As the capital of New South Wales (but not of Australia, as some people seem to think), Sydney is one of Australia’s largest cities and there are endless streets full of shops, restaurants, and bars. It’s easy to get lost here, but the waves of Bondi and Manly beaches are never too far away. Grab your camera and take in the sights.
Circular Quay has everything a tourist needs; it’s a busy transport hub full of souvenir shops, waterfront cafes and world-famous landmarks. Take a stroll along the waterfront past the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Sydney Opera House, it’s surreal to see something so famous in real life that most of us only ever see in pictures or movies.
You can catch a short ferry ride from Circular Quay past the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House to the northern suburb of Manly with its own golden strip of sand and great waves. Spend an afternoon here away from the craziness of downtown and the crowds of Bondi beach, rent a surfboard and get into the shark-free water.
This world famous surf break is an iconic Sydney attraction, and rightly so. This place has it all, the wide golden beach has plenty of room for locals and sunburned tourists alike, perfect waves, coastal walks, shopping markets, and an amazing nightlife. If you want to avoid the bluebottles take a swim seafront pool of the Bondi Baths.
