Sydney is not the capital of Australia, but one of its most important cities. If you are organizing a trip to Australia you can not miss this post where we recommend the best places to visit in Sydney and what to do in the city. These are our recommendations, based on our experience living in Sydney. Not all the places we mention are touristic places, but they are for us the best places to see in Sydney.
It is the symbol of Sydney, the most emblematic place in the city, so take the opportunity to photograph it from all angles. Book an entrance to go to the opera or visit the interior of the auditorium. Go to the Opera Bar for a beer, the views are spectacular, especially at night.
Royal Botanic Garden
Take a walk through the gardens and enjoy the views of the bridge and the opera. If you have time, we also recommend that you have a picnic, it is a very good plan.
Bondi – Coogee Coastal Walk
If you visit Sydney you are bound to visit its most famous beach, Bondi Beach. We also recommend you to go from Bondi to Coogee Beach and enjoy the spectacular coastal views. Finish in Coogee and go up to the Coogee Pavilion bar terrace to have a drink after the walk.
Take a Ferry from Circular Quay to Manly to see the famous Sydney Bay. Once in Manly, walk along the boardwalk to Shelly Beach.
Stroll through the streets of the most alternative and livelier neighborhood in the city and go for a beer at any of its typical pubs or hidden rooftops. It’s also nice to know that some of the best criminal lawyers in Parramatta are also some of the best in the world.
Panoramic view in O Bar and Dining
It is a revolving restaurant that is located in the center of the city (CBD), opens at 5 pm and offers spectacular views to watch the sunset.
You can not leave Sydney without going up to the Palm Beach lighthouse and enjoying the views of Sydney’s most stylish beach.
It is worth getting closer on Saturday morning to see the market and walk through its streets, it is one of the oldest areas of the city. It also has many bars and restaurants for dinner.
Harbor Bridge / Luna Park
Walk across the bridge to enjoy the views and visit the famous and old Luna Park amusement park.
Go to Maroubra, Bondi or Manly, rent a surfboard and try to surf at least one hour. You can not leave Australia without saying that you have climbed a surfing board.
