7 things to do in Sydney
Planning your time will give you more hours in the day and will make sure that you don’t miss any of the good stuff. It’s unlikely you’ll get to see everything in one visit, but you can try and see as much as possible.
Let’s check out the top 7 things to do in Sydney, to help you with your planning.
Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Watch a Performance at the Sydney Opera House
The Opera House was designed by Jorn Utzon, a Danish architect, and dates back to 1956. You can also take a tour around the Opera House, which runs several times per day, and take around on hour.
Enjoy the Seaside Vibe at Luna Park
Surf (or Watch) at Bondi Beach
Many people don’t know, but Bondi Beach actually has a huge promenade you can wander along, with ice cream stalls and a real seaside vibe too – it’s not all about surfing! Head to the northern side of the beach and you’ll find families rock-pooling and enjoying the sun. Of course, many people head to Bondi Beach to either surf, or watch the surfers in action, and no matter what the time of year, you’ll be able to do that with ease!
Explore Culture at New South Wales Art Gallery
The Art Gallery of NSW is a great place for art lovers, and those who want to learn more about the culture of the area through various artistic forms. Here you’ll find artworks from all over Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and the Pacific, as well as Aboriginal art too. There are regular screenings of local films and you can also dine at the gallery, with an award-winning restaurant on site.
Check online in terms of availability of new exhibitions, as there are often temporary exhibits on that you might not want to miss.
Chill out at the Royal Botanic Gardens
The Royal Botanic Gardens are famous in Sydney, and the other major perk is that they’re totally free to enter! This is the ideal spot for chilling out in the sun, enjoying a little laid-back time, and taking in the view. The gardens are close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House and is a huge span of 30 hectares. You can take a guided tour, where you will learn about the Gadigal people who once called this site home, as well as the countless species of plants on offer.
As a side note, the Royal Botanic Gardens are also a great spot to catch the Sydney sunset!
