They say, “The more the merrier.” It’s a shake of the head, an expression of pity for all those who enjoy spending some ‘solo’ time. Is there something wrong with enjoying your own company? To discover the answer, step outdoors and spend time with yourself. No doubt, you will enjoy every single minute of it. Let me share some interesting ways to spend some ‘solo’ time in Sydney.

Tour The Blue Mountains

For nature lovers who want to break free from the daily hustle and bustle of city life – this is the place to be. Enjoy the scenic cable car ride across the valley. Check out the Three Sisters rock formation, Meehni, Wimlah and Gunnedoo from Echo Point Lookout at Katoomba. Go on board the steepest passenger railway and descend into an ancient rainforest. This is a popular tourist destination, so there may be people around you; but the emotions that well up within you are yours and yours alone.

Check Out The lunch cruises on Sydney Harbour

How about having an exceptional lunch out aboard a cruise? Hop aboard a day cruise on Sydney Harbour for the ultimate wine, dine and view experience. It is sure to create positive vibes around you. Feast on lavish buffet lunch and drinks. No worry of overcrowding, enjoy your privacy with a reserved table. Take in the harbour attractions especially the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. They make the perfect backdrops for your insta-worthy selfies.

Stroll Through The Rocks Weekend Market

Picture this in your mind. As music plays in the background, you stroll the market with a smile, a refreshment in hand and buy what catches the eye – it surely makes the most beautiful solo experience. Enjoy this vintage ambience as the Rocks Weekend Market in Sydney excites you with its shops, galleries and various eating options. Everything is up for sale – like curated artisan ware, beauty products, homeware and other stuff from local business owners. Explore food stalls and relish delectable eats by the harbourside. Participate in the free workshops to make things more interesting and walk away with a day full of unique memories.

Visit Taronga Zoo

One of the best solo activities is to experience the wild. Get up close and personal with animals and birds at the Taronga Zoo. Hop on Taronga’s very own cable car known as Sky Safari to enter the zoo and you get a bird’s eye view of Sydney Harbour. What’s more? Walk through an African safari and check out the elephants. The zoo has a lot more to offer like the Australian exhibit that includes native wildlife. The sea life exhibit features seals and sea turtles. Experience fun animal encounters, keeper for a day programs at Taronga. You can even stay overnight or hire a bike, electric cart or a pedal boat to explore the zoo for a real safari adventure.

Visit the Australian Museum

The oldest museum in the nation where you can experience science, culture and nature is right at the heart of Sydney. The Australian Museum offers you immersive exhibitions and interactive experiences. Be a part of workshops like Sketch the Collection that helps you discover the art of scientific illustration, interesting exhibitions like Erth’s Shark Dive (an event for children but also for the young at heart), tours like Warnara tours that give you an in-depth understanding of aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural objects from the Museum collections.

Spending some ‘solo’ time is actually a way of self-discovery. Go ahead and enjoy yourself, by yourself. There is so much to see and do out there mates! If you have liked my blog please do feel free to comment below…
