Good afternoon people,

Because of different reasons, I will spend the first week of May in Sydney, Australia. I am flying Aerolíneas Argentinas EZE-AKL-SYD on April 28th and I'm heading back home on May 7th.

I have heard many times Sydney is an amazing city, but I don't really know what I should check out and what I should avoid while visiting. Besides, I was thinking about going to Canberra for a day trip, just to see Australia's capital city, which they say is pretty nice.

So, I would be really grateful if any A.netter could provide me with any information regarding Sydney, Canberra and Australia, and what to see over there.

Thanks in advance.  Smile

You could do the usual things like go to Circular Quay and climb the Harbour Bridge. Go to the Blue Mountains for a day, thats very fun. If you've got enough money you can go up Centre Point Tower(costs AUS$50 per adult) I've been up there once and it has an amazing view(you can probably spot landing planes if their using 16R.

If you're planning on visiting Canberra I suggest you spend more than 1 day there. In Canberra, theres lots of things to do. Visit old and new Parliament House, The National Art Gallery, Screen and Sound archives (they've got a very old Ned Kelly movie) and many more things.

Heres the government Sydney website

Heres the Canberra tourism website

Hope all this helps and have fun!

I suggest you take some train trips. Go to the Blue mountains. The beaches down south is nice, Bondi. You could also go to Cronalla.

I had a week in Sydney in March of last year and absolutely adored it.

This is what I did, take it for what it you will, I'm sure some natives can give you a better view:

Took a tour to the Hunter Valley vineyards
Rented a car and drove to the Blue Mountains
Watched a symphony at the Opera House
Walked around Bondi beach and had some fantastic Sydney rock oysters at a restaurant there called Icebergs.
Went shopping at some place near Kings Cross
Went to the Sydney zoo
Took a harbour cruise
Enjoyed a relaxing evening down by the harbour bridge (forgot what that area was called) with fantastic views and a Crown beer.

What an amazing country...and to think I only saw one city in it..

Hola Marcos,

As mentioned, from Bondi beach you can take a walk along a patch that connects with different beaches (i.e. Tamarama).

To have a great view of the harbour you can take a ferry from the Opera House to Manly (a different area with a beach) and back.

Watson's Bay. This is another area of Sydney, the place where the harbour connects with the ocean. Very nice views and parks, beaches and restaurants/terraces. You can reach it with a bus from the centre.

Newtown. Area off-downtown reachable by metro/trein. Many restaurants, shops, pubs.

Hope you enjoy your trip and also with Aerolineas.
