Sydney, like most other major metropolitan areas across the world has its share of museums and points of interest, but given that its history is relatively recent, there’s plenty to do besides snapping photos of you and your friends or family in front of famous bridges.
Sydney Tower is a good place to stop in as it gives you a view of this marvelous city from 88 stories up. The 360 Bar is an upscale restaurant, and you can find a dinner package that includes several courses for a reasonable price. It’s a good way to begin or end your Sydney stay.
Of course, the most famous landmark in Sydney is the Opera House, a must-see for first time visitors. Sydney tour packages range from guided backstage tours to High Teas prepared by famous Australian chef Guillaume Brahmi.
If tea and an opera is a little tame for you, take a tour of Kings Cross, Australia’s red light capital. In particular, the Sydney Crimes and Passions Tour is pretty awesome if you’re interested in the murders, bawdy romances and other salacious details of Sydney’s past. Nowadays, it’s a vibrant, controversial melting pot of bohemian ideals and freewheeling lifestyles. It might not be for the faint of heart (or your kids), but if you’re game for the unpredictable (or looking for a party), head to Kings Cross.
