In my opinion, there are things to do in Sydney, however they are not the most exciting. If I were a tourist I don’t think I would come out of it and say “that was absolutely breathtaking”. It would be more of a “yeah, was good” kind of reaction. But that’s just me. If I were a celebrity I would be forced to say “Sydney was just AMAZING” otherwise I would get publicly slammed for my mediocre comment. I can just imagine the headlines already “Annie, gigantic bitch for not liking Sydney enough!”
The top place to visit is CQ in Sydney, down at the Harbour (at night it is prettier). It is the bustling place of Sydney, and the most touristy so don’t forget to say hi to your fellow tourists. Ferries depart from CQ to take you to all kinds of places like Taronga Zoo & Bondi Beach. Boats also depart for Whale Watching and exciting Jet Boating!
Beautiful gardens that are framed by Sydney Darling Harbour views. Best to go there on a beautiful sunny day (sunny days aren’t hard to find in Australia!) so you can enjoy a lovely peaceful picnic, free guided tour or a train scenic tour
The Rocks I would say is probably one of the ore funky places in Sydney. Lots of wonderful art galleries, dance theatres, cute cafes, police station (so be careful, but don’t worry, they won’t sentence you to death for smoking some pot) and fun shopping markets.
It used to be called Star City, but now it is changed to The Star, but people still call it Star City because we are too lazy to adapt to new changes. This is your hot spot for losing all your money…that’s about it. On the more positive side, it’s a real fayancy place and you can still have a lot of fun in there!
Newtown is a suburb in Sydney that is famous for its funky people with multicoloured hair and bright pink Doc Martens. Newtown Shops is home to offbeat designer outfits, out of date cameras, quirky vintage dresses, Persian rugs and shitloads of Thai restaurants. Go here and you’re bound to find something you adore.
