What to do in Sydney

By Naziah Ali Posted 11 Sep 2014

Australia’s largest city has an abundance of sights and suburbs for you to see. Handpicked are some of my favourites below.


Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens

Your first stop should be Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Set on 30 hectares on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the gardens have several themed areas from rare and threatened plants, to a tropical garden and a romantic rose garden. Entry is free and, if the weather is clear, snap a sensational selfie with the Sydney Harbour as the backdrop from Mrs Macquarie’s Chair.

Simple strolling is also rewarding in Sydney, as it’s peppered with monuments and reflected on the stunning waterfront. You can walk from the Royal Botanic Gardens to the Sydney Opera House which gives you a perfect view of the Harbour Bridge, against the Sydney skyline.


The Art Gallery of New South Wales

If you’re interested in art then the Art Gallery of New South Wales boasts five levels of Australian, Aboriginal, European, Asian and contemporary art that won’t cost you a cent. It’s only a stroll over from the Botanical Gardens, overlooking the Harbour.

Cockatoo Island

Leaving the shores is also an option, via a 10-minute (and under 10 dollar) ferry ride from Circular Quay to Cockatoo Island (which is situated in the middle of Sydney Harbour). The heritage-listed island and its buildings are steeped in history. Once a prison and later a shipyard, Cockatoo Island currently offers ‘glamping’ or glamorous camping if you’re enticed to stay the night (and have some extra cash to burn).



A popular suburb to visit in Sydney’s inner west is Newtown. The quirky, bohemian inner city suburb is only a few train stops from the city centre. Unlike its name suggests, Newtown recalls a bygone era with its quaint heritage listed buildings and vintage store fronts. 

Newtown’s King Street, dubbed ‘Eat Street’, sports numerous cafes and restaurants from various cultures. Any one of these makes the perfect spot to sit down, indulge in a bite and perfect the completely costless sport of people-watching.

Getting around Sydney’s CBD for free

The 555 shuttle bus is a free ride around town for keen sightseers. The bus runs every 10 minutes and stops at a number of destinations between Sydney’s main train station – Central and Circular Quay. It operates from 9am to 6pm.
