How to Spend One Day in Sydney

Posted by .


Kiri spills the beans on spending a day in Sydney...

Of course you’d be stark raving mad to only want to spend one day in Sydney but believe me, I know travellers that spent far too long in their campervan down the East Coast that Sydney became a whistle-stop tour.

I was a little luckier and had longer in Australia’s famous city and I was stoked (get me with Aussie lingo) at how much I could fit into one day.
Here’s a little photo tour of a day down under:

Sydney's Central Business District


Sydney is blessed with rather lovely weather so walking around the CBD (Central Business District) is jam packed with things to do. Awesome shops, galleries, museums, you name it…

Heading towards the iconic Sydney Harbour, pretty much goes without saying doesn’t it?

The Opera House is one of those buildings you just have to tick off your must see list and I wasn’t disappointed. There is truly no other building like it and its oddity is what makes it so charming.

After a morning taking in this icon of architecture we jumped on the train to the just as iconic Bondi Beach.  An afternoon spent surfing, sunbathing and eating fish and chips is an afternoon well spent.

We jumped back on the train, to the hostel and straight out for a night on the town at Sydney’s infamous Kings Cross. You can end your one day in Sydney nicely here with more bars and pubs than you can shake a wallaby at.
