Sightseeing in Sydney
Sydney offers some unforgettable tourist attractions.
The Sydney Opera House is one of them. This distinctive building, the symbol of this city, has been described as “a masterpiece of human creativity” by UNESCO. However, if you are not an opera fan, you should at least take a tour and discover its main halls along with their thrilling history.
The Sydney Harbor Bridge is an iconic landmark of the city. Its arch-based design and its height will take your breath away. Those who have an adventurous spirit can climb the bridge and indulge in the ultimate Sydney experience.
If you embark upon this venture, you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the entire city.
The Australian Center for Photography – Paddington is another place you shouldn’t miss. This is the leading organisation for photography in Australia and it offers innovative photographic work.
However, if you are into something more classical, there are many museums and galleries in Sydney that are waiting to be discovered. The Art Gallery of New South Wales has an outstanding collection of artworks from settlement to contemporary time.

Sydney can also be an ideal place for a family vacation. You can relax on beautiful sandy beaches and the most famous one is the Bondi Beach.
If you are a sporty person, instead of just relaxing, we encourage you to try out surfing, and two beaches ideal for this activity are Maroubra and Cronulla.

Apart from the seaside, there are many outdoor pools throughout the city. Many of these are placed on the coast so that you can enjoy swimming surrounded by the ocean and a magnificent view.
If you choose this kind of vacation, Randwick, one of the most visited areas outside central Sydney, is the perfect choice for you.
