Sydney Attractions

In a city of its size, history and reputation, you’ll discover a seemingly endless list of sites to see and things to do in Sydney. The first stop on many sightseeing itineraries is Sydney Harbour. This area is home to some of Sydney’s most famous icons, including the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Cruising on a Sydney Ferry is a great way to take in the sights of sounds of Sydney Harbour, with convenient stops located at Luna Park and Taronga Zoo as well.

Visit Sydney’s beautiful sandy beaches to experience some of the city’s best assets for yourself. Bondi Beach is popular among tourists and locals alike. Manly Beach, on the other hand, is a popular alternative for its laid-back atmosphere and excellent surfing opportunities.

Experience Sydney like a local by visiting a market or two. Whether they’re a weekend ritual or a once-a-year affair, Sydney’s markets often deliver if you know where to look. For fresh produce and gourmet goodies, it’s hard to go past The Rocks Foodies Markets. As far as size is concerned, however, Paddy’s Markets beats them all. Paddy’s is great for finding affordable souvenirs, clothing, novelty items, toys and more. After more than 150 years of operation, these markets have become a Sydney institution.
