Home to the iconic Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia’s most famous city is more than just famous landmarks. Think glittering bars and sun-blazed beaches on your Sydney holidays.
Things to Do in Sydney
- At 250 metres high, Sydney Tower Eye offers panoramic vistas of the city. There’s also a Skywalk for the braver travellers.
- Try a Tella Ball Shake at Foodcraft Espresso. These Nutella-filled doughnuts served in Nutella milkshakes are featured on numerous Instagram accounts.
- The famous waves of Bondi Beach make it something of a mecca for surfers. Beginners can get a lesson at Let’s Go Surfing.
- Lying on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour, Taronga Zoo houses both Australian and exotic wildlife. Even the ferry ride across offers fantastic snapshots of the city.
Best Time to Visit
Mar-May: The weather is warm, but humidity is low. Sydney's summertime is absolutely loaded with festivals, while whale-watching season runs from May to November. Pleasant temperatures make it a good year-round destination, although snow is not uncommon in the Blue Mountains during the winter.
Drop by the city in January for Sydney Festival. This three-week arts extravaganza features everything from burlesque circus to Shakespearean theatre to various international acts.
Witness Sydney become illuminated with colourful, changing light displays at Vivid Sydney which is held around late May / early June. Make sure you get a photo of the Sydney Opera House, it usually has the biggest exhibitions.
Why We Love It“Sydney and its northern beaches are probably my favourite spots in Australia, even if you don’t surf it is great fun to watch all the surfers and kite surfers.”
