Not only is Sydney a beautiful destination to visit, but there is so much to see and do that we thought we’d share some Sydney’s highlights you can’t miss:
Check out our most popular vacations that include both Australia & New Zealand!
1 Sydney Opera House
As iconic as Big Ben or the Eiffel Tower, the Opera House is a must-see! You can opt for a tour to get an inside look into the building, which will give you a whole new appreciation and perspective on just how much work it took to create this architectural masterpiece.
2 Visit Manly Beach
The most visually stunning beach near Sydney, and quite possibly in the world. You can access this beach by ferry from Circular Quay (the district right on the water which includes the Opera House). There is something here for everyone, whether you’re looking for a good surf or snorkel session or just looking to relax and sunbathe on the beach.
3 Climb Sydney Harbor Bridge
An adventure that is worth it for the views. With a group of other travelers and a professional guide, you’ll learn a ton about the city’s history as well as the story behind the building of this iconic bridge.
4 Explore the Rocks District
Has an historic, older vibe compared to the modern feel of the rest of the city. Hidden alleyways lead to fantastic markets and colonial buildings and is a must visit while checking out the Opera House.
5 The Bondi to Coogee Walk
Make sure to bring your camera because this cliff-top coastal walk offers incredible views of the local beaches, cliffs and parks and has plenty of opportunities for swimming and surfing.
6 Enjoy the Blue Mountains
Accessible by car or train, make sure to visit the local town of Katoomba and take the world’s steepest railcar. Don’t miss the Three Sisters Lookout, which gives you a perfect scenic view of the mountains and plenty of photo opportunities.
7 Taronga Zoo
Again grabbing a spot on another “best of” list, this world-famous zoo is known as one of the best. It has something to offer for everyone and as a bonus, has incredible views of the downtown Sydney.
8 Attend an Australian Rugby Match
Go see The Wallabies play! Australians are very proud of their rugby and take it very seriously. Se for yourself what the hype’s about. (it is the equivalent of Americans and football)
