Australia has always been a tempting destination for the travel lovers. Sydney, on another hand, is a big city where you can find a bunch of landmarks. The widely known Opera House is just a little part of the list!
Of course, we should stat with it. A walk on the Circular Quay can give you the unforgettable panoramic view – who has never seen the magnificent Opera on a picture, on the TV or on a simple postcard? The feeling to watch the big architectural treasure od Sydney cannot be compared to anything else. Actually, maybe it could be – especially for the photographers, who need some inspiration – the Botanical garden offers the best view. The garden is the perfect place to relax while watching the Sydney sun; even in the winter!
Sydney Tower is the tallest building in the city, the third one in Australia and the second tallest observant tower in the southern hemisphere. Through its glass-floor Skywalk 286 metres above the ground, you can look directly down at the bustling streets and the city’s main attractions. Also, the view can reach even the Blue Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
Queen Victoria Building was built in 1890 for a city market but in 1986 was reconstructed and transformed into a popular shopping centre – home of clothes and jewellery stores, cosy cafes and luxurious restaurants.
Cockatoo Island is a little bit different type of landmark in Sydney and is good to include it in our must-visit list. Between 1839 and 1869 it was a prison and later it becomes part of UNESCO World Heritage. You can get to the island by a ferry from Sydney. Also, you can rent a tent for the night.
Located close to Sydney’s harbour, Taronga Zoo’s entrance is connected to the harbour via a long cabin lift. What can you find there? Kangaroo, Tasmanian Devil, Koala, Emul, Prunks, Crocodiles, Snow Leopards, Giraffes, Zebras, Elephants and more …
Let’s continue our walk to find another beauty. The best thing about walking the length of the Sydney Harbor Bridge is that you can see everything because the angle of your view constantly changes as you go. The harbour is in close proximity to downtown Sydney. This is one of the largest areas where you will find numerous wonderful restaurants, shops and great entertainment venues.
