Sydney Sightseeing

Sydney is a big city, full of many wonders to explore but, where do you start? How do you make the most of your time in Sydney? Don’t worry, we’ve put together our top five Sydney sightseeing ideas for you so you can take your pick or even try a few if you have time.


1. Sydney Tower Eye

There is no other place in Sydney where you will be able to see so much of the city from one place. Standing as the tallest observation deck in Sydney at 250m above ground, you will have 360-degree views of Sydney, and on a clear day can even see the famous Blue Mountains that are located over 80km away. Don’t know what to see in Sydney? Don’t worry, our interactive touchscreens and visitor guide will highlight all of Sydney’s amazing sights and even a few hidden ones too.


2. Boat Hopping

Want to see Sydney from the water? While you can jump on a public ferry to take you across the famous harbour, why not consider a harbour cruise? These cruises are designed to show you Sydney from the water. With a number of islands located in Sydney Harbour, such as Fort Denison and Shark Island, a harbour cruise can take you to places that the public ferry system doesn’t. Why not combine a visit to Sydney Tower Eye with a harbour cruise, plus more, where you can see Sydney from the land, water and sky – it is the ultimate Sydney sightseeing ticket!


3. Kayaking Around the Harbour

Considered by most people as the most beautiful harbour in the world, what better way to explore it than spending a few hours out on the water on a kayaking tour, taking in the harbour’s hidden coves and other beauty spots that you can’t get to by boat. Most tours are suitable for beginners with no experience, but you do require a reasonable level of fitness. You could also just hire a kayak and go out on your own if you are more experienced.


4. Big Bus Tour

Prefer to explore the city on dry land? Check out Big Bus Sydney, where you can choose between two sightseeing routes (The City Tour or The Bondi Tour). Aboard the open top bus there is free wifi so you can instantly upload your favourite pics to social media or send to your friends and family. You will see and learn about many iconic Sydney sights as you are taken to over 30 different spots. Why not combine your ticket to Sydney Tower Eye with a Big Bus tour and a number of other great Sydney attractions?


5. Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk

Heading to the world famous Bondi Beach? Take a leisurely stroll from Bondi to Bronte. It is just 1.5kms and will only take an hour if you stop along the way at some of the vantage points to soak up the stunning coastline and cliff tops. If you’re lucky you may even spot some whales or dolphins.
