A trip to Australia would not be complete without visiting Sydney, a vibrant city with exciting experiences waiting for you. Which is why we have listed 5 things to do in Sydney Australia that you just can’t miss!


1.Hop on Hop off Sydney

One of the best ways to go around and see all that Sydney has to offer is definitely on board of a hop on hop off bus tour.

You can also take a tour to learn all about the architecture and history behind the postcard of Australia.

4.Paddington markets

If shopping is your thing then make your way to Paddington district. There you’ll find plenty of independent shops with local designs and an open air market on saturdays.

Unarguably one of our favourite things to do in Sydney Australia is browsing through a huge variety of stalls. From handmade jewelry to beautiful linen and silk clothings, artisanal soaps and other unique pieces. At the Paddington markets there is something for everyone and the good news is that it’s free to enter.

And crafts are not the only thing around here, as there are also delicious food stalls to lose yourself in trying to pick where to have lunch.

5.Bondi beach

Just 20 minutes outside Sydney’s CBD, Bondi Beach is the perfect place to relax in the golden sand or join the sporty vibe. You wouldn’t believe the crowds gathering here in a yoga position at sunrise! If you are into that, we recommend the Yoga By The Sea for a session right on Bondi Icebergs.

This is also where the Coogee Coastal Walk begins, slithering along rock pools and the quiet Tamarama and Bronte beaches. For a full Australian experience, why not book a surfing lesson for a fun afternoon catching waves like a true Sydneyite?
