So what makes Sydney so great?
If this is your first time to Sydney, let us set you up with some nifty suggestions to get the most out of your stay. First up, get your appetite in order because Sydney is one major foodie town. Great bars, fabulous yum cha, vibrant cafes – do brunch like a local and you’ll get the picture. Another way to get a bit of local insight while taking in the sights is by exploring Sydney via the public bus network. It’s super affordable and gets you right into the heart of Sydney, exploring unexpected pockets of this scenic city. Speaking of affordable, while Sydney might have a flashy, cash-splashing reputation, you’ll be amazed just how much of this gorgeous harbour town can be enjoyed on a budget, from cruising to snorkelling to book-fuelled café culture. You can have a million-dollar time for just a handful of change.
The beauty of Sydney as a holiday destination is its versatility – it’s a thriving city, perfect for urban adventures, but it’s just as suited to nature lovers thanks to its gardens, zoos and surrounding landscape. It’s great for families, ideal for weekend getaways – and it’s always camera-ready!
