Sydney Opera House

3. The Art Gallery of NSW

The Art Gallery of NSW is a beautiful, rare treat to visit; it has been open since 1871 situated in The Domain. You can view scores of international art, local Australian art, and pieces from European colonists dating back to the 19th Century.

Depending on when you'll be visiting, there are often contemporary art shows you need a ticket to attend. Still, you can view their permanent collection any time and be enthralled.

Coastal walks sydney

4. A Seaside Walk To Remember

Sydney is known for its warm, picturesque sandy beaches, and who doesn't love a good tan? However, if you only have a few hours or a single day to spare and want to see as much of the seaside delights in the city as you can, make an effort to take on the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk, which is about 6 km. The trail is easygoing, so even if you are not a hiking enthusiast, you will be dazzled by the spectacular ocean views you will witness. You can also do a partial coastal walk by walking from Bondi to Bronte instead of Coogee; even a few minutes on this walk beats sitting at home watching TV. Not to mention you can go for a swim if you pack a bathing suit in your backpack, and there are plenty of culinary delights to sample along the way too.

The Rocks Sydney

5. The Rocks Neighbourhood

The Rocks neighbourhood is a great one to visit if you are interested in historical architecture and the colonialist history of the region from when the first settlers made their houses in this area in 1788. This olden, colonial, almost Victorian-style neighbourhood has the impressive Sydney Harbour Bridge that joins North Sydney to the city near the Sydney Opera House. One of the oldest buildings in the city is Cadmans Cottage circa 1816. There's plenty of 19th Century architecture to peruse and lots of cafes and art galleries to explore. It's genuinely a cultured person's paradise!

What to Wear

Sydney can be laidback, so shorts and t-shirts are perfect in summer for walking around tourist destinations. In saying that, Sydney is a stylish city, and you will see many women dressed to impress. If you don't want to pack a dress when you visit and need to attend one of the stylish clubs or restaurants, you can always hire a dress in Sydney easily.
