In the cosmopolitan city of Sydney, it’s impossible to be bored; regardless of whether you prefer sports, culture, art, fine cuisine or nature, you’ll be able to find something to keep you entertained in this city. In this article, we have compiled a collection of Travelup customers’ top attractions in Sydney.
Sydney Harbour Bridge is the perfect place to start exploring the city; you can opt for a formal cruise around the waters here, or simply hop on a ferry for a more casual excursion, and take in the beautiful sights of the city and the bridge itself. You can of course, walk on the bridge too; a stroll along it will take you from Luna Park, to Kirribilli, to The Rocks. Pier One, location close to Circular Quay, is usually best for a leisurely walk, whilst Milsons Point is better if you want a more invigorating outdoor experience.
Whilst Bondi Beach is a favourite with many Travelup clients, Palm Beach is the perfect choice for those who prefer a more peaceful beach visit. This is where many of the scenes for the famous Australian soap opera Home & Away have been filmed and is a spot around which many Sydney residents choose to retire, as it is such as calm, quiet and beautiful spot. Take a dip in the warm waters, enjoy a picnic or simply take a snooze under the hot sun!
If you love nature, then a trip to the Royal Botanical Gardens is a must. Just a short walk from the Sydney Opera House with views of the harbour from the hilltops, and the large exotic trees provide some wonderfully cool shade during the hot afternoons. There are a number of themed areas within this area, including the Herb Garden, the Oriental Garden and Palm Grove, and the plants housed here are extremely rare and beautiful.
Travelup reviews of Sydney almost always mention the Australian Museum; this building houses a huge collection of anthropological and natural history artefacts. Each exhibit is displayed thematically – the Aboriginal display is by far the most popular, and is considered by many experts to be one of the best of its kind in the world. The museum also takes a keen interest in the biodiversity and natural environment of Australia, and aims to educate the public about the cultures and natural resources of the country.
