With its iconic landmarks, urban beaches, and diverse neighborhoods, Sydney has plenty to tempt travelers with, but there are some sights that can’t be missed.
See the city’s most recognizable landmarks up-close on a Sydney Harbour cruise; tick off more of the sights on a hop-on hop-off bus tour; or challenge yourself to the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb. For an unforgettable evening, watch a performance at the Sydney Opera House or have dinner at the top of the Sydney Tower. Be sure to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
Don’t forget to explore outside of the city too—the UNESCO-listed landscapes of the Blue Mountains are a popular choice of day trip, while wine lovers won’t want to miss a wine tasting tour of the Hunter Valley. See below for some must-do activities in Sydney.
