Thousands of backpackers arrive in Sydney as it is a backpackers heaven - with sunny beaches, a great nightlife, and lots of adventures waiting to happen. So why don't you become a Sydney backpacker?
The list of things to do in Sydney is endless, but the following is a list of must see and dos!
Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge - one of Australias most famous landmarks. BRIDGECLIMB operates Climbs everyday at ten-minute intervals. The last DayClimb is dependent upon the time the sun sets, which varies throughout the year. NightClimbs operate from the time the sun sets, each night of the week. (visit http://www.bridgeclimb.com.au for more information and to book your climb online)
For something less strenuous, visit the Pylon Lookout up from the pedestrian walkway on the bridge. Inside the Lookout is a fascinating display on how the bridge was built.
Spend a day or two exploring the beautiful Sydney Harbour by ferry. Whilst you can get a cruise around the harbour, the cheapest way is to go via public ferry (visit http://www.sydneybuses.nsw.gov.au/sb.ferries.html for more information). For a more speedy trip around the harbour, try out the new OzJetboating Thrill ride. Departing from the Eastern Pontoon at Circular Quay, you'll see some of Sydney Harbour's most famous sites, including the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Be warned, it travels up to 80km an hour!
Enjoy lunch or an icy cold beer in the historical Rocks - a place of great historical significance which is also a great place to party on - particularly for a traditional Australian Sunday Session. (The Rocks Visitor Centre, at 80 George Street, publishes an excellent free booklet (in conjunction with the Sydney Cove Authority) called The Rocks Self-guided Tour.)
Check out the views from Sydneys tallest building, Centrepoint Tower (305 metres above street level), located at 100 Market Street.
