Are you planning a Sydney holiday? Good choice. Sydney is a city full of amazing surprises and beautiful contrasts. On one hand are the land attractions that will surely have your hands full of things to do. On the other are the water sights that will make you believe that nature went out of its way to please you. You can choose where you will start your adventure and fun-filled Sydney travel, but you should sample both during the course of your stay. Nevertheless, before you tour around, you must find a good Sydney accommodation to help you settle in the city.
The Land World: Sophistication and Fun
This beautiful city of Sydney is full of fun places to visit that you might not know how you could manage to see everything. The trick is in picking the largest or most famous landmarks before seeking out the smaller ones. Choose a Sydney accommodation closest to the first place you want to visit. The best place to kick-start your Sydney travel is the Opera House, which made Sydney very well-known all over the world. There are several tours that you can choose from. Pick one of the many that they offer and get ready to be mesmerized by the majesty of the opera house.
The next stop could be the Sydney Tower, which will show you an amazing 360-degree view of Sydney on observation tower sections. Dining at the topmost part of it will surely be one of the best and exhilarating mealtime experiences you will ever have. The Sydney Tower Restaurant, like the observation decks, allows a 360-degree view of the spectacular city skyline. The tower also offers OzTrek, a state-of-the-art simulator of various activities that you can do on Sydney. Sitting on the seats specially designed to enhance the experience, you can “travel” around Australia like you really were there. Pick a tour toward Australia’s wild outback and ride that fast-moving mother kangaroo or that untamed buffalo or that large emu. Don’t forget to check out Sydney Harbour and the bridge, which are just so near the opera house.
Your Sydney holiday will not be complete if you will not visit real animals that you might have seen in your OzTrek trip. Taronga Zoo is home to different animal species from Australia and from all over the world. You can try the Sky Safari cable car to experience an expansive view of the animals’ habitats.
The Water World: Fun and Beauty
Sydney’s beaches, like those in the whole of Australia, are golden and clear. You can also try the many fun-filled activities at these beaches like swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, and surfing. Jet skis and surf boards can be rented from the shops near these beaches.
Most tourists come to Sydney for the Sydney Aquarium. This very large underwater world features huge walk-through tunnels that allow the visitors to be surrounded by water creatures without even getting wet. Endemic fish and marine species are housed in this aquarium, including the duck-billed platypus.
Another water activity that will not get you wet is watching some concerts aboard floating pontoons at Darling Harbour. Those who want to stand on solid ground while enjoying the waters can take a leisurely stroll along the waterside walks of the harbour.
