By day you may find yourself at one of the many coastal beaches, or on a harbor cruise. But, Sydney has no shortage of activities. Venturing further into the city will unveil bustling shopping centers and national parks. By night, it offers world class dining and exciting nightlife. It also hosts annual events, including the Mardi gras parade and New Year's Eve fireworks.

Visit Sydney Harbour: A must visit attraction in the city. Enjoy the Harbour on a cruise such as a Sydney Harbour Dinner Cruise, or fly over Sydney Harbour on a Helicopter Tour. If you're looking to be more active take a Sydney Harbour Kayak Tour.

The Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk: This cliff top coastal walk is considered one of the best walks in Sydney.  The walk is about 3.7 miles and will take you through beaches, parks, cliffs, bays and rock pools. 

The Sydney Opera House: Explore one of the most beautiful architectural masterpieces of Sydney with a visit to the famous Sydney Opera House. It offers guided tours entailing the history and story behind the fascinating structure, Opera performances, and various other events hosted there.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge: Whether you view the bridge from a harbor cruise, or take the Harbor Bridge Guided Walk yourself, the view of the harbor from the bridge is a must-see. If you’re an adrenaline-junkie, there is also a Bridge Climb available for an extra-special view of the harbor from the top of the bridge.

Visit Darling Harbour: This harbor is packed with entertainment, including the world’s largest IMAX cinema, a Ferris Wheel, and many restaurants stuffed into the popular weekend destination.

Royal Botanic Gardens Walks: What better way to welcome yourself to the city of Sydney than with a relaxed, peaceful walk along the seawall in the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens. Inhale the sweet Harbor air as you savor the wonderful view.

Blue Mountains: Soak in the Natural Beauty of one of Australia’s most famous natural wonders, the Blue Mountains. The surrounding area is divided into 8 conservation areas, each equipped with several bush walks. While it possible to visit for the day, many claim staying the night in the town to enjoy the highly acclaimed local food and watch the sun rise over the wondrous landscape.

James Craig Tall Ship: This attraction is the only fully restored authentic tall ship in the world that you can regularly sail on.  It sails from the Harbor past the Sydney Harbour sites out through the Sydney Heads.
