Sydney, Australia is one of the world’s best travel destinations. It is home to some of the finest restaurants, wineries, and beaches. A trip to Sydney would not be complete without seeing the fabulous Sydney Harbor showcasing the famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Sydney is known for having the friendliest people, so you’ll feel right at home. Perhaps that is why Sydney has been voted the best city in the world for visitors six consecutive years.

Here are some activities you can consider in your trip to Sydney (whether you are on a STRETCH (every-penny-counts) or SPLURGE (oh-so-lavish) budget):

  • Hire a bike and pedal your way through the many sights of Sydney Harbour or Manly.
  • Taste delicious meat pies at Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, world-renowned Australian icon.
  • Trawl for unique gifts and bargains at Sydney’s buzzing weekend markets – The Rocks Markets, Paddy’s Markets, Paddington Markets, Eveleigh Markets, Bondi Markets.
  • Travel like the locals on a Sydney ferry and uncover many of Sydney’s ‘hidden gems’ affordably – including Watsons Bay, Cockatoo Island, and Manly.
