Our tips for Sydney

  • BYO, always. Bringing your own beverages is a celebrated and much-loved custom available in most Sydney restaurants where even licensed venues won’t bat an eyelid! Save yourself some considerable dough by bringing your own alcohol to lunch and dinners.
  • Go north. Bondi beach may be one of the must-do tours in Sydney, but for a truly amazing coastal experience, head to the Northern beaches. Ferries are cheap and run often between Circular Quay and Manly beach, the best spot for busy day trippers.
  • Spot a kangaroo. Sydney’s vast nature reserves are one of its greatest selling points, with untamed wildlife and native scenery just a stone’s throw from the city centre. Sydney day trips to the Royal National Park are always idyllic, and we are almost certain that you’ll come across a kangaroo or two.
  • Stay safe. Keep your valuables close and only carry small changes on your Sydney day tours. Crowded areas are where pickpockets operate. Dial 000 for assistance in emergencies.
  • Beach, please. From Bondi to Manly, Coogee, and Cronulla, you can have endless fun on the beaches of Sydney. However, beware of the ocean’s powerful rips and undercurrents and swim at patrolled beaches, between the lifeguards’ flags.

Good to know

Located on the east coast of Australia, the coastal metropolis is the capital city of New South Wales. Sydney is a city where lifestyle rules, it’s no surprise that sun-kissed Sydney locals know how to have a good time.
