Getting The Most Out Of Your Trip In Australia.
Travelling Australia can be one of the most exciting trips you have planned, or one of your yet to tick off bucket list activities. But how are you suppose to know how to get around? where to stay? what to eat? and what to do in the large country ‘Down Under’ of Australia.
In particular the one of countries biggest city, Sydney.
Accommodation can one of the most expensive aspects of your traveling journey (besides flights), but thanks to websites like Airbnb.com , and Hotel Trivago.com you’ll find yourself the perfect accommodation suited to your comfort level. Weather it sharing a room with 6 other people or would an apartment to yourself in the city centre your sure to locate exactly what your looking for.
Looking for a place to stay in Sydney can range from as cheap as $20/night to up to $300+ in the inner city hotels, it is important that you plan accomodation when in Sydney at least a few hours prior. Although it is a relatively safe location beware where you keep your luggage when in certain places (I personally have experienced stolen luggage while in Sydney).
I found Sydney full of locations that invite you into the city lifestyle, food, activities, festivals, shopping, attractions, you name it Sydney has it. The city leaves you with abundant choices both day and night.
During the Day: My favourites
Sydney Fish Market was one of my most favourite days out, the amazing array of seafood, buzzing atmosphere (especially on weekends) and friendly people makes this location a must visit. If your after a quick meal or a brunch by the seaside the fish market has you covered!
The Bondi to Coogee walk will leave you with a full day of cliff top coastal track that extends 6km across Sydney’s eastern suburbs. With cafes, restaurants, parks, cliff’s, bays, rock pools and a cemetery your sure to find your next Instagram post here.
Sydney’s Zoo’s and Aquariums leaves families with a full day out keeping the little ones entertained for hours. Taronga Zoo has over 4,000 animals and 20 keeper talks, combine that with a late afternoon visit to Sea Life Sydney Aquarium with the world first ride through penguin experience and your left with an day you’ll never forget.
Ever wanted to learn to surf? Why not try now in the country known for its amazing beaches and perfect surf. Bondi Surf school will get you from beginner to pro in one day. Visit LetsGoSurfing for more info.
Night Life in Sydney:
Weather it be a walk down Circular Quay to view the city lights or to find the best dance floor in the city, Sydney is ready for you.
It’s tricky to find, but once you’re at Home, the bangers will be booming and you’ll be bouncing off the walls with a sweet view of the dazzling Darling Harbour lights glistening in your starry eyes.
Chinese Laundry is less about suds and more about superstars. Hosting the likes of Hudson Mohawke, Baauer, DJ Slink and other international dance legends, here’s where you can get lit, turnt and twisted like a wet towel.
Circular Quay is a colorful port where ferries and cruise ships board and depart, and boat watching can be as good a pastime as people watching. While street performers entertain outside, those wanting a more cultural experience can head into the Museum of Contemporary Art where a sculpture garden on the roof is as much a view as the waterways below
All in all Sydney’s day life and night life cannot get any better. My advice to fully emerge yourself into the Sydney life style, remain inside your budget by asking for help from locals - everyone in this city was happy to help and I even got away with borrowing a surfboard for the day for free! Without a doubt the best way to experience this amazing city is to get in between all the locals, take the hostel option and meet as many people as you can. After all traveling is about the experience not the location so make the most out of your time here by getting out and doing it all. I highly recommend it as any bucket list, must visit locations in the world, their backward ways intrigue me almost as much as their funky accents. Anyone is bound to love this place weather your on a tight budget or ready to splurge your cash to get the most of what Sydney has to offer.
