10 Unworldly Experiences in Sydney…and How to Top Them!

by Sasha Selkirk

They say once you catch the travel bug you just can’t shake it and I’m convicting evidence of that. In the last two years my terminally itchy feet have seen me border hopping into over 20 different countries, and yet somehow, Sydney arrested me for over eight of those months.

In short, Sydney is one seriously special city! Full of joy and wonder, and so much to discover! I want to share the joy of this city with you. Experiences in Sydney that will live long in the memory. This blog is just a snapshot of what the city has to offer, and when to see the showstoppers in their element. Get planning!
