Of Cultural Interest in Sydney
Sydney Opera House
(48)
The Sydney Opera House is, without question, an icon of the city. It was declared a World Heritage Site in 2007 and was built in 1957 under the direction of architect Jon Utzon. It is a modernist work and consists of several overlapping shells - an innovative piece of work that had a great impact worldwide on architecture. It was opened by Queen Elizabeth II of England. The Opera House shows a variety of opera, ballet, music and theater productions. It is home to the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. You can visit from 8:30 to 17:00 and take a guided tour, provided that there are no shows on. www.rodamons.net
Nature Reserves in Yulara
Ayers Rock (Uluru)
(4)
Uluru is one of those places that exceeds our capacity to understand. Its appearance changes with the time of day and your distance from it. It is, though, an amazing and worthwhile visit at least once in your lifetime. The best way to fully appreciate its size is to go walking around the base.You can discover the countless details of the surface of the rock. It seems to be almost a living thing that is constantly changing. I remember made the 9km route almost in a trance, not really believing what I was looking at nor understanding it. You can do sections of the trail which give a good idea of ​​what it's all about. It is said that this is the oldest human path on Earth and was walked by Australian Aborigines for thousands of years. For them it has a sacred meaning that is difficult to understand for non-aboriginal peoples and some parts of the trail are closed to the public since they're part of their sacred rituals. Do not miss out on the area of ​​Mala.
Beaches in Port Campbell
Twelve Apostles
(14)
Besides the famous Twelve Apostles, the whole Great Ocean Road has impressive cliffs, rocky formations sculpted over the sea of ​​great beauty. One of the most striking is called London Bridge. Originally it was a ledge over the sea with two arches, which seemed like a bridge built on purpose. A whimsy of nature. The fact is that in 1980 the central section of the "bridge" broke down, disconnecting it from the coast ... and trapping two hikers in its central part. It took several hours by helicopter to rescue them. Imagine how distressing it must have been waiting hours.
Viewpoints in Sydney
Sydney Tower
(12)
You can't miss the Sydney Tower's viewing platform if you come to this city. I went to Australia in 1994. I don't remember how much it cost, and in any rate, the price will have changed by now! But whatever it is, I promise you it's worth it. Here you'll have a view of the city that you simply can't get from any other point. You'll really understand the immensity of the city and its great position between the waters of the bay.
Bridges in Sydney
Sydney Harbour Bridge
(14)
This is the closest you could get to the harbour bridge in Sydney.
Cities in Brisbane
Brisbane
(8)
The state capital of Queensland is a nice city. It's a compromise between a large city and small town, but has a great quality of life. There are many gardens, parks, and river where you can get about by public transport and it even has an artificial beach. A great place to spend a few days during a trip to Australia with an excellent climate.
Nature Reserves in Blue Mountains
Blue Mountains National Park
(9)
A national park located just 80 km from Sydney. It really is amazing to see the three sisters, down the track to the foot of the mountains and enjoy a walk through the eucalyptus forest. It's pretty cold here, I think it was the only time I had to put on my fleece in my entire Australian journey, but it's worth it. It's amazing that so few kms from the city is such a magnificent national park. The name "Blue Mountains" is due to the bluish touch the mountains have from the vapour emitted from the eucalyptus trees. Near the viewpoint is a rail which is well worth having a look at, as it's the world's steepest and is simply spectacular. A really impressive place, if you go to Sydney you can't miss this!
Beaches in Sydney
Bondi Beach
(21)
This is definitely one of the best beaches I've ever been to...and only a couple miles from downtown Sydney! All of those little black spots you see in the water are surfers trying for one fo the colossal waves. The sand is soft and fine, the sun is radiant, and the oceanside walkway is a great options for those who get a bit restless at the beach. How do you get there? A.) take a bus from the city center - you catch the bus at the pier where the ferries leave, B.) train and bus - the train leaves you at Bondi Junction and you can get a bus that arrives in about 5 minutes, C.) taxi - it costs around $40.
Canyons in Alice Springs
The Olgas
(2)
The Olgas, also known by their original name of Kata Tjuta (meaning many heads), is a rock formation of the same origin as the nearby Uluru, and together form a single National Park. It is not a single monolith, but several formations of a similar height and rounded shapes. As in Uluru, its shape changes significantly as you approach them, and the trails are spectacular. It is about 25km from Uluru and the road connecting the two sites is the very best of the entire park. The largest one is known as the Valley of The Winds. It runs through the central canyon and provides spectacular views from its two balconies. The trail is named for the strong currents of wind that can traverse the valley at certain times.
Islands in Hervey Bay
Fraser Island
(7)
Fraser island is the largest sand island in the world and is just 45 minutes by ferry away from Hervey Bay.. It's 124 kilometers long and has an area of ​​163,000 hectares. There is a 35 kilometer-long beach that most use as a sort of highway to get to the various point of interest around the island. All vehicles on the island are 4-wheel drive so they can get through the thick vegetation at the island, There are trees over 200 years old and 40 meters high, freshwater lakes, a great diversity of birds (230 different species), and wild dingoes. The ferry from the coast to the island with the day tour costs $99 per person, which seems a little steep, but it's worth it. Go!
