It is a place where you can climb to the top of one of the world’s most majestic bridges in the day and see the opera at night, where you can laze around on a sublime beach before dining on sumptuous seafood at a world class restaurant!

The only problem with asking the question “how can I spend three days in Sydney?” is that three days in Sydney simply doesn’t cut it to explore its wide-reaching attractions, but we’ll give it a try anyway.

Here are some of the most exciting activities you can undertake in the marvelous Emerald City…

A Harbour Bridge climb

This isn’t just an experience for thrillseekers (although you might want to be one to drag yourself up there!). The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the world’s most spectacular, traversing the city’s gorgeous harbour and providing outrageous views of all its elegant inlets and glistening waters.

So, when we say a Harbour Bridge climb isn’t just for thrillseekers, we mean it’s also for someone who can appreciate a nice view. Climbing to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the most rewarding things you can do in this old town, as it provides you with panoramic views of the city skyline, the magnificent Opera House, the darling harbour and out to the Pacific Ocean!

Touring the incredible Opera House

The Opera House isn’t just a place where you check it out, maybe wander around its perimeter, take a Gram-worthy snap and have a drink by the harbour – it’s also a place of unparalleled cultural achievement!

Come on, the place hosts hundreds of amazing artistic events each year, so you know that it’s a place that has a few stories to tell, and told they are with a backstage Opera House tour.

These unforgettable tours take you backstage at this mesmerising building, with a knowledgeable guide talking you through all the gossip, glitz and glory that transpires on-stage and behind the curtains.

Chill out at Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach is world famous for being an absolutely awesome place to spend an afternoon in sunny Sydney, attracting a vibrant crowd that whiles away the hours on the shores of this most pristine stretch of shoreline. It’s the perfect way to relax in the bustling, wondrous city of Sydney…
