    Experience Sydney: what to see and do

    Sydney is a world-class city. It's so big, grand and pretty that most people from outside of Australia think is the capital! Sydney is all those things, and more! Wander the harbour, pass through parks, hit the beach, climb the bridge, catch a show at the Opera House and more!

    Sydney essentials

    Harbour Bridge: There’s a lot of way to see this bridge, you can: drive across it, rollerblade along it, climb over it, sail under it… It’s a major point in the city and so many ways to experience it. We definitely recommend the climbing one though, unless you’re afraid of heights.

    Royal Botanic Garden: Established in 1816, the Royal Botanic Garden started out as a mere vegetable garden. Today it’s a reminder of the country’s colony days, but a nice one. Stop and smell the roses!

    Bondi Beach: You can’t get much more “Sydney” than this. Bondi is one of the most famous beaches in the world, where ocean and land collide, creating foaming swells that attract surfers from every corner of the globe.

    Accommodation in Sydney

    Sydney has it all when it comes to hotels and accommodation. Booking early is the key to finding a good deal. If you’re on a budget, consider staying at a place a bit further away from the Harbour and on the outskirts of the city centre.
