Acting like a tourist and visiting the most popular destinations is a great way to see exactly what the area has to offer. Attracting over 8 million people per year, the Sydney Opera House is just one of the main destinations housed in this great city.
Only have a few days to enjoy the sights and sounds of Sydney? If so, then you need to tick all the major tourist attractions off before you go!
Being in such a central city location, the Macleay Hotel is a great resting place to see the sights. Here's your ultimate tourist bucket list for your trip to Sydney!
Sydney Opera House
What better place to start than with one of the city's most iconic landmarks; Sydney Opera House. Soaring an impressive 67 metres above sea level, your Sydney photo album wouldn't be complete without a few shots of this impressive structure. Explore the exterior and for more insight into the building, book a guided tour and discover just what goes on behind the scenes.
What trip to Sydney would be complete without a visit to one of Australia's most famous beaches? Bondi Beach takes around 40 minutes to reach via public transport from the Macleay Hotel and is completely worth the short ride.
Easily recognisable from the television show Bondi Rescue, find the lifeguard tower, vast stretch of white sand and surrounding cafes and bars. Spend an afternoon strolling the suburb and snapping selfies with the off duty lifeguards!
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Although your central city hotel is already near to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, it doesn't mean that you can't get a closer look. And by closer look, we mean on top. That's right, for the full tourist experience of the city, why not book yourself a bridge climb of Sydney's Harbour Bridge? Towering 134 metres above the harbour, the climb allows for incredible 360 degree views of the entire city!
Queen Victoria Building
Just a 30 minute stroll through Sydney from the Macleay Hotel will bring you to the grand entrance of the Queen Victoria Building. Close to 120 years old and boasting some of the most incredible architecture in the city, it's a great photo album addition as well as a vast mall
Discover boutiques, coffee joints and endless shopping opportunities around every beautifully designed corner. The intricate decor, colourful stained glass windows and looming archways make this shopping experience that so much better.
With over 4,000 animals on site and home to some of Australia's furry icons such as koalas, red kangaroos and saltwater crocodiles, Taronga Zoo is a must visit for tourists of the city. Not only can you get up close to the country's critters, you can also enjoy breathtaking views of the harbour and bridge.
For the ultimate nature experience, take to the skies with the zoo's Wild Ropes bushland adventure. The high ropes course is a great and unforgettable way to see kangaroos, emus and koalas.
