So why visit Sydney?
Well let’s start by exploring the free things to do in Sydney!
In the centre of Sydney there is a wonderful park called the Botanical Gardens which links nicely to the leafy suburb of Paddington a few miles away. Sydney is a city alive with wildlife. Twirling lorikeets, cacophonous cockatoos and all the bugs you could run from. If you want to experience this wondrous collection of wildlife at first hand the best place to go is the Botanical Gardens in the heart of the city. There are fabulous views of the city, the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. What’s more, this chilled experience is free. If you want to get away from it all, yet still feel part of the city, drift over to this lovely suburb and have a meal at the Royal Hotel. A rooftop terrace will provide you with comprehensive views of the city skyline; a serene place to while away the twilight with a glass of Aussie chardonnay.
More reasons to visit Sydney!
You must visit Bondi Beach. It’s one of the most famous stretch of sand in the world. This glorious 1-km long sweep of golden sand, with rugged Ben Buckler at its northern end and the Bondi Icebergs to the south, is Sydney’s favorite playground, packed with swimmers, and surfers from all over the world.
Of course the Sydney Opera House is destination not to be missed. The Opera House’s magnificent harbor side location, stunning architecture and excellent program of events make it Sydney’s number one destination. The modern masterpiece reflects the genius of its 1966 architect, Jorn Ultzon. In 1999, Ultzon agreed to prepare a guide to design principles for future changes to the building. This was welcome news for all who marvel at his masterpiece and for the four million visitors to the site each year.
After visiting the Opera House you must make to see Sydney Harbour. It is the most beautiful harbour in the world; it took the Parramatta and Lane Cover Rivers thousands of years to carve it from the sandstone. Well protected from off-shore winds, the harbour is also remarkably deep in parts. From its working docklands to its pristine and secluded beaches, this harbour is a natural asset that most cities can only dream of. Over the last 200 years the harbour has seen vast real estate developments, now comprising a lively array of apartment buildings and large residences, each vying for vantage points of the gorgeous harbour views and bustling maritime life.
Your visit wouldn’t be complete with seeing the Amazing animals that live in Australia. Taronga Zoo occupies a spectacular setting amide 28 ha (75 acres) of landscaped bushland overlooking the harbour. Just above the wharf is the Sky Safari, which carries visitors up the hill, over the enclosures and terraced slopes to the lovely Edwardian Entrance Pavilion and Information Centre. The centre provides tour information and brochures describing the zoo’s 380 resident species and 2,200 individual animals. Many enclosures recreate natural habitats such as the Australian Walkabout, which enables visitors to actually experience the animals’ original environments. Finally, magical views complement the enjoyable ferry ride returning to Circular Quay.
Last but not least of the many great places to see while visiting Sydney is the Powerhouse Museum. One of Sydney’s most distinguished and popular cultural institutions, the Powerhouse Museum has an extraordinary array of treasures across decorative arts and design, science, technology, space, transport and social history. A superb series of temporary exhibitions complements the range of inspiring permanent galleries.
