The gateway to Australia and Oceania’s cultural capital, Sydney is one of the world’s most popular tourist cities and a great destination for anyone looking to escape the chilly gloom of the British winter.
The only downside is that Sydney really is a world away, something that may cause many to right off a visit to this vibrant, sun drenched city. Don’t be too quick to dismiss a winter getaway in Sydney though because, whilst they can’t do anything about the 22 hour journey, DialAFlight are currently offering flights to Sydney this winter for as little £695*.
Visitors can see the world-famous opera house, relax on one of the nearby beaches or kick-back in a vibrant central bar. There are countless ways to see the city – but, if you only visit once, here are four things that you simply must do.
- Hop on the Manly Ferry: This scenic thirty-minute ferry ride will give you a fabulous view of the city harbour. Pick a clear day for the best vistas of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, and some great photos opportunities. Once at Manly, there are some great walks along the seafront – try taking the path down to Shelly Beach for more fabulous views and the chance to see a Manly Penguin.
- Bridge climb: For the more adventurous tourist, there’s a great way to see Sydney Harbour Bridge: Climb it. Organised climbs take place all year round; and, although the cost is steep and the period of preparation arduous, the experience is certainly worth it.
- Watch a film under the stars: Sydney’s fabulous weather allows visitors to engage in plenty of outdoor activities, and one of the most magical of these has to be the Open Air Cinema. Close to Mrs Macquaries Chair in the Royal Botanic Gardens, this huge screen has the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge as a backdrop. The cinema gets sold out almost every night, so make sure you buy tickets early in advance and arrive early to secure a place.
- Sunbathe on Palm Beach: Sydney is surrounded by beautiful beaches, but Palm Beach has to be one of the best. Just a short drive from Sydney Airport, it benefits from excellent infrastructure and is a popular stamping ground with celebrities and millionaires alike. Favourite tourist activities include taking a paddle boat down nearby Pittwater and seeing the area via seaplane.
