Sydney is one of the world’s best cities to study and a beautiful place to live. Below we have picked out 8 things to do in Sydney at least once, why don't you take advantage of this long holiday weekend to try one.


Ride Luna Park’s ferris wheel

Luna Park has been one of most interesting destinations in Sydney as it shines with beautiful festivals, cotton candies as big as your head (or even bigger) and the glittering ferris wheel. This is one of the best places in Sydney to hang out with your friends or someone special for the whole day.


Dine on Sydney’s tallest tower




Does the revolving restaurant concept appeal to you? Sydney Tower Eye is the tallest building in Sydney with a really great 360-degree panoramic view of the beautiful city. You can go to the observatory or challenge yourself to Sydney’s highest outdoor adventure with Skywalk. If you want to rejuvenate with a drink, 360 Bar and Dining Restaurant will bring you an exquisite dinner menu along with some famous wines served in an unforgettable setting.


Take a picnic to the Royal Botanic Garden

There is much to see and do at the Royal Botanic Garden. It brings you awesome views over Sydney Harbour along with 30 hectares of diverse animal and plant species and many classic sculptures in the gardens. Unsurprisingly, it is praised as a picnic paradise, a heaven for garden lovers, a place to relax and daydream and a fantastic place for artists and art-lovers. And it’s so close to the city that you can give it a visit at lunch break. Enjoy a picnic, take free guided walks or book an Australian Aboriginal heritage tour guided by experienced guides.


Enjoy performances at the Opera Sydney House



 We had great time at Sydney Opera House as part of our excursion.


Visit Sydney Opera House and see what is under its sails at least once. There are many performances throughout the year, from opera to dance to concerts. You can watch a show, take a backstage tour or enjoy wine and food in a variety of bars and restaurants.


Take a ferry to Manly



 Our February monthly excursion to Manly Beach


A 30-minute ferry journey to Manly has always been on the list of best things to do in Sydney since 1855, and this is still the best way to reach Sydney’s most beautiful Northern beaches. Catch a ferry from Circular Quay, take in the sparkling waters of Sydney Harbour and admire historic sites such as Kirribilli House, Mrs Macquarie’s Chair and Fort Denison along the way.


Ride a horse in Centennial Park

Choose a sunny day and take a horse riding class at Centennial Park. Then enjoy a picnic next to one of the park’s many ponds, strolling around the picturesque and iconic park.

Dive deep into the sea… without getting wet. The Australian National Maritime Museum has a handful of great exhibits, but the star attraction may be jumping abroad one of the famous vessels such as the HMAS Vampire and HMAS Onslow.


Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Spanning Sydney Harbour at a maximum height of 134 metres, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world’s largest steel arch bridge and one of Australia’s most popular destinations. There are many ways to enjoy this dazzling construction – for example, join a paid bridge tour and feel the incredible height of the bridge on the way to the summit; or walk to the Pylon Lookout for a bird’s eye view of the city. Or simply walk across the bridge, which is a great way to spend time in Sydney and will take you about 15 minutes.
