Iconic landmarks. Golden beaches. Cosmopolitan luxury. Every year, people flock to Sydney for a city break like no other. But there’s even more to it than meets the eye. From secret gardens and isolated beaches to fresh perspectives on world-famous sights. Wherever you go in Sydney, there’s always something new to discover.
Between the heart-stopping harbours and glittering cityscapes, a cocktail of culture awaits
Things to do
Instead of crowd surfing at Bondi, we’d recommend Milk Beach. In a well-hidden spot, this small stretch of sand is perfect for a day of soaking in the sea and the sun. Or for a spot of swimming that’s less on the wild side, head to one of the coastline’s famous ocean pools.
FOOD & DRINK
Whether it’s the multicultural influence or ocean surrounds, there’s something special about Sydney’s food scene. Chefs across the city steer clear of toned-down dishes, and let the authentic flavours shine through. From the heady aromas of Spice Alley to delicate seafood fresh from the South Pacific – Sydney is a city for foodies.
To soak up the sights all at once, take a photo tour by foot. In this almost impossibly good looking city, you won’t be short of photo ops. Or to get acquainted with one of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks, climb up the Harbour Bridge. While it may seem a little touristy, there are many lesser-known routes to the top, each promising their own enchanting views.
If you’re visiting during the Vivid Light Festival, try the Vivid Climb up Sydney Harbour Bridge for spectacular views of landmarks in dazzling colours and patterns.
