Sydney, Australia, a destination for sand, sun and fun. From beautiful beaches to the Sydney Opera house, these are the six top-rated tourist destinations that you need to check out during your visit Down Under.
The Sydney Opera house
The Sydney Opera House is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, opened in 1973 as a way to help ‘enlighten a community.’ To this day, the Opera House serves as a meeting place to be entertained and enlightened by great artists and performances. They are open daily for tours from 9 am to 5 pm, so make sure this is at the top of your list for your visit to Sidney.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge
The Harbour Bridge was constructed in 1932 and connects North and South Shores of the harbor. We encourage you to take a drive on the bridge (or a walk across it) to see the spectacular water views from its peak. For the daring souls among us, you can book an adventure of a lifetime and scale the 135-meter tall bridge as part of a climbing excursion (this is not for the faint of heart), this tour is especially beautiful in the evening.
A Harbour Cruise
If you want to relax and enjoy the views, consider booking a Harbour Cruise. During the winter months, whales may be present, so a migration cruise is in order. The rest of the year, indulge in a two-hour coffee-break cruise where you can sit back, relax and see all the Sydney Harbour has to offer.
Royal Botanic Garden
If water is not your thing, consider checking out the Royal Botanic Gardens. Just minutes from the Sydney Opera House, this beautiful garden boasts exquisite landscapes of native plants, flowers and trees. Consider spending several hours browsing these beautiful gardens, or sitting on a bench and taking in the sunshine. Pack your sunscreen.
The Sydney Tower Eye
For the best view of downtown Sydney and the waterfront, the Sydney Tower Eye is where you need to be. From a viewpoint of 309-meters, you will have a 365 view of the harbor and the surrounding cityscape. For the most daring, consider stepping out on the glass-bottomed skywalk. After you see the view, check out the 4D movie that plays daily.
No visit to Sydney is complete without seeing the beaches. The well-known Bondi Beach is within the city limits and is a must-see on your visit. It features a fantastic surf and cafe scene that will keep you busy for hours. If you want to try surfing, then consider visiting the beaches at Collaroy, Dee Why or Narrabeen. While a lot of people want to be fair skinned, black people bleaching their skin is unheard of here in this wonderful country!
I hope to see you soon Down Under Mate!
