Sydney

We spent four days here and packed a lot in but would advise longer if you can, there’s so much to do here its a great place.

On day 1 We had pre – booked a day trip to the blue mountains. Our tour was with ‘Loka’; we really liked this tour as it fitted a lot in and the driver gave a lot of extra info. There was quite a bit of hiking included so make sure you’re prepared for some exercise in the heat :). We sure stopped at a shop on the way but it was slightly expensive so bring your own snacks if you can. Bring water, there is a fountain on the way to fill up.  As well as as the beautiful blue mountains we stopped to see kangaroos,  have a swim in in a rock pool and saw the three sisters.

Day 2 As is was Sunday we took advantage (as well as the rest of Sydney) of the cheaper transport prices and took the ferry to Manly. This is a really cool place; nice beaches and walks. It’s also worth the trip over just for the ferry journey; stunning views of the Opera house,  harbour bridge and sydney coast line.

Day 3: Got the train and one bus to bondi beach (really simple journey*). After chilling out on the beach for a while we did the Bondi to Coodgee coastal walk. This took us about two-three hours which is more than it said but we were taking our time with lots of photo stops. The walk is a must! It’s so beautiful.  Loads of different beaches along the way. We got the bus back from Coodgee to Sydney(easy).

*Tip

The transport in Sydney is great, its all run off FREE ‘opal’ cards and it’s pretty inexpensive to top up.

Day 4 The hostel recommend a free walking tour which leaves from Circular Quay every day at 1400. We stayed with the tour for about 90 mins (it goes for 3 hours). The guy running it was really informative and gave a lot of info mainly about the history of Australia.
