Australia as a whole is grand in nearly every aspect. From the Great Barrier Reef to the Outback to all the cities scattered around the coastline, Australia is a dream vacation for many, despite the high prices. One of the more popular Australian destinations is easily the city of Sydney. This large and bustling city is home to art galleries, museums, shops, dining options, fantastic accommodations, tours, excursions and much, much more. But due to the vast amount of things to do and see, you might find yourself wondering where to even begin. To help you out, here are some fun and exciting options to look into that will not only show you the best of Sydney, but the beautiful world that exists right outside of the city limits.

Go on a tour

A fantastic way to see pretty much whatever you’d like, local tours are a fun way to view a bunch of interesting things all at once. Because the area around Sydney is so diverse and offers a large array of different natural environments to take in, you’ll find that picking a tour that suits you the best is easy peasy. One great way to plan a day tour is to go through Blue Mountains Tour Sydney where you’ll find a few tour options available including an Aboriginal tour and a Jenolan caves day tour.

The Rocks

Labeled as a must do by many, a visit to The Rocks is much more than a visit to a single attraction. In fact, here you’ll find a district filled to the brim with lots of different things to do and see. Some of the main features include the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Rocks Discovery Museum, the Endota Day Spa and the Cadmans Cottage. In addition, you’ll find The Rocks Markets to be worth every second, especially if you visit on a Friday. During this day you’ll find lots of different food vendors offering everything from lamb kebads to barbecued salmon. If you decide to instead visit during the weekend, you’ll still find lots of great food alongside more than 200 stalls selling everything from clothes to trinkets. Because there is so much to do here and lots to see, you’ll easily find yourself spending a day strolling around.

Go to the beach

Most of us love a good beach and luckily, Sydney is home to many great choices. From Coogie to Bondi to Manly, you’ll find not only white sand beaches to enjoy and relax on with a good book, but lots of water sports to partake in as well. Though the beaches themselves are free, you may find yourself paying for other things such as parking (or a ferry ride), food, drinks and water sport rentals. Some popular beach activities include people watching, surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking and dining.

Sydney is a one stop city for all your traveling needs. Here you’ll find sports, beaches, educational programs and museums alongside tours and excursions that take you straight into nature. Though it’s hard to plan a bad trip here, the attractions listed above help to make your Sydney visit even better.
