            Top 10 Things to do in Sydney

            A trip to Sydney is an essential part of any Australian holiday, and the country's largest city is often labelled as one of the most beautiful in the world due to its idyllic balance of architecture, iconic landmarks, beautiful harbour, botanic gardens and impressive skyline. In fact, Sydney is the most visited city in the country and even the world-famous harbour featuring the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House doesn't fail to wow Australians who visit.

            A truly vibrant city that is full of a consistent buzz and high degree of energy, Sydney will have something to captivate you regardless of whether you're an Aussie visiting from interstate or an international visitor from overseas. The city is so large and full of things to do that there are a wide range of "must see" Sydney landmarks and Sydney attractions. If you miss them, you will be missing out on some of the unique features that give Sydney its own distinct personality.

            For example, no visit to Sydney would be complete without jumping on a Sydney Harbour Cruise and perhaps even more iconic Sydney activities like the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb or visit to the Sydney Tower Eye. You might think that by joining a tour, you'll be accompanied by international travellers, but actually Sydney tours are a popular choice amongst Australian travellers visiting the city for the first time and the bonus is you don't have to fork out the exorbitant car hire and parking fees while you are here.

            A popular pick among the Sydney tours are excursions to the Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves from Sydney or if you love a drink of the red stuff then you'll want to jump on a Hunter Valley winery tour. If you prefer to spend your time in the city then Sydney attractions will manage to keep the history buff, sightseer and wildlife lovers happy too. Think a Taronga Zoo and Ferry adventure, a Sydney Hop on hop off bus tour or a walking tour of the Sydney Opera House and The Rocks.

            Regardless of whether you're exploring the city centre and its metropolitan areas, the northern and southern surf beaches that have gained their own fame, popular civic venues, landmarks and scenic spots, there is seemingly a "must-see" location around every corner! In order to make things easier on the first-time traveller to New South Wales' capital, we've put together a list of the Top 10 things to do in Sydney for every traveller to help ensure a great balance of all the highlights and Sydney attractions and its wonderful surrounds are covered. So, without further ado, here's the list!

            Top 10 Things to do in Sydney - Sydney Opera House

            1. Sydney Opera House

            Location: Bennelong Point, Sydney Harbour NSW

            While we suppose that "Sydney Harbour" in general could be listed here, the Sydney Opera House stands apart from the rest of the harbour's icons.

            Perhaps Australia's most famous man-made icon worldwide, the Sydney Opera House is a unique feat of architectural design and engineering that helps add tremendously to the character of the already scenic Sydney Harbour.

            A structure that was formed out of a rare combination of innovation, creativity and controversy, the Sydney Opera House is a remarkable building that is host to over 1,500 performances that draw audiences of around 1.2 million people each year.

            An innovative structure that was formed out of creativity and controversy, the Sydney Opera House is a remarkable building hosting over 1,500 performances each year. Join a guided tour to get a sneak peak behind the scenes of this Australian icon.

            The Opera House can be found on Sydney Harbour's Bennelong Point at the northeastern tip of the Sydney CBD and is surrounded on three sides by the harbour, and is often seen in pictures and postcards along with the nearby Sydney Harbour Bridge, both of which usually combine to provide an overall representation of the Sydney Harbour panorama.

            A triumph of modern architecture for which its designer, Danish architect Jorn Utzon, won the Pritzker Price (the field of architecture's highest award) in 2003, the Sydney Opera House has been labelled as one of the great iconic buildings of the entire 20th century, and is an image of great beauty that has become known throughout the world as a symbol for not only the city of Sydney, but for the entire country and continent of Australia as a whole.

            Numerous tours are available which aim to encompass all of the main highlights and features of Sydney Harbour, with some placing specific emphasis on the Opera House itself - no visit to Sydney is complete without taking in the majesty of this famous feat of construction.

            Top 10 Things to do in Sydney - Sydney Seaplane Flights

            2. Sydney Seaplane Flights

            Location: Various Locations, Sydney

            There is no better way to see the landmarks of Sydney than to take to the skies on a scenic flight high above the city and be rewarded with impressive aerial views.

            Joy flights are a great way to discover to a new city and get the lay of the land. They may also give you ideas on what other areas you might like to visit after your flight.

            Unlike other international cities, Sydney is not just a concrete jungle but a growing urban, city by the coast with large green spaces and one of the most beautiful harbours in the world.

            Join a scenic flight to discover the city sights from the air including the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour and waterfront homes with their million dollar views.

            Unlike other international cities, Sydney is not just a concrete jungle but a growing urban, city by the coast with large green space and one of the most beautiful harbours in the world.

            Depending on the length of the scenic flight, you may also get the chance to fly over Bondi Beach, Taronga Zoo, Rose Bay and other popular city sights.

            Sydney has a range of scenic flight options including seaplane flights over the city highlights, helicopter flights and even hot air balloon rides at sunrise.

            Although scenic flights can often be pricey, Sydney really is a beautiful Australian city and passengers all agree afterwards that it is money well spent.

            Land based tours can provide you with a close up look at a variety of tourist attractions but aerial flights will give you the chance to capture the entire harbour in one spectacular photo.

