Day 1:

Sydney is all about two things: beaches and water so you have to see plenty of both while you are there!

Make like a local and go for brunch at the MCA which offers fantastic views over the harbour.

Catch the ferry from Circular Quay over to Manly and have a wander down The Corso to the beach. Why not grab some fish and chips and eat them wandering along the beach? We’d recommend taking a surf lesson from the well-known Manly Surf School while you’re in Manly and why not then (afterwards) treat yourself to a Frose at Wharf Bar

Next stop – catch the ferry from Manly Wharf to Watsons Bay and enjoy a drink at Watsons Bay Hotel.

Catch the ferry from Watsons Bay to Circular Quay and take a wander through the Botanical Gardens before having a drink and bite to eat at Opera Bar and taking in a show at the Opera House.

Day 2:

Take the bus from Circular Quay to Bondi Beach – no visit to Sydney would be complete without a trip to the world famous beach! Hang out with the locals, watch the surfers in action and check out the lifeguards!

Have a wander along part of the Bondi to Coogee walk route before heading to Icebergs for a spot of lunch.

In the afternoon, head back to Circular Quay on the bus, grab an ice cream and then head on the ferry to Taronga Zoo to check out the koalas and kangaroos as well as one of the best views of the harbour you will get in Sydney!

Head back on the ferry to Circular Quay and walk the short distance down to Sky Tower for epic views over Sydney and then finish the day off in style with a cocktail at Blu Bar!
