    Sydney is undoubtedly most famous for its world-famous attractions, with the bright white Sydney Opera House and the enormous Sydney Harbour Bridge.

However, if you want a more up close and personal visit, you can opt to enjoy a live concert in the Sydney Opera House’s interior. Or climb up the largest steel arch bridge in the entire world to not just enjoy the bridge but see the entire region of Sydney in one go!

  • Surf the Waves of Bondi Beach

    If the city life isn’t for you, why not head on a half an hour tram ride to enjoy a day at the beach! Bondi Beach is one of the country’s most famous surf spots, so popular it even has its own reality tv show. You can opt to sunbake along the soft sands, splash in the shallow shores, or head out to the outer region to ride the massive waves this beach is famous for! There are hundreds of cafes and restaurants lining the surrounding streets of the beach, so you can refuel with an ocean view after your day at Bondi!

  • Boogie the Night Away

    Sydney is renowned for its style, with the city’s restaurants, bars, and clubs all decked out in colourful lights, flowers, and delicious cocktails. Start at one of the swanky restaurants for a fine dining experience, before heading to one of the rooftop or beachfront bars to enjoy the sunset disappearing over the ocean horizon. After this, you can enjoy a boogie with the locals and finish the night off at one of the city’s most popular club spots!

  • Go on a Day Trip

    You don’t have to stay within the city borders to enjoy a day in Sydney. As many of the outer region’s highlights a great way to spend a day. Visit the lush bushland of the Blue Mountains and see exceptional views of both the mountain range and the city beyond. Or enjoy the pristine coastal area of Port Stephens, where you can ride on a camel or spot the local whales and dolphins.
