Definitely something I fell in love with although I do recommend going with or meeting up with friends.
A wonderful city to visit. I would especially recommend the Opera House. Do attend a concert. The acoustics are the finest in the world.
Loved the vibe. Juxtaposition of modern and historic. Hop on a water taxi at the Harbour or just enjoy magnificent views, food and fun.
Your first trip to Australia isn't complete without visiting Sydney! Sydney became what it is today as the British sent their prisoners to the country through its harbour entry. During their stay, the prisoners decided to spruce up the place lol (from what I remember from my tour guide). Ok ok, so in this post, I will discuss with you things to do in Sydney, accommodations, lessons learned and my total costs for travel to Australia from the United States! So let us dive in to my lessons learned: - Have cash available at the Sydney Fish - Market as some stands only accept cash. - Eat at Doyle's at the Fish Market! - Luckily I didn't travel to Melbourne as part of my getaway but in April it was really cold (for me). - Buy coffee beans in Melbourne for a souvenir! - Upon arrival to Australia, 16 countries including the US, goes through e-passport. You scan your own passport and take your own picture! And yes you save space in your passport as you don't get stamped. - I recommend visiting the Wildlife Park for about 2 hours. - Visit the Circular Quay (pronounced Key) area in Sydney for great pubs, people watching and access to the harbour! It is also a transportation hub for ferries and trains. Oh and it is a great place to get photos of the opera house and bridge. - In Sydney, stay in the CBD area for easy access to tourist attractions and local activities. - If you decide to go to the Handa Opera, eat before or after as the food is expensive there. - Per the tour guide (someone please verify), the first Harbour was originally where the Sydney airport is located but the water was too shallow there. Therefore, the harbour moved to its current location. Get more details at KitatheExplorer!
