Don't just visit Sydney, step inside it. Climb the Harbour Bridge, take in 360 degree views atop Sydney tower, take a jet boat ride around the harbour, swim with sharks in Manly - there are endless adventures to be had while exploring this sunkissed city. Or, if you prefer something a little less adrenaline pumping, simply take a walk. You can explore the history of Sydney with a stroll through the Rocks, take a hike through Sydney's heritage-listed Royal National Park, or enjoy the spectacular cliff top views on the Rose Bay to Watson's Bay walk.
The weather in Sydney creates a perfect canvas for outdoor events. There are music festivals, food gatherings, sporting events and various outdoor entertainment options. Events are commonplace all year round with the city in overdrive during the Sydney Festival in January, and again during Vivid Sydney, a celebration of light, music and ideas, during the winter months. Sydney also hosts one of the world's largest events, the Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.
A panel of UK food critics & travel writers recently named Sydney as the 3rd best gastronomic destination in the world, and Sydneysiders love their food. Whether it’s dining at restaurants set up by international chefs like Jamie Oliver, lazy picnic lunches with prawns in the park, or browsing local produce at one of the many local food markets, opportunities for foodies are everywhere. Take some time out from the tourist trail with a dive into Sydney's cafe culture, or if you can get in early with a booking (months in advance), Peter Gilmore's Quay restaurant is awe-inspiring.
Sydneysiders love the outdoors and they live their life surrounded by water. Beach fun can be had from the north to south, boating and water-skiing on the waters in the west, and a harbour through the centre of the city offers various opportunities for enjoyment. Get familiar with the city by taking a day cruise around the harbour stopping at must-see locations like Taronga Zoo, Luna Park, Watson's Bay and Darling Harbour. Head to Bondi Beach, lay down your towel and watch the beautiful people go by.
Few zoos in the world can boast of a position like Sydney's Taronga Zoo. Settled right on the harbour's edge, the zoo has one of the best views in Sydney. Opened in 1916, the zoo houses many Aussie favourites as well as various international exhibits. The Roar & Snore experience allows visitors to camp overnight and wake with the animals overlooking one of the world's great harbours.
