Many people make a beeline for the harbour city of Sydney while in Australia, and the best hotels in Sydney are certainly very welcoming to tourists. However, do you know which attractions and sights you’d be ready to see when you arrive?
We’ve got some suggestions you may want to discover more about – all within easy access of the best hotels in Sydney. Make sure you add these to your itinerary, whatever else you may have included – you’ll be glad you did.
It certainly sounds very welcoming, and in truth Darling Harbour has plenty to offer if you are keen to find somewhere picturesque to walk round and explore. While some of the best hotels in Sydney can be found here, there is a popular cafe complex here that provides a nice place to kick back and relax – and there is plenty more to do too. For example, the Chinese Garden of Friendship is a main attraction, offering plenty of greenery and places to sit and watch the world go by.
This is a very popular zoo both with tourists and locals and there is plenty to do here to fill an entire day. There are a number of tours you can take part in if you wish as well as plenty of other activities on a daily basis. For example, you can listen to some of the interesting daily talks with keepers to find out more about the activities on offer and how the animals are looked after. Check out the interactive online and plan a route through the zoo to suit the length of time you’ll be there.
You really can’t miss the entrance to Luna Park, as it is marked by two towers joined together by a massive laughing clown face. Located at spectacular Milsons Point on the harbour, it is relatively close by to some of the best hotels in Sydney. The park originally opened in 1935, and while it has closed for several periods since then (for different reasons) it is now open to the public again and has been completely overhauled to ensure it offers an unsurpassed experience. There are plenty of fun rides in the park, including Tumblebug, Wild Mouse (a rollercoaster), Dodgem City and the child friendly Magic Castle. There are many other attractions in Luna Park too, making it a popular destination for those on holiday as well as Sydneyites.
These three attractions merely scratch the surface of the attractions this stunning Australian city boasts, and, of course, you can add in the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House as well.
