Exploring Sydney The Right Way

When an opportunity comes up to visit this magnificent city you should be well-prepared. There is never enough time to see and explore everything Sydney has to offer. However, with a bit of planning and some itinerary framework, you might be able to see some essential sights and get to experience Sydney like a local. So let’s see what we can do to help you have the best possible Down Under experience.

Getting around

Sydney offers a whole selection of transport options from busses and subway to taxis and boats. We will go over these in just a minute. But the first step is, of course, your arrival, it is best to take private airport transfers in Sydney, that way you can get directly to your accommodation, no additional stops and in a comfort of a great vehicle with an experienced driver. Now, when you have settled and rested it is time to go exploring. Check out where the nearest metro station is so that you can get to the more remote parts of the city. Next step is to see which areas you can get on foot. It is at times fun to get lost a bit and wander the Streets of Sydney, there is always something new to see and explore, and you will be surprised how much this beautiful city has to offer. Finally, make sure you plan out the quickest route to the beach, it would be a shame to visit Australia and not spend at least a single day at the beach.

Sights less visited

When we think about Sydney there are some sights that pop into our mind immediately. First, there is the Harbour bridge, the famous Sydney Opera and of course the Darling Harbour. There is no dispute these are a must see. But if you want to stray away from these tourist traps you can opt to pay a visit to the trendy and hipster Newton neighborhood. First of all, you will be blown away by the rich choices when it comes to restaurants and bistros on KIng Street. You won’t want to miss the very vibrant craft beer scene. You should definitely pay a visit to the famous Enmore Theatre, one of Sydney’s most popular live music venues. Caching a live act there is a truly unique experience. You might also want to visit some of the beautiful Sydney parks, and simply take an hour or two to sit and enjoy nature, soaking in the sun and the energy of this magical city.

Make sure you treat your taste buds

Sydney houses some of the best restaurants in the world, but if you want to dive into a more local experience you should definitely pay a visit to some of the Sydney markets. Whether it is the famous Sydney Fish Market where you can get freshly caught and cooked seafood, or the local favorite, Manly Market Place where you can get fresh fruit and vegetables and try some local delicacies from street vendors. You can also visit the Chippendale café Brickfields for some fresh croissants and sourdough loaves just to complete the local experience.

So you are now ready to take on this amazing city. You can expect to draw back over and over again because Sydney is simply that interesting and you can’t get enough of it. And if the city itself is not enough, you always have the stunning nature that surrounds it, from national parks to mountain ranges and amazing vineyards.
