Visiting Sydney is a must on every traveller’s itinerary, so let us help you along with a journey through The Harbour City’s once-in-a-lifetime experiences you just have to tick off at least once.
1. Climb The Harbour Bridge
Let’s start with an iconic experience that’s on every adventure seeking Sydney traveller’s bucket-list: The Harbour Bridge Climb. Promising ‘360 degrees of unforgettable’, the climb delivers just that with sweeping views over Sydney’s Harbour atop one of the world’s most legendary bridges. While the walk is offered at dawn, daytime, twilight and nightfall; we recommend rising with the sun and starting your day in Sydney with a dawn bridge climb.
2. Dine beneath the white sails of Sydney Opera House in Bennelong
Executive Chef, Peter Gilmore’s Bennelong menu should be on every culinary connoisseur’s dining itinerary when in Sydney. Located within Sydney Opera House, the food philosophy centres around the finest Australian food and wine with a celebration of the countries culture, heritage and modern tastes. Perfect for pre-theatre or post-Opera House tour, we recommend you experience a taste of Australia within the darling of Sydney’s Harbour.
3. A Helicopter Flight Over Sydney’s Harbour
Take Sydney by Seaplane, soaring above the Harbour City’s most iconic landmarks while taking luxe travel to new heights. Departing from Rose Bay, embark on a 15-minute sky-high adventure with birds-eye panoramas across Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Bondi and beyond. Spectacular in every sense of the word – this sky-high tour of the coastline is an unforgettable way to explore Sydney.
4. Skydive over the beach in Wollongong
Dubbed the rush of a lifetime, this skydiving experience offers you the chance to jump from Australia's highest altitude of up to 15'000 feet, directly over North Wollongong beach. Freefall at over 200km per hour down towards Southern Sydney's coastline, soaking in spectacular seascapes as you experience the ultimate thrill.
5. Ghost Tour in The Rocks
Discover the rich history of The Rocks by taking on the award-winning Ghost Tour through the lantern-lit cobblestone lanes of Australia’s original birthplace. Journey to ‘the other side’ discovering a haunted trail of opium dens, public executions, lingering spirits and mass burial pits only accessible while on the tour. This is your chance to see Sydney’s dark side and learn of its vast heritage at the same time.
6. Swim with Grey Nurse Sharks
Dive into a once-in-a-lifetime experience with Shark Dive Xtreme at Manly Sea-Life Sanctuary. Enter shark domain, swimming alongside the highly-endangered Grey Nurse Sharks, sea-turtles, enormous sting-rays, Port Jackson Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks and a breathtaking array of Sydney’s native marine life. If you are feeling daring, you can stick around to watch the feeding frenzy as the staff hand-feed the sea life and the Grey Nurse Sharks eye of their prey. Note: Don’t fear, they’re vegetarian.
