Sydney Must Visits – You Can’t Go Home Without Seeing These Icons of Sydney

Heading to Australia this summer? Here are some must-see places in the country’s capital!

1

The Sydney Opera House

Having been completed in the early seventies, The Sydney Opera House is considered to be a hallmark of the country’s technical and creative expertise, and is located alongside the harbour on Bennelong Point. Its construction was a considerable challenge and spanned over a lengthy sixteen years in total, becoming the source of much public debate and controversy among the locals due to the heavy expenditure that was being incurred. This iconic attraction has been the symbol of Australia for decades, featuring hundreds and thousands of tourist merchandise from postcards and plaques to keyrings and shot glasses. You can’t visit Australia and not pay a visit to the Sydney Opera House, the most globally recognised of all of the country’s attractions. If you are staying at an apartment / hotel in Sydney such as the Oaks On Castlereagh or any similarly located establishment, visiting this site will be a breeze, as it is likely to be under a ten minute drive away.

Bondi Beach

Beat the summer heat with the trip to Bondi Beach, situated in New South Wales along Australia’s East Coast. The name of the beach traces its origins back to the word ‘Boondi’, which, in the Aboriginal tongue, loosely translates as the “noise of water breaking over the rocks”. Bondi Beach is one of Australia’s most famous ones, and is located in one of the more well-to-do suburbs of the capital. Due to the immense popularity of this public beach, it can get quite crowded, especially during the summer months when locals flock here in hoards to try and get some reprieve from the sweltering heat by taking a dip in its clear, azure waters. If you’re planning on making a trip here during your holiday, the best option transport-wise, might be to either use public transport or get yourself dropped off here, since parking can be a real problem; with the only options likely to be either parking a long way away from the beach, or paying through the nose by the hour for parking spots within close proximity.

Sydney Tower Eye

Fancy a 360 degree view of Sydney’s skyline? Climb up to the top of Sydney Tower Eye. This attraction was previously called Centrepoint Tower, and is an ideal way to get a good understanding of the layout of the capital as well as all that it offers. It also provides a great backdrop for some stunning selfies. When you get to the top, be sure to take advantage of the complimentary binoculars that are available, in order to get and up-close view of the parts of the city that you find interesting.
