As the Land Down Under, Sydney has many new things to offer its visitors. You may come from all across the other side of the world, but a trip to this beautiful place will certainly be worth your while.
Guide to Visiting Sydney
When it comes to Sydney, perhaps nothing could be more iconic than the Sydney Opera House. Located in Bennelong Point, this mammoth of a structure is known to be the gem of modern architecture. This multi-venue building is one of the busiest performing arts centre in the world, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
You can schedule a tour of the Sydney Opera House, take in a few shows, have a picnic in the famous Royal Botanic Garden, and afterwards treat yourself to dinner at one of the many fine restaurants in Circular Quay. The restaurants here are world class and boast some of the freshest and most delicious seafood dishes in Australia.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Not far from the Opera House, you will see one of the most photographed landmarks in Sydney, the Sydney Harbor Bridge. This bridge may not be the longest, but it is the largest steel arch bridge in the world. It connects Sydney Central Business District (BCBD) and North Shore, and carries vehicular, rail, pedestrian and cycle pathways.
Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb
More than accommodating traffic, this bridge is famous for its Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb. It is said to be the ultimate Sydney experience. The reward of the 2.5 to 3.5 hour climb to the top is a magnificent view of Sydney. You can book one of the six scheduled climbs with the professional climber. If you are up for it, the Dawn Climb, which can start as early as 3:25 AM, will give you the unforgettable experience of the sun rising over the great city of Sydney
Bondi Beach is one of the more famous beaches in the world and is found in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. The golden sand and distinct blue green waters of this beach is frequented by avid beach goers and surfers alike. Quaint shops, local galleries and charming cafes in the surrounding vicinity make it the perfect vacation spot for anyone.
Aside from the beach, Bondi is known for many events, depending on what time of the year you come. You can enjoy a showing of tasteful short films during January’s Flickerfest, the City to Surf Fun Run in August, Kite Flying Festival of the Winds on September, and of course, the much anticipated Sculptures by the Sea on October/November.
