What to do in Sydney

Sydney is a mathematician’s dream: a dazzling display of geometry where patterns, architecture, and people collide in a kaleidoscope of colors and shapes. Nowhere better showcases these motifs than Circular Quay, the hub of Sydney Harbor. At Sydney Opera House, millions of diamond-shaped tiles make up much larger, concentric sails that jut out over the water’s edge, reinforcing the city’s nautical core. Nearby, the steely arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge provides a thoroughfare between Milsons Point and the Rocks—a favorite climb for adventuresome souls. Outside the harbor, what could be a suburban sprawl is blissfully interrupted by the city’s serpentine coastline. Visit hot spots like Bondi Beach or traverse the Great Coastal Walk. Whatever your tourist appetite, this playground is Australia’s answer to the Land of Opportunity.

Traveler Reviews of Sydney

Fat Paddler rates Sydney
I'm a local so I'm biased, but seriously I think Sydney is the most beautiful city in the world. Combine the sub-tropical weather with stunning beaches and the harbour and you get a place that is centred around outdoor lifestyles and living. Highlights for visitors include: paddling on the Harbour, the Bondi Beach to Bronte coast walk, climbing the Harbour Bridge, visiting the Opera House, hiking in the Blue Mountains or simply sitting in a harbour-side bar drinking wine in the afternoon sun! You can also use it as a base for visiting either the NSW Central Coast or the Emerald Coast to the south. And don't forget a visit to the Hunter Valley wine region.
