The best things in life are free, so get out there and experience the best Sydney has to offer!
Sydney Harbour Bridge
When visiting Australia, everyone will always utter the immortal words ‘You must climb the Sydney Bridge‘. The fact that this costs a fair few dollars, takes a fair amount of training beforehand and can take a good few hours, does deter some travelers, not to mention those who are not too good with heights. So why not simply take a walk across the bridge for free? The bridge provides an amazing panorama of the Harbour, Sydney Opera House, Botannical Gardens and imposing cityscape backdrop. Think of the photos!!
Parks & Picnics
Soak up the sun and enjoy the luscious surroundings of Centennial Park – often home to large-scale events such as the Good Vibrations Music concert in March every year – The Domain – a quiet parkland area and the Botannical Gardens of Sydney Harbour – where you can feed the Cockatoos perching on your arm or shoulder. There are a wealth of ponds and hilly spots perfect for a sunny afternoon with a radio and a picnic blanket. So get out there and get a tan and have good times!
Explore the ins and outs of Australia’s diverse Maritime history in the Maritime Museums and Art Galleries of New South Wales. Also why not pay a visit to The Aquarium – home to over 10,000 exotic creatures, plus shark-feeding sessions.
The interactive Immigration Museum is also a must to explore the history of Australia’s inhabitants who have traveled from all over the world and experience over 150 years of immigration history.
Many city-based markets open every weekend. Paddington, Glebe, Bondi and The Rocks – beautiful cobbled streets lined with cafes, shops and galleries. Purchase handcrafts, quality traditional Australian souvenirs, fresh fruit & veg and seafood.
Sydney’s premiere Entertainment/Theme park, Luna Park with free entry for the whole family and perfectly placed by the harbor, it is a must-do for people of all ages!
