Fun and Adventure
To kick off your adventure, mix water and speed for an exhilarating experience on Sydney Harbour aboard a jet boat with operators such as Thunder Jet, Oz Jet Boating, Harbour Jet and Sydney Jet. Sailing on one of the most beautiful natural harbours in the world will raise your heart beat, too.
Battle the rapids at Penrith Whitewater Stadium and skydive indoors in one of the largest vertical wind tunnels in the world at iFLY Downunder . Blast into the air with a water jetpack strapped to your back at Jetpack Adventures , in the Sydney International Regatta Centre .
Ever wanted to swim with sharks? Go to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, in Darling Harbour, which has a see-through enclosure where you can snorkel. You'll also see king penguins, sharks, stingrays, turtles and seahorses. Behind-the-scenes tours are available.
Another wonderful experience is Fantasea's Bondi Boat, a twice-daily cruise to Bondi Beach. You'll travel past harbourside suburbs and the dramatic cliffs of the Heads into the ocean. Time it right and you might even spot a whale. Whale-watching season is officially between May and November.
For spectacular panoramic views of the city and beyond, climb the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge with BridgeClimb. An ingenious engineering feat, it's the largest steel arch bridge in the world. You can walk and cycle across the bridge. Along the walk is the south-eastern Pylon Lookout, which also offers a spectacular panorama.
