Vivid Sydney

Vivid Sydney

Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains are located 2 hours west of Sydney but the stunning scenery on the way will make the journey a pleasant and incredible experience. The UNESCO World Heritage site is popular amongst hikers and with over 140 km of walking tracks available, you can take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city and admire the beautiful wildlife and scenery. If that wasn’t enough, visit the nearby Jenolan Caves – the world’s oldest underground cave systems that still to this day are being explored due to the sheer size of the caves!

Vivid Sydney

Widely considered as one of the most spectacular light festivals in the world, a trip to the city during Vivid Sydney will not leave you feeling disappointed. Spanning 23 days, the event is held every year in Winter and the highlight of the celebration is the nightly light installations that the public has come to expect. Each evening, some of the city’s most iconic sights and landmarks transform into a canvas for light projections and the amazing colours and designs can be seen across the entire city 

Bondi Beach

A favourite amongst locals and tourists, Bondi Beach is one of the most well-known beaches in Australia. Trendy cafes and bars line the streets surrounding the beach and surfers looking to catch some waves can head to the beach and experience some of the best in the region. If it’s pools rather than oceans that you prefer, then why not head to the historic Bondi Baths next to popular Bondis Iceberg Club. Take a refreshing swim in the water or enjoy lunch at one of the best dining views in the city.

The Rocks

Situated between the popular Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, The Rocks is a bustling neighbourhood district right in the heart of city. In recent time, the Rocks have become famous for its markets and trendy restaurants, café and cruise terminal but before Sydney become what it was today, the area was the first place that the Europeans moved to in Australia. The cobblestone laneways and old warehouses that still stand give the city atmosphere and glimpse into the past. The Rocks Markets are held every weekend where you can grab anything from clothing to cosmetics

Sydney Harbour Bridge

No trip to Sydney would be complete without a trip to the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Also known by Aussie’s as the ‘coat hanger’ because of its design and stands talls over the harbour, the bridge is the one of the popular sight in the city with millions from around the world flocking to the area to take a photo or selfie with them next to arguably Australia’s most popular landmark. Talk a walk along the charming bridge or for a closer look, climb the arches of the bridge-  one of only five bridges in the world that you can climb on
