Australia is one of my favorite countries in the world to travel to. Sydney, as the most popular city, is often the city most folks go to for their first experience of Australia. Taking that into account, I thought it would be helpful to share my top five things to do in Sydney. If you plan well, you could do them all in 80 hours like I did in 2010, or, spread them out, and enjoy them over a longer visit.
Five Things To Do in Sydney: Take the Sydney Ferry to Manly
Five Things To Do in Sydney: Visit the Sydney Opera House
Five Things To Do in Sydney: The Rocks Friday Foodie Market
The larger events are even more awesome, like Vino Paradiso
Five Things To Do in Sydney: The Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour
Five Things To Do in Sydney: Paddy’s Market
Invariably you will want some sort of souvenir from your trip, perhaps its a boomerang, a t-shirt, or a stuffed koala, well, Paddy’s Market may just be your place!
Sydney is an excellent city for a visit. While I only identified five things to do in Sydney, there are still a ton more awesome things to do. Bondi Beach–and they have a weekend market at least sometimes–and so much more is available. Sydney isn’t my favorite city in Sydney–Melbourne is–but there are just so many awesome things to see, some of which are serious bucket list items, like the Sydney Opera House.
