A masterpiece of 20th-century architecture, the Sydney Opera House in Circular Quay hosts more than 40 performances each week. Sign up for a two-hour backstage tour, which takes guests behind-the-scenes into the exclusive domain of performers, with a full cooked breakfast in the green room. Tours operate daily at 7 am.
Climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Nicknamed “The Coathanger” and dating back to 1932, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia’s grandest engineering feats. Visitors are free to walk or cycle across this vast structure, but book a BridgeClimb for the opportunity to scale to the summit and enjoy unbeatable panoramic views. Expeditions will take you high into its arches before reaching its peak, 134 metres (440 feet) above sea level. No special climbing skills are required, and there are various sessions throughout the day, including at twilight and dawn.
Dine at restaurants
Sydney has the most awarded and innovative restaurants. Don’t miss the opportunity to treat you. Dine at Quay to sample beautiful, natural produce such as wild blacklip abalone, Murry cod and chef Peter Gilmore’s celebrated dessert, the Snow Egg. Also in the city centre, Sepia‘s sophisticated five or nine-course tasting menu with matching wines has been applauded by the world’s best chefs and critics.
Take in a tour to the Blue Mountains
Famous for its rock formation known as the Three Sisters – along with quaint hotels and charming townships — the Blue Mountains National Park is just under a two-hour drive from Sydney. Here you can discover one million hectares (2.5 million acres) of tall forests, sandstone cliffs, waterfalls and bushland, either mountain biking, abseiling or on foot. For a unique perspective, head to Scenic World in Katoomba, home to a cableway, a walkway over the rainforest canopy and a glass bottom skyway.
Visit Wild Taronga Zoo
Australia has an amazing array of local wildlife, from the ubiquitous kangaroo to harder-to-see native animals such as the Tasmanian devil and hairy-nosed wombat. The best to place to see these is Zoo. Taronga Zoo Sydney is 15-minute drive north of the city centre in the suburb of Mosman – the views of Sydney Harbour are so beautiful you might have trouble keeping your eyes on the animals. The giraffes may just have the best view in Sydney, with a panoramic vista across to the city, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. If you want to join them for a night, try the Roar & Snore experience, in which you sleep in luxury safari tents in the zoo grounds.
