Whether you’re visiting from overseas or you’re a local looking for some fun on the weekend, Sydney is a great city to get out and explore. With great nightlife, world-famous cultural sights and a plethora of jaw-dropping beaches to enjoy, there’s a reason that visitors have been flocking to Sydney for decades, and continue to visit this amazing location. Regardless of what your interest is or how you like to enjoy yourself, you can be sure that Sydney will have plenty to offer.
For many people, the biggest problem can be choosing where to begin. The city can often be overwhelming for visitors as there is simply so much to see, do, taste and experience both in Sydney itself and in the surrounding areas. To ensure you get the most out of your next weekend break in this iconic city, it’s crucial that you put a plan in place from the outset. Base yourself at a central location such as the Shangri La Sydney so that you can get around with ease and maximise what you can do with your time. Sit down and speak to your fellow travel party before you depart to discuss what you all want to do, just so you can make sure that your weekend in the city is truly memorable for all involved.
Let’s take a look at just five fun things you should consider adding to your itinerary for your next weekend visit to Sydney.
Check Out Bondi Beach
Bondi Beach is not just one of the most visited beaches in Australia. It’s also one of the most famous stretches of sand in the entire world. That’s why including a trip to this spectacular beach is an absolute must for anyone coming to Sydney for the weekend. As the beach is always busy, there is a great energy about the place regardless of whether you swim, surf, or sunbathe. If the beach is a bit too crowded for your liking on your weekend away, then there are still some fantastic shopping, eating and drinking options in the area for you to enjoy. Be sure to bring an extra suitcase if you’re hoping to make the most of all that Bondi has to offer and take some goodies back home to your family and other loved ones.
Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge
If you really want to have some fun in Sydney and do something a little different, climbing the world-famous Harbour Bridge is a brilliant activity to help enhance your weekend getaway experience. For many people, this is a once in a lifetime experience, as there are only a handful of climbable bridges in the world. As the Harbour Bridge itself has been a climbable bridge for many years now, it is a safe and secure experience all the same, so you don’t need to be a thrillseeker to find this enriching.
The operator and the organisation managing the climb will also give you everything you need to stay safe, including the appropriate climbing clothing, harnessing and other equipment required to keep you safe. While this might be a hair-raising experience on the face of it, the views of the city are truly worth every bit of effort.
Go To Luna Park
Anyone who enjoys amusement parks will absolutely love Luna Park. The Wild Mouse roller coaster is one of the most terrifying yet also one of the most fun rides in the park. Even the park’s entrance features a giant head positioned between two towers that allow guests access to the park through its toothy grin. There is also a retro funhouse area that features old-school attractions such as a mirror maze and slideshow games just like Coney Island in the United States. Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple, with your family or friends, you can be sure of a fun-filled day when you visit the awesome and awe-inspiring Luna Park.
Enjoy The Nightlife
Whether you want to dance the night away, eat at fancy restaurants or hang out in trendy pubs, Sydney nightlife has it all. The city is widely regarded as one of the best destinations in the entire southern hemisphere for venturing out at night time and once you experience Sydney’s bar and club scene, you will truly understand why. As there are so many options, it’s wise to consider how you want to spend the evening, rather than just wandering around and hoping for the best. From live music to themed pubs to karaoke and hipster hangouts, you will find it all in this amazing city.
See A Show At The Sydney Opera House
When most people think of Sydney, one of the first things that spring to mind is the iconic Sydney Opera House. While seeing this iconic structure from the outside is one thing, you absolutely need to catch a show at the House itself in order to truly appreciate it in all its majesty. Be sure to check out what shows are on when you’re in town. There are regular performances and shows that you can buy tickets for online and in advance of your trip to ensure you avoid disappointment when you arrive.
Have A Memorable, Enjoyable And Fun-Filled Weekend In Sydney
With so much to see and do in Sydney, it’s important that you finetune your trip itinerary before you arrive to ensure you get the very most from your limited time in this bustling city. Following the suggestions above, you can be sure that you will have a fun-filled weekend in Sydney that you will remember for many years to come.
