    Sydney Opera House

    152 reviews

    The must see when traveling to Australia! I was able to go inside and walk around when people were having a concert one day. It's gorgeous and so well constructed. And the bathrooms are really pretty with lots of fancy towels! The outside of the opera house is just as amazing - a few restaurants that overlooks the ocean, lots ...

    Sydney Harbour Bridge

    97 reviews

    Call it a giant coathanger or a giant mouthguard, the Harbour Bridge is still a thoroughly lovely piece of architecture, and as much a part of the city's iconic harbor scenery as its famous opera house. Take a stroll up Argyle street and onto the bridge walkway -- opportunities for panoramic shots of the city are great from near the ...

    Bondi Beach

    Manly Beach

    66 reviews

    One of Sydney's most famous beaches and a favorite for surfers as well. This was probably my favorite break in Sydney. I would have loved a couple more days here!

    Darling Harbour & Haymarket

    65 reviews

    Check the schedule- they hold fireworks here on certain days (it's their way of practicing for the New Years Eve show); make reservations for dinner ahead of time or you won't get a seat anywhere!

    Taronga Zoo

    56 reviews

    A visit to the Sydney Taronga Zoo is a fun family day out. You first take a ferry across the harbour and then you take a cable car up to the top of the zoo and then walk and wind your way back down through the zoo.

    Sydney Harbour is beautiful. In addition to iconic structures like the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, it's surrounded by quaint neighborhoods such as The Rocks. You can catch ferries to other parts of Sydney such as Manly Beach.

    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.

    Sydney Aquarium

    39 reviews

    Sydney Aquarium is decent enough but a bit overpriced for the crowded and baby-stroller-ridden experience you'll have. They really need a place for families to store all of the stuff that they won't use during the couple of hours they'll spend here. You can get discount tickets to visit two or more of the Sydney attractions, so that takes the ...

    Bondi to Bronte Walk

    25 reviews

    Too many visitors confine their coastal visits in Sydney to Bondi alone. More's the pity, because the roughly 6km walk south from the city's blockbuster surfing beach to the suburban coast at Coogee gives an overview of what's best in sun-and-sand, with glimpses of what the locals love apart from all the tourist glitz. The roughly two-hour walk (though you ...
