Look hard enough in Sydney Australia and you can still find evidence of Sydney’s original inhabitants, who predated European settlers by at least 50, 000 years. Traditional art can still be found on rock faces that have been left behind by local Aboriginal people, who hunted gathered and fished in the area’s well- wooded surroundings and sheltered harbor. Sydney is recognized as a top tourist destination and is ranked number five in the U. S News top 25 world’s best places to visit list and I would have to agree. It is a cool city with great vibes and surroundings. You can enjoy the sparkling harbor, outdoor lifestyle and great natural beauty.
Sydney is a cosmopolitan city surrounded by iconic beaches. Besides being Australia’s largest city, it is also the most visited. It is not the country’s capital, but most people think it is. The national capital city of Australia is Canberra, but most people [including myself] have never even heard of it. Sydney offers an incredible variety of attractions and sights to see. Some of the highlights to see include- Bondi beach, Palm beach, Manly beach, Sydney Harbor Bridge, Opera House, Tower Sky Walk, The Rocks and many more.
I had the time of my life in Sydney. I traveled down under with a close friend and a small group of recent high school graduates. It was a memorable experience that we still talk about today. I was fortunate to meet some great people who have a love for travel and we still keep in touch. I look forward to our Aussie reunion. My favorite activity was climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge. If you are scared of heights it is probably not the activity for you. You are very high up and attached only by a cable. You walk above cars driving on the bridge and many times feel like you will fall off, but the adrenaline rush is like no other and the views are spectacular. I look forward to a future trip to Sydney and I hope you get the opportunity to enjoy this fast paced city that knows how to celebrate, live it up and relax!
