Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk
The Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, is one of the most popular things to do in Sydney, and for good reason. Passing along the beaches of the Eastern suburbs, this walkway has amazing views of some of the most popular and beautiful beaches in Sydney. Starting from Bondi, the walkway passes through Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly, Gordon Bay and Coogee beaches. Not only does the walkway provide views of the cliffs and coast, but also the incredible houses with ocean views, costing millions of dollars.
The Grounds of Alexandria
The Grounds are one of Sydney’s top spots for coffee, food, patisseries and drinks. A popular location due to the events that are regularly hosted. The Grounds often have themed events including, Disney, holidays (Easter, Christmas, Halloween) and current film releases. During these events, the Grounds of Alexandria will be filled with huge props and decorations, making for an amazing atmosphere and stunning photo opportunities.
Nestled at the top of the Eastern suburbs, in Sydney Harbour National Park, Camp Cove is a secluded beach, popular with locals. During the week, the beach is quiet and the perfect spot to relax in the Sydney sun. However, at weekends the beach will often be full with locals and families.
North Sydney Olympic Pool
The best location to swim in Sydney. The Olympic pool located in Milsons Point, North of the CBD, the pool sits almost directly under the Harbour Bridge with direct views of the Opera House as well. The pool has a sun deck for soaking up the sun and plenty of seats in the bleachers that directly look over to the CBD and Circular Quay. The pool can be accessed by ferry from Circular Quay or by train from the CBD.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
One of the most iconic bridges in the world and possibly the main attraction in Sydney. The Sydney Harbour Bridge stands over Circular Quay, directly opposite the Opera House, connecting the CBD to the Northern Suburbs. There are many ways to take in the views of Sydney Harbour Bridge;
- Below from: Dawes Point Park, Bradfield Park, Luna Park.
- By boat: Sydney ferries, or harbour cruise
- By foot: You can walk across the bridge for FREE!
- From above: Bridge Walk, Pylon Lookout
Sydney Opera House
The most iconic building in Sydney, sitting proudly in Circular Quay, the Opera House is the biggest tourist attraction in Sydney. Take a tour inside, watch a concert or take in the sails from the outside.
Sydney Botanical Garden
Directly next to Sydney CBD and the Opera House, the botanical gardens are the perfect place to relax or take a stroll in the sun.
Take a sunset cruise around the harbour, go for cocktails or grab dinner, Darling Harbour is the perfect place for a social evening in the city.
Just a short ferry ride from Circular Quay, visit Manly beach for a chilled day at a small beachy suburb.
Hermitage Foreshore Walk
One of my favourite spots in Sydney. The foreshore starts in the suburb of Vaucluse, running along the beaches up to Watsons Bay. Along the foreshore are some of the most quiet beaches, with views overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
