Travel Tips For Sydney Australia

Travel Tips For Sydney Australia

It can be easy to fly into a major city anywhere in the world, touch upon some of its delights and make your way out again. Sydney is no different, on the surface, it has some of the most iconic buildings in Australian history, but if you dig a little deeper you will soon find that the capital of New South Wales has a lot more to offer. Whether you want to get around by public transport or make use of the likes of Bayswater Car Rentals to drive the region instead, here are some ideas for you.

The City

First of all, we should tick off some of the major landmarks that Sydney has to offer. Of course, you should pay a visit to the world-famous Sydney Opera House where not only will you see the beautiful structure itself, but also have a great view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge – which if you want, you can arrange to walk over. However, Sydney itself has many other delights one of which is the less discussed but still popular Darling Harbour. Here you will find the aquarium set amongst plenty of restaurants and in December a free fireworks show every Saturday.

Nature

Like most of Australia, Sydney is awash with natural life so much so that even in the heart of its city there is the stunning botanical gardens where you will find all sorts of fauna and flora as well as different birds such as cockatoos. Further out of the main city you should make your way into the Blue Mountains for one of the most picturesque views you are ever going to experience. This world heritage area is named as such because of the blue hue that the mountains get when viewed at from a distance. While in the Blue Mountains keep an eye out for some natural landmarks such as the Three Sisters.

Depending on the time of year you are visiting Sydney you might be able to get out on the water from one the ferry terminals to see whales frolicking nearby. Sydney’s waters are home to humpback whales as well as other species of cetaceans and marine life.

Beach

If the water is where you want to head then the beach won’t be far behind. Like the majority of the major cities in Australia, Sydney was built not too far from the coastline and therefore has great access to beaches. One of the most iconic stops for you to make when in search of the sand and sea is Bondi Beach. This part of New South Wales is famous for its one-kilometer stretch of golden sand and its waves that are perfect for surfers from all corners of the world. In addition to Bondi, there are many other beaches including Marley Beach to the south of Sydney, one of eleven beaches in the Royal National Park territory.
