5 Reasons You Have to Visit Sydney
Sydney is one of the most vibrant and iconic cities in the world. Its stylish backdrop is complemented by an array of shopping outlets, art galleries, and incredible beaches, not to mention the great feats of architecture that grace many a postcard. So, if you haven’t already thought about visiting Sydney, here’s why you should.
Sydney Opera House
First things first, the Sydney Opera House is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the world, rising up in a quirky design that casts a futuristic silhouette across Sydney. There are plenty of Sydney Day Tours to the Opera House, where visitors can learn about the history of the building, its cultural importance in the city, and, of course, watch one of the world-class performances that take place there throughout the year.
The Great Galleries and Museums
Though Sydney is often overlooked in favour of Melbourne when it comes to art and culture,
it actually has a huge amount of galleries and museums. In the city centre, you’ll find great bastions of modern art like the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, as well as more factual museums like the Australian Museum and the Sydney Museum.
The Beautiful Beaches
As well as a hearty dose of culture, Sydney Tours also showcase some of the city’s
incredible beaches. Wherever you are in the city, you’re never far from a beach laden with white sandy shores and glistening waters. For some coastal fun, there’s the opportunity to swim, dive, and snorkel, as well as surf, sail, and sunbathe - all great ways to enjoy the Australian sun.
The Shopping Scene
Sydney is a shopaholics dream, with plenty of outlets and malls to explore. As well as high-end designer shops and artisan crafts stores, you can also browse a huge collection of
souvenir shops, jewellery stands, and boutique art stores. At the weekend, the city hosts a selection of quirky markets, each one offering up a slice of laid back Sydney life.
The Picturesque Parks
If you ever get tired of the beach, Sydney has a number of beautiful parks and gardens to kick back and relax in. The Royal Botanic Gardens are a firm favourite amongst locals and visitors, whilst Hyde Park offers a slice of natural life in the heart of the city centre. Just outside the city there are a whole host of national parks filled with exciting flora and fauna waiting to be explored, too.