            Whether you are a local, a visitor doing some sightseeing or an eager photographer, a flight over Sydney is one activity that you should add to your bucket list at least once in your lifetime.

            Top 10 Things to do in Sydney - Bondi Beach Surf Lessons

            3. Bondi Beach Surf Lessons

            Location: Bondi Beach, Sydney

            When people think of Sydney or indeed Australia, one of the iconic images they get in their mind is of surfers at Bondi Beach.

            This world famous beach is home to the oldest surf lifesaving club in the world with a colourful history of the bikini and beach inspectors, festivals, sculptures, Bondi Rescue and the now infamous Bondi Hipster.

            It is also one of Australia’s National Surfing Reserves. Don’t just sit on the beach and watch, get in amongst the action and learn to surf with your very own surf lesson.

            Top 10 Things to do in Sydney - Luna Park Sydney

            4. Luna Park Sydney

            Location: 1 Olympic Drive, Milsons Point, NSW

            Luna Park Sydney is one of the most iconic city landmarks steeped in history and providing laughter and entertainment to all those who visit.

            The amusement park is a nod to the old school days featuring some of the remnants of the 1930’s Art Deco style architecture.

            The concept was designed on the successful Coney Island in New York featuring the staple wooden rollercoasters and side show games and attractions. A place for young and old to come along for hours of entertainment.

            Luna Park originally opened in Sydney on October 4, 1935 and is one of the oldest surviving amusement parks of the 20th century. During WWII the park was a respite for servicemen providing light entertainment during a tense time in Australian history.

            And although the park has had a tumultuous history with declining age, a series of ownership changes and the threat of redevelopment, Luna Park Sydney has survived due in part to the support of locals and a heritage listing status awarded in 2010.

            The park’s location on Milson’s Point and colourful ‘smiling face’ entrance makes it a landmark that attracts visitors from far and wide with its harbourside views, carnival atmosphere and nostalgia.

            Luna Park is one of Sydney’s most iconic city landmarks sitting on the banks of Milsons Point. The art deco themed amusement park is steeped in history and provides hours of laughter and entertainment to all who visit.

            The upgraded Luna Park also features a concert venue and private facilities for conferences, parties and weddings with fantastic harbourside views.

            Whether you are young or simply young at heart, a stroll around Luna Park is a great way to spend a few hours in Sydney. Ride the Ferris Wheel, zip around on the crazy mouse rollercoaster, test your nerves in the haunted ‘Mystery Manor’ or take a ‘Wonky Walk’ in the Coney Island Funny Land.

            Luna Park operating hours change throughout the year so we advise checking the website before your visit but the park is always open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

            The best way to get to Luna Park is via a scenic ferry ride from Circular Quay to Milson Point Wharf. You won’t miss it as the ferry stops directly in front of the iconic Luna Park Sydney face.

            Entry prices with unlimited ride passes begin from $25 and are based on heights rather than age limit.

            Top 10 Things to do in Sydney - Sydney Harbour Bridge

            8. Sydney Harbour Bridge

            Location: 3 Cumberland St, The Rocks, Sydney, NSW

            Affectionately known to Australians as the coathanger due to its arch design, the construction of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge was completed in 1932 and alongside the Sydney Opera House has become an international symbol of Australia.

            The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the largest steel arch bridge in the world linking Sydney and the North Shore. The bridge was a significant infrastructure project of the 20th Century that is now heavily used (almost at capacity) to move traffic on rail, vehicles, bicycle and pedestrians around the city.

            The bridge is positioned over the Sydney Harbour and stands tall at 134 metres above the water level and its striking design is one of the first thing that visitors via plane or cruise ship will see as they enter Sydney.

            The steel bridge weighs 52, 800 tonnes and is supported by two high concrete pylons which are purely aesthetic and hold no structural purpose but are now home to a museum, tourist centre and a bridge climb facility.

            The incredible engineering feat took almost 11 years to complete and despite incredibly lax safety by today’s standards only two men fell from the bridge during construction.

            "There aren’t too many iconic national symbols that you can climb, however, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of them. The ageless and awe-inspiring feature of Sydney Harbour rewards climbers with the best harbour views."

            The bridge was formally opened on 19 March 1932 with the intention of the New South Wales Premier to cut the ribbon, however, right before the ribbon was to be cut a man in military uniform rode on horseback and cut the ribbon on behalf of the people. The ribbon was quickly retied so that the ceremony could be re-performed.

            Aside from its incredible history, the Sydney Harbour Bridge has become home to the Bridge Climb Experience which began in 1998 offering locals and visitors the chance to climb the steel arches.

            This experience has quickly become one of the most sought after activity in Sydney that even many dignitaries and celebrities have joined the tour and climbed the steps to the top of the harbour bridge.

            The draw for visitors is the incredible views once you reach the summit. Climbers are rewarded with a backdrop of the Sydney Opera House, the city skyline and then the multi-million dollar mansions and beaches as far as the eye can see.

            Sydney Harbour Bridge climbs are often both day and night but for a truly memorable experience, we recommend a sunrise or sunset climb to get a bird’s eye view of the city waking up or winding down for the day.
