Unlike trips to Europe which typically include visits to various cities and countries by means of planes and trains, trips to Australia are typically spent exploring the continent's most incredible cities and sites, all of which are of course in Australia. When visiting Sydney there is a lot to do both in and nearby the city. We've narrowed down the must-do activities in Sydney so that the next time you find yourself in Australia, you know what not to miss out on.
The two hour drive to 7 Mile Beach to learn how to surf is worth it. Here you can live in bungalows on the beach and surf day in and day out.
Be sure to make the one hour drive to the world famous Blue Mountains. Here, you can pick a trail and hike up. We promise, the views of the Great Dividing Range are worth it.
Head over to The Rocks for a pub crawl on a Friday. Delicious food options are on every cobblestone street, along with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
Head from The Rocks to the beloved George Street in Sydney’s Central Business District for some great shopping. Sydney Westfield, the Queen Victoria Building, and the Strand Arcade are the top places to shop here.
