When planning a trip, you want to hit all the important places to visit in Sydney. There’s no way to see absolutely everything the city has to offer, but there are a few places to visit in Sydney worth checking out if you haven’t before.
If you’ve ever been to Sydney before, you may have had the pleasure of walking along or sitting by the water in Darling Harbour. In the summer, enhance the experience with an ice cream cone and in the winter keep cozy with a warm coffee or hot chocolate. Grab a bite to eat and look out at the water over your meal. The harbor is a Sydney icon for a reason.
Speaking of spending time near the water, it’s worth heading out of the city for a trip to the famous Bondi beach. Australia is known for its wonderful beaches and Bondi is one of the best. Even on a cooler day, Bondi beach is still gorgeous to look at. And on a warmer day, grab your swimming gear and a towel and soak in the sun.
One of the best things about Sydney is that if the bustling Bondi beach is too busy for you, there are plenty more beaches just a few minutes away.
One of the oldest suburbs of Sydney, the Rocks is full of historic charm. Wander up and down the roads and get a sense of what Sydney was like hundreds of years ago. There’s plenty of pubs around to pop into for lunch and a cheeky lunchtime drink if you’re in the mood. Don’t miss Church Hill at the southern end of the rocks, that’s where Australia’s first Christian three churches were formed. Everywhere you look in The Rocks, there’s something to be seen, perfect for anyone who’s curious to learn more and history buffs alike.
The iconic theme park might be a little younger than the Melbourne version, but it’s still one of the more historic parts of Sydney. The park was constructed in 1935 and it’s still a favorite attraction for tourists and locals. Walk in for free before deciding if (or how many) rides you want to go on.
These four iconic places to visit in Sydney will help you get a feel for the city’s culture. Try exploring elsewhere in the city to find your must-see Sydney spots.
