Entertainment and Travel in Sydney
The Rocks Discovery Museum, Q Station at North Head and the top things to do in Canberra!

If this is the first time you visited (Hi, Welcome!), you might be better off starting from the beginning. Either use the menu on your left that links from the top 5 to the top 150 or, alternatively, go straight to the Home Page.

Why things to in Canberra!
I know, not exactly Sydney is it but you can day trip it, it is a good option if the weather isn’t great and it is Australia’s capital. Yes, maybe it shouldn’t be, but it is and whether you live here, or are just visiting, it is there and we probably should go every now and then. Look at it this way, if nobody visited, they would get sad and lonely.
Further information, advice, tips and independent commentary is contained on the top 150. There is also a navigation bar located somewhere up there on your left.

160 Commonwealth Bank, Martin Place
161 Immigration – Department of
Commonwealth Bank and Department of Immigration!
The Commonwealth Bank in Martin Place is really very attractive inside and probably should be used for something other than as a bank. As for the Department of Immigration, it is a little bit of a joke but I meet so many people who have visited Sydney, fall in love with the place, and want to stay. We locals don’t know how lucky we are.
Don’t be dissuaded by the relatively low ranking of some of the attractions. There are many attractions that don’t even make the list. As there is so much to do and so little time to do it all, it is surely the best things that you should focus on. For many people it is a long way to come, ensure you make the most of your time here.
In addition, an attraction or a top thing to do, maybe a distance from Sydney or recently listed. One or two may have had some negative feedback from one of our readers so if you think it should be higher up the list please let us know.
What else is there to do?
The next top thing(s) to do in Sydney will be listed later in the year. However, the Top 100 Travel Guide has more content than the web site, so you can pick up more ideas from the book. It also contains more information, tips and money saving ideas as well as itineraries and all kinds of good stuff. A steal at $9-95.
