Sydney Itinerary: 3 Days Travel to Sydney

Sydney Itinerary: 3 Days Travel to Sydney

Sydney Opera House

Sydney’s most iconic landmark. The opera house is a majestic building that really dominates the harbor. After an hour guided tour, we left with a much deeper appreciation and understanding of this iconic structure.

We went on the guided tour. You get to see a number of different performance theaters, rehearsal spaces and backstage areas. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained to us all aspects of the building and the architect Jørn Utzon. It was surprised to learn that the architect had never returned to Sydney to see his masterpiece completed.


We had a great lunch at Bennelong. This was the perfect location before the Opera House tour. The food was delicious!

Sydney Harbour Bridge

This bridge connects the Sydney business district and the Northshore. It was always spectacular and amazing to see it on TV especially during the New Year’s Eve with the fireworks display.

Sydney BridgeClimb

This was an amazing one-of-a kind experience. The safety issues were well explained and carried out. Even though I am scared of heights, at no time did I feel unable to continue. It was a great way to see Sydney and the Harbor.

Celebrity Spotting

The Rocks

Located next to Circular Quay. Lively trendy area for street market during the weekend. Great cafe culture during the day and good bar scene at night.

Queen Victoria Building

Great place to stroll through. Plenty of top end shops and cafes. It is worth a walk through to see the beautiful tile work, paintings and hanging clock.

Darling Harbour

Darling harbour is especially fun in the evening. We went to Darling Harbour to see the fireworks on Saturday night at 9pm and were pleasantly surprised by all the restaurants and cafes that were there. It’s a great spot to hang out, get an ice cream, and walk around. Very family friendly!

Just loved to sit and watch the world go by, and the night lights were also amazing!

Darling Harbour Ferries

Best way to see Sydney at night. Get an Opal card from the machine and tap away.

Diner en Blanc 11/28/2015

I heard that this worldwide dining event is not released until the day of the event. We saw hundreds of guests came dressed in white. Looked like this year it will be held in the Sydney Opera House. Fun!
