5 Unconventional Reasons Why You Need to Visit Sydney

Sydney is one of the most incredible cities in the world and its landmarks are known across the globe. However, there is much more to visiting Sydney than simply taking a picture at the Sydney Opera House or climbing at the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This city, like many others, has its own hidden gems that make the visit worth your while. So, without further ado, here are few unconventional reasons why you need to visit Sydney as soon as possible.

1.      Visiting Kangaroo Island

If there is one thing that everyone knows about Australia is that it has the most indigenous wildlife than any place on earth. In order to see the most of it, you need to visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park. Here, you have kangaroos and koalas in the unprecedented numbers since the park itself has no natural predators which would diminish their numbers. Seeing how this is also a popular spot for birthday parties you also may want to include it in a family trip.

2.      Dinner at the Sydney Tower

Another hidden jewel of a Sydney tourism is the idea of having a dinner at the Sydney Tower. The building itself is 88 stories high and provides a beautiful view of the metropolitan area. Technically, you could also go here for a breakfast or lunch, but watching the night-lights of Sydney from high above is something you should definitely not miss out on.

3.      Going to a Coffee Shop

Now, coffee is something people most commonly associate with countries like Brazil, Vietnam or Turkey, but little do they know that Australia is also one of the giants in the coffee industry. This is why, anyone who considers themselves to be a coffee person needs to visit Sydney at least once in a while.  On top of it all, Sydney is also a home of Single O, one of the most renowned Australian chain of coffee shops and breweries.

4.      Great Cycling Routes

There are those who see cycling as nothing more than means of commute, but then again, some people see their bike as a best friend or a family member. For them, available cycling routes are one of the main determiners when picking a location for the next holiday. Luckily, Sydney has a lot to offer when it comes to this. The diversity of the routes is great as well since you can both cycle through the metropolitan area or alongside Sydney beaches.

5.      Wine Tasting

Coffee is far from the only thing you can enjoy while in Sydney. Just outside of the city lies the mesmerizing Hunter Valley, one of the most renowned wine regions in whole of Australia. Now, you can either go there independently or embark on a wine and cheese tasting tour. Needless to say, this great place has to offer over 20 wine varieties, which is every sommelier’s dream. 


In order not to get misinterpreted there is nothing wrong with going on a standard Sydney tour and exploring the city by visiting the usual landmarks. However, this is not the best way to get to know the place, so perhaps you will approach your next tour more open mindedly and look for more uncommon and unique ways to have a good time in Sydney.
