What to do in Sydney

Sydney Harbour is another favourite with tourists. The iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House are found within close proximity. While a ferry in the direction of Manly is a cheap way to see them from a new angle, taking a helicopter or seaplane tour can be worthy alternatives.

From Circular Quay, there are a number of other areas worth checking out. The Rocks, one of Sydney's most historic suburbs, is just a short walk away, and Darling Harbour is also easy to get to on foot. Some of the city's trendier suburbs can also be walked to, but the train system makes it easy to get to the likes of Newtown and Surry Hills.

Enjoy Sydney like a local with these five insider tips.

Although Sydney is Australia's biggest city, it has plenty of natural attractions too. As well as the Botanics and the many parks close to the city centre, a day trip out to the Blue Mountains, the Jenolan Caves or the Royal National Park all add something different to your itinerary.

Whether you want to escape the heat or the rain or simply add some culture to your visit, Sydney has some of Australia's most loved galleries. The Art Gallery of New South Wales is one of the biggest, while the Museum of Contemporary Art is something extra to enjoy at Circular Quay.

Best time to visit

Sydney experiences its warmest weather from December through to February. If you're planning to visit the beaches, it's best to go at the end of this time when the water is at its warmest.

As the summer is the Sydney's busiest time, you may find accommodation more expensive during this time. Visiting in spring or autumn can lower the price of your holiday considerably.
