Caitlin: Major Attractions
Sydney is a huge city, so it’s not hard to find something exciting to do, especially on the weekends. Here is a list of some of my favorite things I have done in Sydney so far:
- Glebe Markets: The Glebe Markets occur every Saturday and offer a variety of vintage clothing, art, and food vendors. This is a great place to go if you want something to do that isn’t “touristy,” as many locals attend and sell at this event. If you like trying new foods, there is amazing Turkish food here!
- Taronga Zoo: Taronga Zoo is the perfect place to go if you’re traveling alone or in a group. Not only is it exciting to see all the native animals, but the views of the Sydney Harbor are amazing, especially on a clear, sunny day. There is a sky lift that takes you above the exhibits so you can look down below at the elephants and out at the Sydney landscape.
- Sydney Harbor/Circular Quay: Sydney Harbor is what everyone thinks of when they think Sydney. From here, you see the Sydney Harbor Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Sydney Harbor is impressive both in daylight and in the dark when the bridge and opera house are lit up. While you’re here, check out a show in the opera house and have a nice kangaroo dinner at the Meat and Wine Co Circular Quay. You won’t regret it!
- Darling Harbor: Darling Harbor is home many attractions, including the Sea Life Aquarium and Wild Life Zoo, which are perfect activities to do on a rainy day as they are inside. Although very small, the aquarium and zoo are good places to see animals native to Australia. Darling Harbor is also a pretty area to explore, see all the boats, and maybe even take a cruise.
- Bondi to Coogee Beach Walk: I would definitely recommend a coastal walk on a nice day. The Bondi to Coogee walk is about 6km and takes around 2 hours depending on how much you stop to enjoy the views, which I recommend doing! The walk takes you from the popular Bondi Beach along the coast, through other towns, including Bronte, to Coogee. Each beach is different and offer amazing views. If you do this tour, definitely stop at A Fish Called Coogee for some fish and chips before heading back to Bondi!

There has never been a better time than now to travel abroad.
