If you’re planning a road-trip in Australia, don’t hesitate to pencil in at least 24 hours in Sydney, Australia’s most famous metropolis. The city and surrounds has a myriad of activities, great nightlife and iconic beaches to explore. Here are 5 must-do activities for your Sydney adventure that will fit into even the most whirlwind of itineraries!
1. Take a tour of the Sydney Opera House
passage for travellers visiting Sydney. Most will just grab the iconic
photo from outside the building but a tour will allow you to go beyond
the famous facade and behind the scenes of the country’s most famous
man-made structure. Image via Wikimedia Commons.

4. Catch the ferry to Manly
ride from Sydney Harbour and offers beautiful views of the Opera House
and bridge as you pass by. This experience is a great way to capture the
perfect photo of the bridge and harbour. Spend the afternoon lost in
the boutique stores of Manly, take a dip at the beach and have a long
and leisurely lunch alfresco at one of the urban cafes.

Rocks”, the oldest area in Sydney and perhaps the most stylish. Spend a
few hours discovering the hidden gems of the area and drinking coffee
at the uber-cool cafes. The area is popular in the evening thanks to its
cutting-edge nightlife and restaurants serving a range of cuisines.
