Sydney's Major Attractions
What to see in Sydney?
Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House
Sydney's two major attractions are the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Both are conveniently located on opposite sides of Circular Quay.
Sydney Harbour - Sydney's No.1 attraction
The star of the show, the number one attraction in Sydney, is Sydney Harbour. Unless you have a note from your doctor you must get yourself on a Sydney Ferry and/or a Sydney Harbour Cruise. My advice is take the ferry to Manly and/or take a harbour cruise. Sydney Harbour looks equally fabulous from decks of a Sydney Ferry or a Cruise Boat.
Manly - Manly's attraction is it doesn't feel like you are in Sydney..
Ironically, Manly is one of Sydney top attractions because it makes you feel like you aren't in Sydney. Catch the Manly ferry from Circular Quay. Grab an ice cream from the wharf. Browse your way through the Corso directly opposite enjoying the fountains as you go. When you get the beach turn right. After a few minutes you'll find yourself approaching Shelly Beach. Good spot for coffee stop or snack ..More.
North Head, Manly
Catch the bus from Manly Wharf or drive. North Head provides unsurpassed views of the most beautiful harbour in the world More
Sydney's Taronga Zoo
Sydney's premier Zoo gives you animals on the side of a hill sloping down to Sydney Harbour. This gives wonderful Sydney Harbour Views to photograph as well as the animals. The Sky Safari is highly recommended unless you enjoy climbing hills. More
Sydney's Open Air Cinema
The Open Air Cinema, close to Mrs Macquaries Chair in the Royal Botanic Gardens, is the most expensive, hardest to get into and the most 'must do' of a number of outdoor cinemas in Sydney. With a drink in hand, big screen with the Sydney City Skyline, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge as a backdrop it is hard to beat. If the movie is getting dull just watch the fruit bats fly off to feed or admire Sydney at its best - at night. Sadly, the Open Air Cinema is only open during the summer. More
Life is a Beach
We have already touch upon Manly Beach, Bondi is the Australian iconic 'People's Beach' but Palm Beach and her brothers and sisters in the Northern Beaches of Sydney are real jewel's in the sandy crown. More
