Opera House to Royal Botanic Gardens through Darling Harbour
Things to see and do in Sydney tips – Firstly, there are the city’s landmarks: these include the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. It’s really impressive when you are standing in front of something you have only seen before in pictures or on TV. If you want to see more than these landmarks, your options are many. One thing you can do is to visit a play in the Opera House. This is quite affordable if you manage to buy the tickets early enough, don’t mind watching a play in the afternoon and don’t want to sit in the first row.
Another idea which is free is to walk across the Harbour Bridge. This will also help you gain an understanding of how long the bridge actually is. If you are seeking a thrill, then why not have a go at Climbing the Harbour bridge and check out their website Bridge Climb Sydney for more details. Prices vary and there are many promo codes and deals if you search on the internet! The last time we checked it cost approximately $278-303 in the day time and in the evening prices were approx $238-268 (May 2016).
You can go and see the the little boutiques in Paddington, or the little second-hand bookshops in Glebe, go for a coffee in Darlinghurst or explore Newtown. The parks in Sydney are also perfect for a walk. We recommend you to visit the Royal Botanical Gardens. Here you will find thousands of bats and cockatoos! You will also have a beautiful view of the Opera House.
Another Things to see and do in Sydney tip If you like markets and tat, then you should definitely plan a trip to Paddy’s Market. this market takes place between Thursday and Sunday in Chinatown.