Beaches in Byron Bay
Byron Bay
(18)
Byron, as the Australians call it, is one of my favorite places in Australia. It is in Sydney, New South Wales, only one hour from the Gold Coast. Although I have visited many villages on the east coast of Australia, this one is my favorite, because not only is it quiet and beautiful, but it also has life! It is not as small as other towns and it has restaurants and pubs of all kinds. It is also frequented by the country's artists and intellectuals, often using it as a second residence to escape from the city. Another advantage of the town is that the beach is in the center, which is sometimes, surprisingly, hard to find in Australia. The most famous image of this town is the beach with its famous lighthouse in the background. It is a town frequented by backpackers and there are numerous hostels where it's not bad to stay. Since the 1960's, Byron has been a reference for hippie and alternative types in the country, although not to the level of Nimbin ... perhaps it's better to say more a surfing philosophy than hippie. It's worth spending a few days enjoying the town. You can try various sports, especially surfing, which is popular here thanks to the quality of the waves.
Beaches in Whitsunday Islands
Whitehaven Beach
(7)
Two hours on a boat from Airlie Beach plus two hours to enjoy the best beach one day equals one incredible day. Why is Whitehaven Beach considered the best beach on Earth? Well, the photos speak for themselves. The sand is find and white (it's almost like flour), the waters are amazingly clean and blue, and the simple lack of tourists all come together to make Whitehaven the top beach in the world. You can also get there on a small plane (though it's expensive). The only downside is that you can't spend more than a few hours there since it's a protected place. So, the "I'm going to spend the morning on the beach" plan won't exactly work at Whitehaven Beach. The only downside is that you'll spend the whole time wishing for more time.
Harbors in Sydney
Darling Harbour
(5)
A veritable amusement park in the center of Sydney, Darling Harbour extends around the Bay of Cockle and is home to many of the major attractions in Sydney. Originally, the port area was in decline, but Darling Harbour was the subject of an ambitious urban renewal project which was completed in 1988. With its bustling cafes, restaurants with stunning views, shops, walks, and green spaces, you will need a full day to explore it all!
Nature Reserves in Blue Mountains
Kangaroos in the Blue Mountains
(2)
Of course, being in Australia it is impossible not to interact with its unique wildlife, especially its most famous animal, the Kangaroo. Okay, yeah, you know that kangaroos jump and all that, but one imagines that they move rather comically and impractically, when in fact it is a super-efficient way to travel long distances using little energy. In the Blue Mountains there are many opportunities to see them in the wild (although you have to get away from the busiest areas for visitors), but if this proves too difficult, there are always the kangaroo farms that you can visit.
Zoos in Sydney
Featherdale Wildlife Park
(13)
To visit Australia and not see kangaroos or koalas is like not to have even gone. To see them, It's best that you go to the zoo of the city of Sydney. This park is wild because you can feed kangaroos and pet them, and let's not forget the adorable koalas. It's something out of the way, but the bus drops you off at the door. Stunning animals.
Harbors in Sydney
Circular Quay
(6)
Circular Quay is in the Sydney harbor area, where you can catch ferries to different places and beaches in the city. It is a very touristy place, always full of travelers and different people walking around and you can see some of the most iconic images of the city, including the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, from here. Often, there are lots of street musicians playing guitar, harp, clarinet or singing. Some of them do performances for tourists such as dances of the Aboriginal Australians, playing the famous didgeridoo and playing wooden tubes that make a peculiar sound. They also dance and paint ancient sacred drawings for souvenirs.
Zoos in Sydney
Sydney Aquarium
(9)
Sydney is a city that lives side by side with the ocean, which has allowed it to have one of the largest aquariums in the world. Situated in the port area of ​​Darling Harbour, near the Maritime Museum, it has over 11,000 species of marine animals, splitting into several areas: open ocean where you can see wild sharks, turtles and Platypus (Platypus), Great Barrier Coral, which is an impressive transparent tunnel you need to walk throuh, where you can see a variety of animals such as white sharks and stingrays (its size is the most important).
Roads in Melbourne
The Great Ocean Road
(11)
The coastal road linking Melbourne and Adelaide is perhaps one of the most spectacular roads in the world and it certainly ranks high on the list of Australian tourist attractions. The trip itself is about 1000 kilometers. There are so many things to see along the way so it would be a shame to not spend three to four days on it. Obligatory stops on this route include the stunning cliffs of the Twelve Apostles, London Bridge and the impressive lighthouses as Split Point. Not everything in life are cliffs or lighthouses, the "Great Ocean Road" also has stops with great Rests Maits path or charming towns like Port Fairy.
