Sydney Opera House

I AM FREE walking tours
Every city has a story to tell. We are lucky most of big cities around the world have a city enthusiast offering free tours. Take advantage of 3-hour walking tour around the CBD, yes you need comfortable shoes. It explores all main historical sites, is filled with facts and stories. They offer 3 tours. Starting at Town Hall at 10.30 am and 2.30 pm. Plus 1-hour walk of the Rocks at 6 pm.
Sydney Harbour & Bridge
You can climb the Bridge at the price, but you can walk it and cross it for free. Bridge Pylon Lookout, 87meter or 200 steps from sea level, is offering stunning views but also exhibits documenting the building of the bridge. A comfortable way to explore the Harbour and see Opera House and Bridge is by cruise. During a three hour Sydney sights cruise you can enjoy a lunch or morning tea. This can be combined with whale watching during the season.
Taronga Zoo Sydney is Australia’s largest zoo, located in the suburb of Mosman, on the shores of Middle Harbour.
It was officially opened on 7 October 1916. Divided into eight areas, the 28-hectare Zoo is home to over 4,000 animals of 350 species, from different continents. Nearby you can also explore Cliffton Gardens and take a walk to Middle Head for breathtaking views.
Royal Botanic Gardens
Not far from Circular Quay, you can find Botanic Gardens. Great location, great views, interesting collections.
The Herb Garden is based on the stories and traditions of the use of herbs as food, medicine and dyes.
We also recommend the Australian Rainforest Garden. The garden was built around the stately old specimens of Black Bean, Burdekin Plum and Pepperberry and has many species collected in the Australian Gondwanan Rainforest and Wet Tropics Rainforest World Heritage areas.
Northern Beaches stretch from Manly to Palm Beach. In general, they are less accessible. Manly beach is 30 min ferry ride from Circular Quay. A short walk through Corso, and you reach main ocean beach and protected Shelly beach to the right. On any day you will see people swimming, snorkelling, or surfing. Sand and the refreshing ocean breeze attracts 8 mil visitors a year. Locals love bush walking, the most popular being Manly – Spit walk, that takes you through harbour beaches, many lookouts, bush reserves with some sections on paved roads.
