Four places to visit around Sydney

Let me take you to Sydney this time, one of my favourite cities in the world.

Sydney is an incredible city with world famous landmarks, friendly residents and a temperate climate. Whether you visit the must-see sights such as the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, laze on the beaches of Bondi, Bronte and Coogee or dine out in the historic Rocks district, the city offers a fantastic city break. Sydney is also within easy reach of some remarkable outdoor attractions which I enjoyed a lot when I was there.

Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park
Whether you prefer to explore the dense forest, the winding creeks or the hidden coves, you will be captivated by the stunning Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. Combining natural beauty with Aboriginal heritage, the park attracts millions of hikers, swimmers, boaters and day trippers throughout the year. The park is just a short hop outside the city and it’s accessible by public transport.

Blue Mountains
The UNESCO World Heritage site offers idyllic bushwalks, tranquil scenery and amazing viewpoints. The spectacular rock formation known as the Three Sisters is the area’s most famous landmark and millions of visitors flock to see it every year. According to Aboriginal legend, the stacked rock formations represent three sisters who were turned to stone. Take the trail that leads down to the valley floor via the steps, known as the “Giant Stairway”, to the base of Katoomba Falls, then head back up to the plateau on the scenic railway.

Snowy Mountains
The ‘Snowies’, as the range is known, is the highest mountain range in the country, with the highest peak being Mount Kosciuszko at 2,228m. The range experiences a large amount of snowfall every winter from June – August, but each season brings with it exciting experiences. With mountains, rivers, lakes and forests, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, whatever the weather. Try your hand at mountain biking, go on a horse ride, take a hike, go fishing, take a stroll in search of vibrant wildflowers or if it’s ski season try some of the winter sports on offer.

Hunter Valley
One of the oldest and most famous wine regions in Australia, the Hunter Valley is scattered with wineries where you can sample fine wines and taste some of the best food in the country. Most vineyards offer free tasting sessions and many offer guided tours. The best way to explore the region is on a guided wine tasting tour, where somebody else does the driving and you can focus on enjoying the tasting.

There are plenty of flights coming to Sydney. e.g. you can take an Emirates flight to this cosmopolitan destination.

  1. I loved Sydney! I wish I had done more research before my trip and would have seen a performance at the opera house. I hadn’t even realized there are several different venues within it. Or that they have an afternoon tea
