If you can't something useful amongst that lot please let us know and we will work, and try, harder to find you something fun to do in Sydney.
What to do in Sydney
The Sydney things you will enjoy the most, or be attracted to, may be driven by your circumstances. With that in mind:
Top 100 Plus things to do in Sydney
We have now listed over 150 top things to do in Sydney and the list just keeps on growing. Even better is the Sydney100 Travel Guide which will save you cash and it fits neatly into your IPad for some light reading whilst commuting (by ferry hopefully) between Sydney's top attractions.
Sydney Sightseeing Tours
Getting yourself on a decent sightseeing tour might well be the best answer to the question "What to do in Sydney?" Maybe you don't have much time, or you just want someone else to do the organising or maybe it's a bit of both. Whatever your reasons, a quality sightseeing tour can provide a really good, albeit brief, look at Sydney.
What to do when it rains in Sydney
Sydney is a city designed for the outdoors. So when it rains, which we actually do need from time to time, you can be left scratching your head a little trying to figure out what to do. We have listed a few surprising things like the beach (well, if you are going to go for a swim..) and few other things you may not have thought of or knew about. We hope you find the list useful.
What to do outside of Sydney
Within the 150 top things to do plus in Sydney are a few that are, if the truth be told, not actually in Sydney. We are basically just acknowledging that visitors are free and bound to visit Sydney's surrounds to view their outstanding beauty among the other wonderful things worth doing. The Blue Mountains is a case in point. We have pulled some of these things together as a things to do close to Sydney page. Canberra gets a mention towards the end of the list but Melbourne doesn't as it's too far. So we have given Melbourne it's own brief page. Brisbane and Queensland, being even further away, get their own website, Queensland100.com.
Free things to do with a visitor pass
By limiting you to a set number of Sydney attractions the card has a way of narrowing down what you do and see. This is a good or bad thing depending upon the sort of things you want to do. Have a good, hard look at the attractions covered by the pass and then compare it to the stuff on Sydney100 list. What's not covered that you would really like to do? e.g. Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb.
Sydney Harbour Cruises
You can't go far wrong in Sydney if you get yourself on the Harbour. It is all good. We have listed a few favourites to help.
Things to do in Sydney during the School Holidays
We experience a sharp increase in traffic during the school holiday as parents and other 'related parties' search for ways to keep a level of sanity within their lives. There are different pages for different holidays but one page that links to them all:
What's on in Sydney
Like most international cities, there is a seemingly endless number of events and activities happening all over Sydney. It is sometimes hard to know what's on in Sydney that's worth seeing. We attempt to help out by supplying you with a list (naturally) of what we regard as the top events in town. The list is updated weekly and you can sign up to the newsletter so you don't need to keep coming back (although not everything gets emailed - we get a bit lazy sometimes, sorry :)
I'm not sure if Sydney is blessed with more festivals than anyone else but there is certainly room for a Festival of Festivals (or FOF). During FOF week, all the major festivals could provide a sample of what they do in one festival. Mind you, were that to actually happen, everyone would go and Sydney would grind to a halt. So maybe not. Here is a list of festivals that just keeps on growing:
Should you hire a car whilst in Sydney?
Whether or not you should hire a car very much depends upon how much time you have. If you are staying for more than a few days then it is well worth considering
What to avoid?
You may have heard a few stories about Australia's gang of nasties including Snakes, Spiders and Sharks. What are the chances of you actually having any contact with them?
What to do now?
Have you read all the above and followed all the links? Wow! Impressive. If you have done all that, and may I say, not in a shy way, we would like your input. I bet you have, or will have once you have done a few top things in Sydney, something to say:
and you can even let everybody know just how many top things in Sydney you have done
