Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time lover of Australia, Sydney sightseeing has something for everyone to enjoy. Not only does it have some of the most popular beaches such as Bondi, but the city also has a variety of museums, gardens, and other landmarks to explore. Adventure-seekers can climb the Harbour Bridge while those who love to relax can sunbathe on the sand. From beautiful beaches to towering bridges, these are some of the best places to see during your Sydney vacation.
White sand stretches in all directions and cliffs line the water’s edge at Bondi Beach. Not only is it the most famous beach in Australia, but it’s also one of the most popular Sydney sightseeing locales. Whether you’re in the mood for a surf or a dip in the waves, Bondi has a little something for everyone. Don’t feel like doing anything at all? Relax and sunbathe on the sand while listening to the sounds of the waves. You’ll also find yourself within walking distance from some great local restaurants and beachside cafes. There’s even a variety of hotels lining Bondi Beach should you wish to stay near the waves while sightseeing around Sydney. We recommend Hotel Ravesis for perfect views of the beach, wrap-around terraces, a late night club, and more.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Stretching across the Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge measures nearly 1,200 meters across the water. The steel arch bridge carries vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles while boasting views of the Opera House and surrounding city. Also known as “The Coathanger” because of its arching architecture, the Harbour Bridge first opened in 1932. The bridge is a popular sight in movies as well as a popular destination for visitors and locals alike. Looking for a little more adventure on your Sydney vacation? BridgeClimb allows you to climb to the top of the bridge and take in one of the most breathtaking views in the whole city. You can climb during both day and night – or even host a climb for a celebratory event such as a marriage or birthday!
