Sydney is one of the coolest cities in the world. From the beach to a cosmopolitan center it has it all. When I first visited Sydney I feel in love with everything the city had to offer. You could easily spend months and not be done exploring. From Coastal walks to climbing bridges Sydney is calling for adventure.
Top Things to do in Sydney
Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb
I did the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and was in awe of the view. While this is price, if it fits in your budget it is a once in the lifetime experience. You can find tickets for the Sydney Bridge climb on Get Your Guide.
Bondi Icebergs Pool
Bondi Icebergs Pool is an iconic Sydney landmark. Seen best from above this is the perfect place to unwind and cool off. A day pass will set you back only $7 so it is a great budget friendly activity.
Sydney Opera House
Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the sailboat-inspired structure has more than one million tiles on its four roof shells and six theater and music venues with top-notch acoustics. You can catch a tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site or even take a backstage tour reserved for artists and celebrities.
One of my favorite things to do is a Sydney Harbor cruise. You can see many of the amazing sites from the water. There are many different types of cruises but one of my favorite and the most affordable one only costs about $14 and you can find it here.
The rocks gets its name from the sandstone rocks that line Sydney Harbour. The neighborhood is as cool as good as it is quaint. There are a ton of pubs, galleries and restaurants. Whether you visit in the day or night you are sure to find something to do.
Bondi Beach is a trademark Sydney landmark. This famous beach is the perfect place to lounge or surf. I learned to surf at this very beach. The waves can be rough so make sure to take a lesson to be safe.
Diamond Bay Reserve
Part of the coastal walk Diamond Bay Reserve is a stunning park. With crystal clear waters this also makes a great spot to whale watch.
Opening on 4 October 1935, Sydney’s Luna Park is a rare surviving amusement park featuring fantasy architecture in the Art Deco style of the 1930s. The concept is based on the success of the first Luna Park which opened on Coney Island, New York in 1903.
