Believe it or not, winter snow skiing opportunities are but a hop, skip and a jump from Sydney city. Just head to the Snowy Mountains, about a half day’s drive to the south, and find yourself gliding down the slopes in no time.

Beaches are a top attraction in Sydney. Locals know it, visitors know it, and many of the most well-known beaches can see dozens of thousands of people in a single day. If that sounds crowded, then you might be a person on the lookout for those hidden and secret beaches instead.

A 90 minute train ride separates visitors from Sydney city and the beautiful Blue Mountains. It’s just an hour and a half to fresh, clean air, speckled with breezes of eucalyptus, and plenty of panoramic views. The Blue Mountains makes the perfect destination for relaxing, shopping, eating or even adventuring for a day or long weekend.

Flea markets are typically known as markets held in the outdoors and that usually involve the resell of old goods, secondhand items and antiques. In Sydney, there might not be many of these traditionally known flea markets, but you can be sure that markets in general are never hard to find. Best of all, they make for a fun and perfect way to spend a day on the weekend, with friends and with the incorporation of a nice market snack or lunch in the middle.

To get a better grasp on the layout of the expansive Sydney city and its over 600 suburbs, a trip up to some of its heights would be in order. As a person who took this approach on her first visit to Sydney, I can attest that not only does this help you to gain a perspective on where suburbs and landmarks lie (much better than looking at a map from street level), but it also provides spectacular, sometimes 360 degree, views of this beautiful harbor city.
