Five Top Places/Activities you Must See and Do in Sydney, Australia

 

Sydney is one of those cities where there is always something to do. From those who just stay for a few months, to those who will decide to stay longer, there are some activities and places that are a ‘must do’ for everyone.

  1. Bondi to Coogee to Bondi walk.

The Bondi to Coogee walk is one of the most enjoyable and easy activities to do in Sydney. It is a walk of 6 km (3.5 miles) where you can experience stunning views of the ocean, cliffs and rock pools. You can start in Bondi and finish in Coogee, or if you prefer, you can walk the path in reverse. I recommend you start in Coogee and finish in Bondi because when you arrive in Bondi, there are lot more things to do ( in particular places to eat!).

At Coogee beach, the walk starts behind the Pavilion at the end of the beach. Following the path, you will go through some of the most picturesque beaches in Sydney, such as Clovelly, Bronte and Tamarama. You will finish at the famous Bondi beach  and here there are plenty of choices for you to grab a cold beer or enjoy fish and chips, in one of the many restaurants on the beachfront.

  1. Darling Harbour.

Darling Harbour is one of those places that is very worthwhile to visit, both during the day and at night. By day, you can enjoy lunch in one of the amazing restaurants around the wharves, shopping in the shopping mall where you will find plenty of choices, or just enjoy an ice cream sitting on a bench while enjoying the views.

At night, Darling Harbour offers one of the most beautiful skylines views of the city. What makes this spot something special, are the colour lights mixed with the reflections of the harbour. I am sure after you visit Darling Harbour, you will want to return for another visit!

  1. BBQ on the beach.

When the temperature starts increasing, one the best things you can do in Sydney is to go to a BBQ on the beach. It is common to see a lot of groups of people holding a beer and enjoying the summer evenings around one of the many barbeque spots. The good thing is that all the barbeques are free and there is always a big number of them on almost all of beaches in and around Sydney.

Some of the best BBQ spots in Sydney are:

  • Bronte Park

Best place for holding a family barbeque with plenty of green space and easy access by public transport.

  • The Basin

It is the perfect site for camping surrounded by a beautiful national park on Pittwater.

  • Shelly Beach.

This lovely beach is next to Manly beach and offers one of the best locations for snorkelling and scuba diving as a bonus.
