There is no dearth of sights to see, visit and enjoy so much that you will be spoilt for choice.
Head to the beach
As Sydney is well-known for its beaches, this falls on top of the list. Bondi, Manly, Coogee, Balmoral etc. Out of the many, Bondi Beach is the city’s favourite. Find beachwear stores, cafes serving a raw vegan menu, surfing schools, homes of the famous, all in this surfer’s paradise. There is also the famous Bondi to Coogee coastal walk. Indulge in the beautiful coastline vistas, cafe strips and cosy beaches on this six-kilometre long walk which takes about two hours to complete. Take refreshing breaks and chill it out with a swim at Coogee beach in the end.
Also try the Seal Rocks. People get drawn to the fabulous beaches here. Not only that, it is serene and has a tranquil vibe to it.

Also, look out for whales (depending on the season) and dolphins (year-round).
