With that being said, let us now focus on the things that you should definitely do when you visit this welcoming city in the following sections-
Why not go and visit the Blue Mountains?
If you are in the mood for some adventure then don’t forget to visit the Blue Mountains which is a National Park located a mere 50 Kilometers West of Sydney. The National Park covers an area of more than ten thousand Kilometers and houses the largest collection of Eucalyptus trees.
The National Park gets its name from the natural phenomenon of a blue haze that hangs over the mountains in the area, a result of eucalyptus oils dispersed into the air from the trees.
Furthermore, the National Park has four places of interest. They are as follows:
- The Katoomba Scenic Railway
- The Three Sisters Rock formation
- The Jenolan Caves
- The Jamison Valley
Manly Ferry Ride is a once in a lifetime experience
One of the most common things for a local here in Sydney is to take a Manly Ferry Ride. They use the ferry every day, without fail to reach their office and back. Now, it may sound boring at first but when you are here as a tourist, you should not miss it!
Hop on to the ferry and you will witness all major attractions of the city smoothly pass you by. We are talking about:
- The bridge
- Sydney’s iconic Opera House
- The Taronga Zoo
- Harborside beaches (Shark Beach to be exact and Camp Cove – one of the best places in the city to go for bar hopping, indulging in local delicacies, snorkelling and shopping).
