Things to do in Sydney Australia

Walk with ChaMike in Sydney Australia.

Going to Sydney was merely a dream. A kind of dream I never thought would ever happen because I knew how expensive it was to score an airfare ticket and how difficult it was to get an Australian Visa. Although I already bought seat sale tickets via Cebu Pacific last year, I was still in denial since I had to wait for our visas to be processed. But after the long wait, when I finally got a hold of our visas (which was just sent via email btw) everything began to sink in. I was going to SYNDEY AUSTRALIA! And Mike and I were not just headed to a new country but also a new continent. Hurraaaay! We were both indeed blessed #thankyouLord

Sydney is a one-stop shop for tourists. This well developed city has a handful of things to offer - iconic sites (Sydney Opera House & Harbour Bridge), pristine beaches (like Manly and Bondi Beach), close encounter with Australia's unique animals (such as kangaroos and koalas) and well preserved nature sites (Blue Mountains & numerous gardens and parks) to name a few. Sydney is every wanderlust's dream and I'm glad Mike and I were able to tick this city off our travel wish list. So here are the list of the things we did in the famous city in OZ.

Admire the Iconic Sydney Opera House
Never leave Sydney without seeing the most iconic Sydney structure. You can also opt to watch a musical play, concert and even art galleries and museum inside this well-known landmark.

Appreciate the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Just beside the Sydney Opera House is another famous Sydney attraction. The Sydney Harbour bridge connects Sydney CBD with the North Shore. People can also climb the bridge for that ultimate unique Sydney experience.

Sydney Harbour Bridge
Swim or Learn to Surf at Bondi Beach
For beach bums, head over to Bondi Beach and learn to surf or you can just lounge by the shore together with tons of other sun worshippers around. You can also opt to visit the Icebergs and swim at their iconic pool or try dining at their restaurant.

Bondi Beach
Visit Manly Beach via Ferry
There is no better way to ride a harbor ferry than by going to Manly Beach. You will be greeted by all the shops at the Corso then you can take a dip at the beach or maybe, just maybe your partner might pop the question you've long been waiting for (just like what happened to me)

Manly Beach
Touch a Koala and feed the Kangaroos at Featherdale Wildlife Park
You can have a close encounter with these gentle creatures at this famous park an hour away from Central. But the long ride would be worth it when you are an animal lover as you can touch and even feed them yourself.

Bike around the famous Sydney Harbour, Sydney Botanical Park and Mrs Macquarie's Point
Sydney is a bike friendly city. If you love exploring the city via bicycle renting an hour or so would complete your Sydney wanderlusting.

Walk going to Angel Place, Lindt Cafe, Hyde Park & St Mary's Church
In Sydney, you'll enjoy walking (especially if it isn't summer) and discovering new things. Mike and I walked our way from our hotel in The Rocks toward Angel Place then Martin Place to try the Lindt Cafe. Strolled a bit more to check out Hyde Park and St Mary's Church. You can also visit the Sydney Tower and Queen Victoria Building in the area. (on separate post soon)

Hyde Park and St Mary's Church

Buy souvenirs Paddy's Market & Chinatown
For cheap finds head over to Paddy's Market and Chinatown in Central. Here, you can buy souvenirs and pasalubongs like the usual- keychains, ref magnet, t-shirt and a lot more you can give to your family and friends. (on separate post soon)

Market City

Even if Australia has no distinct Australian cuisine, that doesn't mean that they have no interesting and good food. Try the scones, kangaroo and emu pizza, fish and chips and many more (Read: Tea Cosy Sydney Australia and Grounds of Alexandria Sydney Australia)

Our five day stay in Sydney was indeed bitin. But because of #FOMO we were able to squeeze in all the famous attractions Sydney offers. Good thing I had with me my perfect travel buddy, Mike. We were really able to maximize our time in the country and I am thankful for having an on-the-go partner like him <3
