Located on the South Eastern tip of Australia, Sydney is one of the most popular cities to visit, with hundreds of thousands of tourists flocking to its sunny climate every year.
With probably one of the world’s most recognisable harbours high on everyone’s to do list, you will be spoilt for choice what to visit first.
The Sydney Opera House is a masterpiece of 20th Century architecture and is one of the most visited buildings in Australia. If this amazing building intrigues you, then you should definitely sign up for a two hour behind-the scenes tour which starts off with a cooked breakfast in The Green Room. Before taking in a show, dining at Peter Gilmore’s restaurant, Bennelong needs to be towards the top of your list of things to do. With magnificent views from your table of the harbour, this makes for an unforgettable dining experience.
Sydney Harbour Bridge offers the chance to climb to the summit and enjoy truly amazing panoramic views, this is especially amazing watching the sun rise or set with trips to the top at dawn and twilight. If this isn’t your thing, you are free to cross the bridge on foot or bicycle which also offers brilliant views of this famous harbour.
For something different, why not spend a night on Cockatoo Island where you are able to camp or ‘glamp’ waking up to the amazing Sydney Harbour view. Barbecue and breakfast packs can be ordered if you don’t want to cook and hot showers are available for campers. This is definitely one for the bucket-list.
There are many famous restaurants dotted around the city to suit every budget. They range from upmarket eateries to casual Chinese buffets with Mr Wong’s legendary Peking duck on offer.
Whether you want a laid back or active holiday, then Sydney is the place for you.
