6 Things to Do in Sydney That are Free – Travelling on a budget

Sydney is not the cheapest city to travel in, but if you want to make your trip a memorable one without breaking a bank, there are many free things that you can make use of.

Free Walking Tours

Free Walking Tours

There is a free walking tour organized by 'I'm free walking tours' showing around the Sydney City Centre and 'The Rocks' region, that is the original settlement area of the Europeans in Sydney to the visitors. 'Sydney Greeters' provides a free tour guide service to take you to any place that you are interested in. The demand from the tourists for this service is very high, so you will need to make an advanced booking in order to make sure you get your own free guide. The Sydney Government House also facilitates free guided tours at every 30 minutes' interval from 10.30 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature

Enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature

It is only Mother Nature who can let you enjoy the true beauty of this world without a charge. She has been remarkably generous when she designed the Sydney shoreline with beautiful beaches and coastal walks. It will not cost you anything to spend some quality time basking in the sun at one of the beaches including the Manly Beach, Bondy Beach, and Balmoral Beach. The Sydney Harbour during the sunset is a sight that you do not want to miss. The walks from Coogee to Bondi, Split to Manly, and the Watson's Bay is also on top of the must-do list.

Sydney hosts more than 30 cultural events each year, both indoors and outdoors, including concerts, art festivals, parades, and parties. Most of these events are free to enter. Some of the most popular annual events are the Sydney Festival, Mardi Gras Parade, and the New Year's Eve. If you want to check regular updates on these events, hotels with free Wi-Fi facilities like Oaks Goldsbrough Apartments would be useful to stay in.

Take a leisurely stroll in the city

Walking is not only good for your health, but it is also healthy for your pocket. Exploring the city on foot is the best way to enjoy the city's best sights. You can watch the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and capture some photographs through the lens of your camera as a keepsake. The walk to the harbour would not be very long if you are staying at a Sydney Darling Harbour hotel. Sydney Botanical Garden and the Government House are also free to explore.
