Top 25 Things to do in Sydney
What to do in Sydney? For starters, how about that fabulous walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach!
What other top things are there to do Sydney?
The top 25 things to do in Sydney (or rather 21 to 25, the other top things to do are linked from the navigation bar on your left) includes some wonderful things to do on Sydney's Eastern Suburbs including the now famous walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach, what to do when you get to Coogee and Watsons Bay near South Head for awesome views and a great spot for lunch. For the wine lovers there is a suggested short trip out of Sydney to the Hunter Valley. For those with an adventurous spirit there are scenic flights to experience Sydney in all of her glory.
The walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach is another classic. Walk from Bondi to Coogee Beach and be greeted by fantastic views, beautiful beaches, cliffs and even an old cemetery (Waverley) with unimpeded views out to sea. Tamarama ('Glamarama' so they say), one of the places you will come across, has a café very close to the beach and is a good spot to rest along the way. Allow three to four hours and take your time. Note the lack of fences between Bondi and Coogee Beaches so please keep a close rein on the kiddies.
22 (23) Sexy Coogee Beach
Visit Coogee Beach - the backpacker capital of the world!! Well sometimes Coogee feels like it. Apart from beach itself, Coogee has great views and walks to either Bronte/Bondi or Maroubra.
For a view whilst munching head for the southern end of Coogee Beach for breakfast and lunch. Be prepared to wait for a table if you arrive after 10am on a weekend.
Beach Palace Hotel
On the north side of Coogee Beach you'll find the Beach Palace Hotel. If you can still do it without paying, climb to the top bar of the Beach Palace Hotel, get a cold drink and sit yourself down on the veranda and enjoy the view out to sea and across Coogee Beach.
Coogee Bay Hotel
For music fans the Coogee Bay and Beach Palace Hotels cater for you with all kinds provided it's loud and usually involves jumping around a lot. For the brave there's a kebab shop directly opposite the Coogee Bay Hotel open till very late.
The Doyles Pub has great views and beer. If there is any room, grab a table upstairs.
There is something about Doyles at Watsons Bay. Is a little over priced and often crowded but the staff are fun and friendly and the view says - 'stop worrying, relax and have another drink' (or maybe that was the waiter!), either way it's a magnificent spot.
Catch the ferry from Circular Quay
With good friends, nice wine and sound of the waves lapping against the beach it’s harder to think of a more pleasant way to spend a sunny afternoon than at Watsons Bay. Catch the ferry from Circular Quay and be prepared to loosen the belt, empty the wallet (or purse) and seriously chill.

Be blown away by a scenic flight over Sydney Harbour, up there with life's unforgettable experiences. Don't forget to bring your camera.
As you briefly fly out over Sydney Heads you should be able to see the waves as they smash into Sydney's magnificent sandstone cliffs which rise up in defiance against the Pacific Ocean.
You will track these cliffs northwards over Sydney's most impressive natural scenery to Palm Beach. The pilot will manoeuvre the aircraft to ensure you get a fantastic view.
From Palm Beach you head back towards Sydney Harbour. Even for a seasoned local the vista is truly stunning. You will fly over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House before gently touching down on the water in Rose Bay. You will be so thrilled when you land that you will be tempted to do it again!
Gliding over Sydney
Gliding is an experience like no other
There is flying, and then there is gliding. There is just the air, your instructor and a state of the art glider between you and a rather unhappy ending. This is about as close as it gets to "soaring like a bird". You will not just be a passenger, although you will get to enjoy the view without the noise of an engine to spoil it, you also get a go at the controls. After a spot of sightseeing, you will gently glide back down to earth. You won't forget this flight of a lifetime, for a lifetime.
