Not exactly the back-packer but not a luxury traveler either. Prefers to stick to the path but wanders of the beaten track on instinct. Read about my travels and experiences at Lyn, Life Explorer - http://arazlin.blogspot.com/
City Tours, Cultural Tours, Walking Tours, Night Tours, Sightseeing Tours
If you are in Sydney for 1 day, this is a must-do. Consider this tour as an "express introduction" to Sydney. Not only you get to see the must-sees of Sydney (e.g. Harbour Bridge and Opera House), you will also discover hidden gems unknown even to the locals. Also it is more fun than exploring on your own because your local guide will narrate the story and history behind each stop. Two different tours available - Sydney city (10:30am or 2:30pm) and The Rocks (6:30pm).
If you're heading towards Mrs Macquarie's chair, why not take the scenic route? You'll get fantastic views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
Beautiful views of Sydney Opera House & Harbour Bridge
Located in Newtown, Brewtown was initially known for cronuts. The cronuts have since evolved to brewnuts and cruffins (croissant + muffin). This place is also famous for it's cold brew (coffee) although I never tried it because I prefer my coffee hot.
You can never get enough of Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Get a set of pictures from a different angle - while cruising on water. Use the ferry to get to Taronga Zoo. Alternatively, hop off at Manly, grab lunch and then back on again to get to the city.
If you want the best view of Sydney city as your backdrop, this is the place to be! Walk towards the giraffes' enclosure. You'll need to see it to believe it. Can be covered in 3-4 hours but for best experience, stay longer.
Catch the fireworks on Saturday night. Not a Saturday night? Head there anyways, it is Darling Harbour after all!
Prawn and Chips flavoured ice-cream? Anything's possible here. Flavours change weekly (favourites tend to stay on tho). Watch how your order is prepared before gulping it down.
10 kilometres long of amazing coastal views that will make your friends jealous. You will also learn of the other beaches located along the way (if Bondi is too busy for you, you can opt for these alternatives). This walk is divided into several sections. If you cannot complete the whole walk, you can always opt for Bondi to Bronte (or other stops).
Deep fried Mars bars! Grab this sinful snack here.
