Getting Into the Outdoors in and around Sydney

There’s much to love about a trip to Sydney. Besides the great weather and awesome vibes, it’s also a place where you can do anything and everything! And this is especially true if you’re a person that loves spending time in the outdoors. In Sydney and the surrounding area, you’ll be able to indulge in recreational passion – whatever that might be – and try out a few new activities with the locals. Whether you’re a mountain person, beach lover, or love the slower side of being outdoors, you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Sydney area.

Strap on the Hiking Boots

If you think there’s no better feeling than waking up in the morning, slapping on those hiking boots, and then getting into the outdoors for a day of trekking, then you’re going to love your trip to Sydney. Within easy reach of the city are the Blue Mountains, one of the most picturesque parts of New South Wales. There are trails for all abilities, so whether you’re a seasoned veteran of the mountains or just want to see what all the fuss is about, make sure you’re spending a day hiking!

To the Water

Of course, it’s impossible to talk about Sydney without mentioning the water. There’s water right in the city, and then plenty of beautiful beaches within an easy driving distance of downtown. During your trip, you need to get involved with some water recreational activities! You can go kayaking right in Sydney, or you can do as the locals do and try your hand at surfing. There is a knack to it, we admit, but who cares if you’re not an expert surfer? It’s all about spending time outdoors and enjoying the good vibes.

A More Leisurely Stroll

Some people love the outdoors but don’t like the idea of working too hard. After all, this is supposed to be fun, right? If you like your recreation a little bit slower paced, then take a look a playing a round at one of the many Liverpool golf courses, located just a short drive from the city. There’s nothing better than playing a round of eighteen holes as the sun beats down!

Exploring the City

Of course, you don’t necessarily need to be doing anything overly active to enjoy the outdoors when you’re in Sydney. If you’re visiting when the weather is fine (which is to say, most times during the year), then you’ll be able to get a sense of the outdoors just by wandering the city on foot. Sydney is very connected to its surroundings, and as such there are plenty of green spaces and areas of natural beauty waiting to be explored. Strap on some comfortable shoes, and get exploring.

Summer Culture

Finally, what’s better than just sitting down in the outdoors, all the while being entertained? If you’re visiting during spring and summer, you’ll be able to enjoy the many film screenings, music concerts, and theatre shows that take place in the outdoors. Life doesn’t get much better!
