Sydney Tourism & Travel Area Guide

Sydney tourism is a fundamental part of the country’s economic activity with close to 4 million international visitors yearly and double the number of visitors from within the country. With scenic attractions that range from pristine beaches to gorgeous gardens and historic forts, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Start off by visiting Sydney’s most iconic attractions, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Opera House is, without a doubt, one of the most recognizable structures in Sydney. Known for its intricately designed shell roof, the Opera House is among the most popular destinations for both domestic and international visitors. The house also hosts hundreds of performances annually, so it is certainly worth visiting.

A trip to Sydney is incomplete without taking a glimpse of the majestic Harbour Bridge. The bridge, which connects the CBD to the Harbour, provides breathtaking views of the city’s skyline. Head out to the South-East pylon, a popular lookout point, or take the adventure a notch higher and sign up for the exhilarating climbs. Group climbs are also available for those interested.

Away from the dizzying heights at the bridge, visitors also have a chance to delve more into Sydney’s history and explore the historic forts that dot the harbour. Most of the forts were used in the interwar period, and these include these located between Bradleys Head and Middle Head.

Apart from the forts located at the Sydney Harbour, visitors also have the chance to explore the best of Sydney tourism at the Darling Harbour. From entertainment at the Sydney Entertainment Centre to unwinding at the beautiful Chinese gardens and movies on the big screen at IMAX theatre, Darling Harbour does not disappoint.

Some of Sydney’s most popular beaches include Bondi and Manly beaches. Bondi attracts many visitors all year round, but features many cafes, restaurants, and has stunning views which makes it a delightful destination. Manly Beach on the other hand is located at the end of the Northern beaches with easy access.

Other attractions that comprise Sydney tourism include wildlife at the famous Taronga Zoo and Sydney Wildlife World as well as whale watching at lookout points within Botany Bay.
