Rest of the day at leisure - why not check out one of the top 5 things to do in Sydney, as ranked by other travellers on TripAdvisor.
* Sydney Harbour - Is considered one of the world’s most beautiful harbours. Secluded beaches and quiet coves dot the harbour and on nice days the water is covered in sailboats; then there are the massive cruise ships weaving their way to the docks. Circular Quay is the launch point for ferries to Manly and sightseeing tours around the harbour. To one side of the Quay lays the historic site of The Rocks, and on the other are the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House. Sydney Harbour forms the backdrop to a number of spectacular events staged on or around this waterway including Vivid Sydney and New Years Eve when light installations are set up from the Sydney Opera House through Circular Quay to The Rocks and Walsh Bay.
* Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk - This is a well-maintained and wonderful walk for the whole family—but allow an afternoon for it! You can take your time and leisurely stroll along this gorgeous trail (although there are several changes in elevation so being in moderate shape might help on the hills). I would recommend wearing layers because it can vary from being warm enough for shorts and a t-shirt one minute to cool and breezy the next as you move into and out of shady spots. If you get too warm you can always stop for a swim at Bondi, Tamarama, Bronte or Coogee beaches, and there are a number of water fountains and even a few cafes along the way if you get thirsty. It’s approximately a 6km walk which takes around 2 hours at a good pace. Don’t forget your hat and sunscreen!
* The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk - If you’re looking for a very leisurely and well-maintained walk along the water then this is the one for you. Some people might consider it a bit of a long walk (I’d recommend bringing some water), but on a beautiful day its great to get outdoors! There are spectacular views along the walk and once you reach Mrs. Macquarie Point you have a sweeping view of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge - perfect for a photo op. If you do this walk early in the morning or late in the day you might even catch a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Just make sure you grab your comfortable walking shoes!
* Royal Botanic Gardens - You can’t come to Sydney and not check out the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens ! These gardens are an absolute must-see and are situated on the shores of Sydney Harbour , right by the Sydney Opera House. These are the oldest botanic gardens in Australia. Its collection of plants comes from around the world but there is a focus on species from Australia and the South Pacific. There are plenty of things to do at the Gardens, such as free guided walks that leave from the Visitor Information Centre, daily at 10:30am and Monday – Friday at 1pm.
* This Top 5 list wouldn’t really be complete without the Sydney Harbour Bridge , so here it is, the most famous bridge in Australia ! It’s located exactly opposite the Sydney Opera Houseand spans the city centre to the North Shore. This bridge is both functional and beautiful and the more daring can experience a climb to the top with BridgeClimb. If that’s not your thing, take a lovely walk along the bridge or enjoy magnificent views from the Pylon Lookout.
