Head to Australia’s oldest and largest city and dive into a rich ecosystem of world-class dining, ancient history, stunning harbours, picturesque beaches and thriving markets. There’s a reason Sydney sees hordes of tourists flocking to its streets each year and why many foreigners think it’s, in fact, the country’s capital. Experience the jewel of Australia’s eastern seaboard for yourself and set your own pace as you choose from the myriad sights and attractions on offer.
Ace is located just 1 KM from Sydney Airport domestic and 3 KM from international terminals.
Sydney Airport information
No trip to Sydney is complete without marvelling at two of the country’s arguably most iconic man-made landmarks – the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. These two impressive feats of engineering alone are responsible for drawing gawking tourists from all across the world.
Below are some other recommended attractions for your next trip to New South Wales’ capital city.
Climb The “Coathanger”
While you’ll undoubtedly be spending ample time around The Rocks and Circular Quay, snapping a barrage of quintessential shots of the bridge and opera house, you might enjoy seeking a slightly more unique vantage point.
Book yourself a BridgeClimb and brave the arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge as you scale the world’s largest steel arch bridge. Once you arrive at the peak, 134 metres above sea level, you’ll be rewarded with unmatched panoramic views of the city skyline and harbour.
Catch a ferry to Manly
Once you’ve had enough of walking amongst the birds, head back down to sea level and book a ferry ride to Manly. Located on Sydney’s north side, this area is famous for its scenic walks, surf breaks and laid-back charm.
Partake in a snorkelling tour to learn more about the 200-plus fish species that call the nearby waters home. Otherwise, you can rent a paddleboard and test your balance as you glide across the clear waters.
Surf at the famous Bondi Beach
A location doesn’t get a TV show made after it unless it’s a one-of-a-kind attraction. And Bondi Beach doesn’t disappoint. The most famous strip of sand in Australia is located a lazy 20-minute drive from the city centre and offers a multitude of shopping, dining and relaxation options.
Start with a paddle at the Bondi Icebergs open ocean pool before going for a walk along the six-kilometre cliff top trail. Otherwise, you can try your hand at surfing as the locals do and book some lessons to learn the ropes.
Take a trip to the Blue Mountains
The extraordinary Blue Mountains National Park can be reached by car in just under 2 hours from Sydney, but it’s well worth the excursion. The one million hectares of tall forests, waterfalls and sandstone cliffs are most recognised for the popular rock formation, the Three Sisters. Traverse challengingly steep stairs built into the wall of the formation itself and walk across the side of the iconic landmark for excellent views of the surrounding Blue Mountains and dense bushland.
With so much to see and do in Sydney, it’s well worth planning a longer stay to ensure you don’t miss out.
