit bridge scenic walk.
- The Bondi to Coogee coastal walk.
- The Sydney harbour circle walk.
You can even make up your own trail to enjoy the city at your leisure!
Sydney is the perfect place to go if you’re visiting Australia – you couldn’t possibly visit all of the cities with limited time (even people who live in Australia can’t do that!), so we recommend starting off with this cultured, exciting, not to mention beautiful city. There’s plenty more to do than what we’ve listed here too; zoos, parks, beaches, day trips, and more!
