You cannot visit Australia without going to Sydney. Whether you are in Sydney for a few days or much longer, this is a city that offers a plethora of interesting activities and sites for young people. Here are some the best places or activities for young travelers.
Learn how to Surf at Bondi
This is a tourist hotspot. You can hardly find any Australian learning how to surf at Bondi. It is an iconic beach in Sydney, perfect for every surfing beginner for several reasons. The beach faces south, thereby offering protection, and the waves are not that wild. Moreover, the scenery while bobbing about in the ocean as you wait for the next wave is something you will always remember.
Climb the amazing Harbour Bridge
Climbing the Harbour Bridge, which features among the world’s most famous bridges, is a thrilling once in a lifetime experience. Take a night, twilight, dawn or day climbs and then sample different breathtaking views.
Walk through the Harbour Bridge
A more pocket-friendly option compared to Bridge Climb is a free walk across the bridge and then taking similar panoramic views but at a lower level. Alternatively, you can visit Python Lookout at about $11 for some fantastic views.
Coastal Walk from Bondi to Coogee
The Coastal Walk from Bondi to Coogee is another Sydney’s best discovery for young travelers. This walk is stunning and offers a perfect way of spending your day. There are many coves and beaches that you can stop and swim in, if you get overheated.
Walk across Hyde Park
Hyde Park is the oldest park in Australia and has an open green space. It is popular among office workers that may be in need of fresh air, quick siesta or just some moment outside the concrete jungle. The park has many statues and jungles and the pathway is a fig lined road that is quite impressive. The park witnesses many activities during summer months.
Vivid Sydney is an annual event showcasing unique music, ideas or lighting fixtures, which liven up the city throughout the night. In May, the popular Vivid lights are switched on in a free lighting display next to Circular Quay and the Rocks District. The festival has impressive and interactive 50 light art sculptures.
Explore the amazing Rocks District
The Rocks is also an historic site located within the City Centre and can possibly be a favorite spot for younger travelers. You will definitely learn so many stories once you explore the Rocks. Learn something concerning the history of the place at Rocks Discovery Museum. Walk along the cobblestoned streets, browse the market stalls during weekends or go for some pub crawl to dance the night away to a live reverberating music. Some of the favorite pubs frequented by most travelers in Australia include the Heritage Hotel, Harts Pub and the Observer among others.
