121 – Sir Joseph Banks Park
Sir Joseph Banks is a well loved park close to Botany Bay complete with nice walks, a maze, sculptures and great views.
122 – Fort 1801 Middle Harbour Fort 1801 is another newish attraction ..kind of on account of actually being over 200 years old (?)
123 – Hunters Hill
124 – Cook and Phillip Park Cook and Phillip Park is good for a swim and an escape from any unfriendly weather that might be hanging around.
Newtown is a colourful area and quite unique.
127 – Strand Arcade The Strand Arcade is an impressive arcade that runs from Pitt Street into George. So you should use it as a ‘short-cut’ if nothing else.
128 – Town Hall (guided tours)
If you can get on a tour, highlights will include the Lower Ground Vault, the Grand Organ and a model of Sydney.
129 – Marble Bar
The Entertainment Quarter (EQ) and Fox Studios are just a little detached from the rest of Sydney in the sense that you can’t just walk down to the harbour or other key attractions. Well, that’s not strictly true, it just might take a while. You could also walk through Centennial Park. Consequently most people drive or catch the bus.
131 – Berowra Waters – Berowra Waters is a lovely spot on the edge of Sydney’s north west. It resides down here in the rankings as we have received some negative feedback.
Would you like to the visit the Bungle Bungles in Western Australia? You could just visit the Gardens of Stone National Park in NSW as a ‘poor man’s alternative’.
Aren’t the names just great. The walk is not bad either.
134 – Nan Tien Temple – The Nan Tien Temple is the largest Buddhist Temple this side of the equator.
135 – Welcome Wall The Welcome Wall is yet another Darling Harbour attraction.
136 – Discover Parramatta
Parramatta, the geographic centre of Sydney, has a history and an attraction all of its own.
137 – City Walking Tours Guide The city is a great place to go for a stroll.
139 – Water Taxi You don’t come across too many traffic jams in a Water Taxi.
140 – Bowling / Bowling Clubs
Bowling is a very popular activity in Australia. The clubs often run events and promotions to encourage new members.
Why would anyone would every want to leave Sydney(?) is a nice sentiment but in reality, a perfectly reasonable and understandable thing to do. We all need a break sometimes. We can only stand so much gorgeousness. So if you are looking to escape paradise, for another slice of paradise, we have launched, or rather re-launched, a page for stops between Sydney and Brisbane. It also incorporates some day trip ideas, so it is not just for those with a car. We will probably enlarge and split it into two pages, stops and day trips, but for now it is all rolled into one.
Whatever you do and wherever you do it, please don’t forget to bookmark the Top 100 Home Page, and while you are at it, you might like to invest in a TOP100 e-book to ensure you get the maximum benefit out of being in one of the most beautiful cities on the planet.
