There are so many beautiful things to see and do in Sydney and did you know a lot of them are free!
Start your tour of Sydney with a walk over the Harbour via the Bridge. From Milson’s point you can walk the full length of the bridge arriving in the Rocks. Be sure to look up and see all the people walking over the top of the bridge (Sydney Bridge climb) but look straight out and you can see right across the harbour, past Fort Denison, Goat Island out to the heads.
From the Harbour Bridge you will find the old stairs leading to the historic Rocks – the earliest dwellings in Sydney. The historic feel and styled buildings host some of the most delicious meals, brewery’s and retail shopping. Every Saturday and Sunday wander around the markets and on Friday’s the foodie markets are full of delicious meals and produce to purchase. There
are self guided tours or paid tours, make sure you visit the Visitor Information Centre to maximise your time around the harbour. www.therocks.com/markets/
Sydney Harbour really is amazing for boasting some great picnic spots! The Royal Botanical Gardens is a must-see in Sydney. Find a shady spot and sit back and watch near Mrs Macquaries Chair – the harbour is always buzzing and when you have had enough of lazing around take a walk through the gardens. Some of the most s tunning Australian natives and globally introduced plants will delight you. Other amazing picnic spots for best harbour viewing are North Head – great walks, picnic spots and bird life, Wendy’s Secret Garden in Lavender Bay, a beautiful retreat hidden away but definitely a lovely secluded place for a quite sandwich and harbour viewing and Chowder Bay in Middle Head offers beautiful views, swimming, beach and historic heritage – another place for a great day out. Check out the national parks for more information.
The new addition to Sydney Harbour is Barangaroo Reserve, this space provides grassed areas, walking and cycle paths and recreational areas – it is now open to the public and definitely worth a visit.
What ever you choose to do this Spring, Sydney Harbour will provide you with some of the best viewing – city and water!
