Travel to Sydney, Australia – Episode 281

categories: australia travel


The Amateur Traveler talks to Alix (of Alix and Jace’s Amazing Adventure) about her hometown of Sydney Australia.

Alix has many ideas about fun things to do in Sydney so you don’t just end up with the rest of the tourists on Darling Harbor. After you have climbed the Harbor Bridge and visited the Sydney Opera House she recommends a beach walk by world-famous Bondi Beach, a chance to sleep with the animals of the Taronga Zoo and the out of the way Manly Beach. She tells us what’s the best day of the year to see Sydney (although also the most expensive).

Alix also gives us a dizzying list of Sydney restaurants to try.

I am living in Melbourne, but am a great fan of Sydney. Particularly the Opera House because of the theater culture it has brought about in the country. I am also largely into beaches. Bondi is one of the best because it is so lively.
Thought you might find it interesting to look at this article on the best Sydney beaches. Do you agree with the choice ?



If the long flt was shorter I”all go.
