Sydney Sights

There is a lot to see and do in Sydney. You don’t have to travel far to discover a city in love with water activities.

As well as Sydney Harbour being one of the worlds finest, Sydney has some of the most well-known beaches, such as the surfer's heaven, Bondi Beach.

You don't have to travel far from the city to put yourself into the Royal National Park or the fringes of the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage Area. These are wild and rugged tourist attractions where you can go on a real nature tour and bushwalk, hike and camp in rainforests, wetlands and eucalypt woodlands, all cradled by sandstone gorges.

Sydney At NightSydney hosts many sights and tourist attractions. The most famous must be the Sydney Opera House, and the Sydney Harbour.

After you have viewed the harbour from the water, why not view it from above from the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Sydney Tower.

Sydney ViewSydney Tower has an observation deck 305 metres high, and also a restaurant if you feel up to it. It is in the Centrepoint Complex, market street and is open between 9.00am - 10.30pm (11.30pm on Saturday). On the ground there are wonderful views from Mrs Macquaries Point, Observatory Hill, Millers Point, or Blues Point reserve or Bradleys Head on the North Shore.

Sydney Town HallThe oldest Cathedral in Australia is in Sydney. St. Andrews Cathedral is an Anglican Cathedral built in around 1874, the year that the Town Hall was built.

The Town Hall has a remarkable exterior and just as splendid interior, and so is well worth visiting. Just hop off the train at Town Hall, and you will easily find it.

Queen Victoria BuildingSydney also hosts a number of different architectural styles. In the centre you can find the Victorian 'Marble Bar', which is situated opposite the attractive Queen Victoria Building. On Market Street, you should also visit the Gothic State Theatre.

Martin Place is a key runner in the pole for the heart of the city. The pedestrian mall stretches from Macquarie Street to George Street, with plenty more to see other than shops. This includes a Cenotaph to commemorate the War, an amphitheatre and monumental financial buildings. Many of the buildings along Macquarie Street were commissioned by Lachlan Macquarie, realised by convict/architect Francis Greenway. There are also plenty of public buildings well worth seeing.

Cadmans Cottage, The RocksA great way to see Sydney is to hop on the informative Sydney Explorer Bus, or alternatively join one of the wonderful Sydney walking tours. There are also a number of Aboriginal tours around Sydney by Sydney Aboriginal Discoveries, where you can find out about the history of Aborigines in Sydney and Australia.
