    Sydney Harbour Bridge

    97 reviews

    One of the sister icons of Sydney Harbor, the Harbour Bridge offers its own adventures. You can pay a load of money to strap yourself to a harness and climb it, which I've heard is well worth it - or do as I did, and take the free walk across the car-level path, which offers great views of the harbor ...

    Bondi Beach

    99 reviews

    Probably the most famous beach in Sydney, and probably also the most crowded. This is where people go to lay on the beach and enjoy their days off.

    Manly Beach

    66 reviews

    I lived and worked in manly for 8 months. I absolutely love this place there's just something about the manly charm that keeps bringing people back. With water surrounding it on both sides and a palm lined corso full of cafes shops and everything else you need manly surely is one of the best beach side locations in Australia.

    Darling Harbour & Haymarket

    65 reviews

    Good place to bring your family if you have kids. Shops and restaurants, lots of outdoor stuff. But better for summer and usually pretty busy. Sometimes they have fire works shows here for occasions like Australia Day, so check their website before you go.

    Taronga Zoo

    56 reviews

    We took a ferry to the Zoo – with great views of the bay. Ferries are very much in use as public transportation. After that, we took a cable car to the top. We got to see a lot of unusual animals: wombat sleeping on his back (not a pretty sight), echidna, kangaroos, nocturnal animals, platypus, flying fox, gorillas eating ...

    12 Apostles

    41 reviews

    The 12 Apostles are certainly stunning. At the same time, the walks nearby are very limited and after about ten minutes you've seen your fill. They are doable in a single long day trip from Melbourne but almost not worth it. It's much smarter to drive down the Great Ocean Road and spent the night so that the long drug ...

    Great Barrier Reef

    36 reviews

    I don't think I can ever go back to seeing underwater that not Great Barrier Reef. It was just stunning. During just a short snorkeling trip, we saw turtles, shark, countless fish, and amazing corals. It is a great place to develop respect for the mother earth and nature, as well as seeing some amazing marine life.

    The site of the first European settlement in Sydney. Contains some nice old buildings but otherwise it is a bit of a tourist trap.

    Royal Botanic Gardens

    34 reviews

    The Royal Botanic Gardens are a great free park open during daylight hours on most days. Besides the botany, the birds that accompany the plants and trees are most interesting. At the waters edges there's a view of the opera house. This is a great way to experience Sydney without breaking the bank.

    Melbourne Cricket Ground

    33 reviews

    The Melbourne Cricket Ground, or MCG as it is called, is what many Aussies would consider the main stadium for the entire country. It holds international Cricket matches here, but can also have other events, like Aussie Rules football, with rival Melbourne teams like the Collingwood Magpies, St Kilda, Carleton and the Richmond Tigers going at it.

    Sydney Aquarium

    39 reviews

    On my last night in Sydney, I decided to take the train to the harbour and walk around the aquarium. The Sydney Aquarium is most impressive, not just in size, but in the many different species they house there. They had a shark exhibit that was really cool along with an exhibit filled with coral reef fish. I went later ...

    St. Kilda Beach

    28 reviews

    A trip to St. Kilda is a must for visitors. It is not so much about the beach, which is neither here nor there, but the whole experience. St. Kilda beach offers great people watching and plenty of activities (like the Sunday market). I love taking a late afternoon stroll down St. Kilda beach and then having dinner at one ...
