For most people, a trip to Sydney Australia is a trip of a lifetime. There are so many things to see and do that one might wonder where to start. These 10 sights are the among the most popular.
1. Sydney Opera House
Of all the things to do in Sydney Australia, the Sydney Opera House is probably the most famous. The design was a contest winner in 1956, and since then, the building has been iconic and synonymous in the city.
2. Royal National Park
This is a beautiful area containing beautiful waterfalls, a famous so-called “wedding cake rock” made of white rock, figure 8 shaped pools and many other attractions. The full hike around the park takes two days, but you can jump in and out as you like.
3. Bondi’s Iceberg Club
This club has a saltwater pool, which is unique, and offers a number of other fun activities such as a gym and sauna.
4. Gordon’s Bay
Snorkeling is a popular passtime in this part of the ocean. Cuttlefish, sea urchins and starfish are just some of the things you can see if you go here.
5. Taronga Zoo
If you’ve never see a komodo dragon, now’s your chance. The Taronga Zoo also has a great view of the harbour, so it’s a great spot for a family picnic lunch.
6. Spice Alley
If you love Asian food but you have never been to Asia, take advantage of Sydney’s proximity to the area and head over to Kensington Street. That’s the area where you can find so-called Spice Alley. Largely known for the authentic Singaporean food, there are also places to sample Malaysian and Chinese food. The odors and tastes here are something to experience.
7. Sydney Harbour Bridge
To get what is perhaps the best view of the entire harbor, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and walking across it is your best bet. Tickets cost a couple hundred dollars, but it is worth it for the breathtaking view.
8. Whiteley’s Garden in Lavender Bay
A storybook garden right on the harbor with a view of the bridge, this garden was created by a widow who wanted to remember her husband. There are herbs, flowers, kookaburras, parrots and a variety of other wildlife and plants.
9. Manly Ferry
The harbor harbors so many of the famous Sydney sights, and being able to be out in the water to experience all of them can be fun. Taking the Manly Ferry will give you and your family a chance to be right in the center of it all.
10. Bondi Beach
For surfers, Bondi beach is one of the top destination spots in all the world. The waves that come rolling in are enormous, making them a favorite of anyone who likes to wade out on the waters or just watch the brave folks who do.
These are some of the top things to do in Sydney Australia, but there are many more. Make a plan for your visit so that you don’t miss a single thing.
