Sydney Attractions

Sydney is home to some of Australia’s most iconic attractions. The Sydney Opera House is a thriving hub of art, culture and history. Nearby, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is arguably the most famous of all of Sydney’s architectural gems and becomes the centrepiece of Sydney’s world famous NYE fireworks display that lights up the night sky every year.

Famous for its entertainment scene, Sydney features a heady mix of world-class theatre, contemporary dance productions, festivals, and local and touring performance acts. Fans of musical theatre should head to the Capitol Theatre, a venue that’s retained the charm of the 1920’s. Now refurbished, the Capitol Theatre also features a great bar where you can get a drink before or after the show and is nearby to dozens of great restaurants in Chinatown and throughout the CBD.

Sydney is a playground for families, with something to cater to kids of all ages and plenty of things to do. The school holidays won’t feature a dull day as there are activities and all-day attractions, including Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Aquarium, that will keep the kids entertained.

Sydney’s picturesque beaches are another one of its main attractions. Thanks to Sydney’s temperate climate, the beautiful beaches of Sydney can be enjoyed year-round. A trip to Sydney isn’t complete until you’ve spent a day in the sun on the iconic sands of Bondi Beach or enjoyed the beachside charm of Manly, while the harbour beaches like RedLeaf Pool offer a calm-water alternative.
