Traveling through Australia is no small feat, as the continent is a staggering 2.97 million miles! However, if you have a set itinerary, you can definitely see a nice amount of land with some great scenery. Of course, be sure to take your camera with you, so you can capture all of the amazing colors and settings that Australia has to offer.
This article will focus on Sydney, perhaps Australia’s most popular tourist city due to its picturesque beaches. If you’re traveling to Sydney from abroad, that means you most likely flu with Qantas airlines, Australia’s biggest national airline. (And don’t forget to sell your extra Qantas miles after your trip!). Upon arriving into Sydney you will immediately see some incredible coastal lines.
While walking around Sydney, make sure that you check out the incredible coast line, which you can walk along and stroll at a leisurely pace. And of course, there are plenty of things to check out along the way, including the famous SKYWALK at the Sydney Tower Eye, which also happens to be Sydney’s highest open-air attraction!
Once you finish the scenery, you probably want to check out the wildlife. The two best places to visit for this are probably the Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Aquarium, which are even more fun if you have kids or siblings to bring along.
Speaking of kids, you may want some educational aspects, which you can do with a museum tour. The most popular museums to check out are: the Australian Museum, the Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour, as well as the interactive Powerhouse Museum.
Assuming you are visiting Sydney during the warm weather months with your camera in tow, make sure to visit the following outdoors activity spots: Sydney BridgeClimb, Australian Wildlife 4WD Tour, and a truly spectacular Sydney Whale-Watching Cruise which the whole family is sure to enjoy. Just make sure you have your digital camera batteries fully charged!
