Sydney is not only about sport and sea, yes it’s a bit of an exhibitionist with glittering playground, sun-burnt beaches, colossal harbor and the open Pacific. Today Sydney comprises of 4.5 million inhabitants that makes it one of the most liveable cosmopolitan cities of the world, truly a multiethnic hub of creativity, culture, and business. Beyond its audacious beauty lies an array of electric pleasures so book whooping
Take the Bondi to Coogee Walk – Enjoy the spectacular walks and coastlines, where the routes take to some of the iconic beaches of Sydney. In late spring check out the free sculpture by the sea. Keep your hiking boots ready as well as your things because there are two excellent coastal walks that kick off from Central Sydney: Bondi to Bronte (6 km) and Manly Scenic Walkway (10km). Therefore quickly acquire potential discounts by looking for cheapest flights.
Stroll at the Sydney Harbour Bridge – Whether you want to drive over it, climb it, rollerblading across it or sailing under it, Sydneysiders adores their bridge and swarm around it like ants on ice cream. It has been dubbed as the ‘old coat hanger’, like a spooky object-moving around the town, you are sure to catch a sight of it and get frightened. Why pay $200 (£130) to climb up the Harbour Bridge when you can snap up some breathtaking views by walking across it while holidaying in Sydney.
Make Use of Free Tours – To take a view of the city, it is tough to beat a local guide especially when it is for free. You can take a three-hour walking tour accompanied by savvy locals which are sheer fun. Find out about such guides which are hard to miss, all thanks to their lime T-shirts at Sydney Town Hall.
Go for a Swim – Take a dip in one of Sydney’s 30 outdoor ocean pools in a classic Aussie style. The warm water is enough for year-round swimming and is sinfully free which is tough to believe. One of the atmospheric pools is Bronte Bath which was built in 1887 that overlooks the equally lovely Bonte Beach so get the best deal and book last minute flights.
Try a Botanical Escape – It is an oasis of calm because Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens is a perfect escape from the hectic downtown area. Within the park, there is the imposition colonial government house where entry is free, a kind of pint-sized Buckingham Palace that is bordered by manicured gardens and one of the free things to do in Sydney.
Visit Free Art Galleries – You can easily spend a day wandering around the NSW Art gallery that has a vast collection of Asian masterpieces as well European Impressionists, colonial works and aboriginal. For a contemporary art don’t miss the newly renovated Brett Whitley Studio and MCA.
