Stroll the Sydney Harbour Bridge– The bridge was integrated in 1932 as a federal government work task during the Great Depression. Its steel frame has actually become an iconic symbol of the city. While tours that climb up the bridge are costly ($158 AUD), it is complimentary to stroll or bike throughout it for panoramic views of the harbor and Opera Home.
Marvel at the Sydney Opera Home– Just as iconic as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera Home is well-known for its white-shelled roof. As an architectural pleasure and accomplishment of engineering (getting the roofing system to remain up took the development of a complicated assistance system), directed tours ($37 AUD) provide you a whole new gratitude for just how challenging the structure was to create and put up. Tickets for a program in the Opera Home are surprisingly cost effective ($43 AUD), so aim to take one in if you can.
Visit the Blue Mountains– Over the millennia, the ancient sandstone of this national forest has been weathered into gorges lined by high cliffs and separated by narrow ridges. Some activities in Blue Mountains National Park consist of seeing the spectacular rock formation of the Three Sis (particularly sensational at sunset and under night floodlights) or treking along the paths that use outstanding views of the valley, sheer rock walls, toppling waterfalls, and spectacular forests. The park is complimentary to go to and you can get there by train from Sydney, which takes 90 minutes. If you want to trek more afield, it’s best to stay over night!
See all the museums– Like most cities, Sydney has a wide range of museums. There’s totally free entry to the Art Gallery of New South Wales (modern art), the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia at The Rocks, the Nicholson Museum (antiquities), and the Australian National Maritime Museum at Beloved Harbor. I likewise recommend checking out the White Bunny Gallery (modern Chinese art; it likewise has a teahouse) and The Rocks Discovery Museum (local history); both are likewise complimentary.
