Have you ever been to Sydney? Regardless of your answer, there’s always a reason to revisit this amazing urban jungle and do and see things you never have before. If you’re a first-time visitor, you should use the time to check out the basics, but if you’re visiting again, you can have a themed trip and focus on just one thing – nature, culture, food or drinks, etc. Sydney and its surroundings have a lot to offer. There’s a reason why so many people come to visit and decide to stay – it’s urban heaven and you need to visit it at least one time in your life, which is actually hard because once you go Sydney, you never go back.
The first thing to do when you come to this amazing metropolis is take a walking tour. Get to know your surroundings. In order to truly feel the vibes of the city, you need to actually be inside it. You cannot get to know your environment from a bus or a train, you need to walk the streets to know them. Study the map of the city and the area around your hotel or any accommodation you’re staying at, walk around and find a landmark which will help you orient. Go and see all the famous sights in the area, Harbor Bridge, the Opera, walk around the harbor and parks, talk to the locals and have a great time.
As far as nature is concerned, there’s a wide variety of parks and nature resorts in Sydney and if the weather is nice, you can really seize the opportunity to enjoy a day in the sun. There are beautiful beaches in Sydney like Bondi Beach and the Northern Beaches. If you happen to be near these beaches, make sure to visit the striking Long Reef Golf Club as its breathtaking beachfront location will enable you to enjoy a wonderful view of the Central Coast.
Sydney Zoo is also a great place to be. Given that some animals like koalas and kangaroos are exotic for Europeans and people from the USA, this is a great chance to see these animals in person. There are also koala and kangaroo parks in Sydney that allow you to play with the animals and feed them. For instance, Featherdale Wildlife Park is an amazing place to see when it comes to this topic.
You can take a cruise in the harbor. It’s an opportunity to see the city from afar and admire it in all its glory. It’s also a good way to rest from your walking tour and still use the time you have left of the day. Of course, if you’re an enthusiast, you’ll want to seize every moment to explore the city instead of sitting in your hotel room watching TV or sleeping. You can enjoy a wonderful view of the Harbor Bridge and The Blue Mountains, and the sight of the breathtaking sandstone cliffs is guaranteed to amaze you, day or night.
Sydney is a city that has it all, you could set aside one whole week to explore the museums of Sydney. You can start from the National Museum, then go to Macleay Museum, where you’ll enrich your knowledge of natural history. If you’re into mummified bodies and other ancient peculiarities, the Nicholson Museum is the right place for you. On the other hand, if you’re the geeky type, the Powerhouse Museum is what you need to see. It’s interactive, as well as educational.
All in all, Sydney is the place to be, regardless of your traveling preferences. This urban jungle is so fascinating that you could spend months exploring it and still have new things waiting for you. The great thing is that the locals are extremely friendly and willing to help out with directions or suggestions on what to see and do around town, so all that’s left for you to do is pack your things and book your flight.
