Sydney is one of the world’s most famous Holiday destinations, with a stunning harbour and picturesque landmarks it’s not hard to see why this is the case. Aside from the Harbour, Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Sydney’s other attractions are not quite as well known, so let’s run through Sydney’s Best Tourist Attractions to help you in planning your next trip Downunder.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Together with the Sydney opera house the Sydney Harbour Bridge is what makes Sydney well Sydney. What’s great about this is they are within close proximity, so both of Sydney best attractions can be enjoyed on the same outing.
Tip: The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb is highly recommended for anyone not afraid of heights.
Sydney Opera House
The area around the Sydney Opera House is a great place to experience both the Opera house and views over to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We highly recommend visiting at around 5pm and staying until night to see the Opera House and Harbour Bridge under lights.
The Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, Ferry and Train terminals are located in the Circular Quay area, making the area very accessible and a great hub for journeys to other attractions.
Tip: The Opera bar (located between the harbour and the the opera house) is great to experience at sunset while enjoying a local beer or wine.
Taronga Zoo would have to be one of the world’s best zoos with large array of both Australian native and International animals. However what makes Taronga Zoo so special is that the zoo has spectacular views looking back at Sydney Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
The best way to get to Taronga Zoo is to catch a Ferry from Circular Quay across the harbour to Zoo
Darling Harbour was built in the lead up to the 2000 Sydney Olympics and houses some of Sydney’s best Bars Cafés and Restaurants, in addition other attractions to see here are the Chinese Gardens, Sydney Wildlife World and Sydney Aquarium
If want to see Sydney from a above Sydney tower is the place to visit, with an observation deck open to the public between 9am and 10:30 pm, this is a great experience for the whole family. At 305 m (1,001 ft) the Sydney Tower is Sydney’s tallest free standing structure and the second tallest in Australia.
Value for money wise this attraction is a little on the high side.
Bondi would have to be Sydney’s most famous beach, so a visit to Bondi is almost mandatory for any trip to Sydney.
Tip: Bondi has some great cafes and bars and restaurants, which are idea for picking up a bite to eat or late after catching a few waves.
To the north east of the Sydney CBD would have to be the best of Sydney’s two most famous beaches. Unlike Bondi Manley is the perfect beach for families, because of its shaded and grassed. For tourists the best way to get to Manley is by ferry from the Circular Quay ferry terminal
Sydney’s World Class Multicultural Restaurants and Food
Sydney’s multicultural Food and restaurants is to die for with cuisine from most counties on the planet, this is because of Sydney’s and Australia’s large multicultural society.
Tip: Try these suburbs or Sydney for some authentic multicultural food, Cabramatta for Vietnamese, China Town in Sydney’s CDB (Haymarket) for Chinese, and Leichhardt for Authentic Italian food. Each of these suburbs are easily accessible by Train.
The above attractions are just a few of the option available to you that are within an hour of Sydney’s CBD’s, further afield there many other options which we don’t have time to go over now.
