So you’ve worked your butt off and saved up for a trip ‘down under’ to Australia and you find yourself with a day or two of free time on your hands. What do you do?
I’m an Aussie girl myself and I’ve grown up around Sydney for my whole life; it’s safe to say that it’s an amazing place. Surrounded by culture, beautiful weather and lovely people, Sydney is one of those places where you just want to go out and explore every inch of the city. So what do you do in iconic Sydney when you’re on a tight budget? Read on and I can reveal to you some of the best things to do for free in Sydney, Australia!
Sydney is home to some of the best Art Galleries and the best collections of art, where you can drench yourself in culture and take some time to really challenge your creative mind. Gain inspiration from the Museum of Contemporary Art while overlooking the Harbour, gaze at historical artworks at the Art Gallery of NSW and be delighted by the White Rabbit Gallery (and enjoy a few cheeky Dumplings after!).
Circular Quay is the place to be
Possibly the best place for all things tourist-y in Sydney; if you had only one day to spend in Sydney, Circular Quay is the best place to be. It has so many iconic tourist attractions to appreciate – the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, The Rocks and you can even take a ferry trip to another island.
Bondi Beach. Enough said.
Or just any beach in Australia, really. They’re all f***ing amazing.
Walk on the Harbour Bridge
No I’m not talking about the $200 Bridge Climb! I’m talking about the sidewalk that runs across the whole bridge and takes you to North Sydney that even people who have a fear of heights can do! You’ll come across breathtaking views of the Harbour, but just remember to take a bottle of water because it’s a long journey!
Browse the Markets
There are markets that run on Thursdays and Saturdays in lots of places around Sydney so you can’t miss them. Have a stroll around the Eveleigh markets or the markets at The Rocks and find something unique, original, creative and affordable.
My question for you guys: Where are you from and where do you want to travel to?
