Travel Tips For Sydney Visitors – Things You Should Know The Day You LandPosted on Sep 30, 2019
Located in the east coast of Australia, Sydney is the capital of NSW and the most popular city in the nation. Famous as ‘harbour city’, it is a great destination for all those who look for a break by the sea during their Australian trip. Below you will find some great travel tips to Sydney – all the things that you should know the day you land there!
Where to stay
Probably the best place to stay in the heart of Sydney and only a stones-throw away from ICC Sydney & Entertainment Centre is Sydney Darling Harbour Waterfront. Offering spectacular views of the city skyline and Sydney Harbour, all rooms are spacious, air conditioned, modern & feature the latest technology to provide a comfortable accommodation in Sydney Harbour.
Sydney Darling Harbour Waterfront supplies Opal Cards
It is not the gemstone we are talking about. Opal card is the payment method of the public transport system. It can be used on trains, ferries, Light Rail and buses. Just tap on & off everywhere you go or else you would be charged a high amount for the trip you’ve made. Opal cards come with maximum daily as well as weekly charges & you may load them with funds at the convenience stores, train stations and also online (if you are registered).
Ferries are really a thing here
You can find a lot of people catching ferry across Sydney Harbour to carry out their day to day work. It is a legitimate form of transport and is the quickest way of getting from one part of the city to the other. However, it is even very much scenic and you can even take ferry trips if you want.
Have a lot of time in your hand to travel from point A to B
The trains are to run every fifteen minutes but they don’t in peak commuter times. Buses say that they arrive on a hourly basis or half-hourly but they are often late as well. Ferries are a great option & run on a tight schedule but are not frequent either. Sydney basically doesn’t have a reliable and fast transit system. It can take 30 minutes or even more to get from one point to the other in the city. Walking is thus the fastest and best way of reaching any place. In fact, much of CBD & the surrounding suburbs are explored easily by foot. You can also cross Sydney Harbour Bridge by your foot.
Visit the Opera House
Each and every night, the Opera House in Sydney is lighted with a projection known as Badu Gili. Sydney’s Opera House is a must visit. However, when you are there don’t just take a selfie in front of it. Go inside and see what’s in. It is the heart of classical music, theatre & great rock shows in Sydney. It hosts around 2000 events every year and there is definitely going to be something that matches with your taste when you will be in town. If there is nothing for you to see, take a behind the scenes tour. For those who are interested in fine food can also dine inside the Opera House at Bennelong.
Sydney is a wonderful place to visit. It has a lot of things to see and do. So, while touring the place don’t forget about all these points that have been mentioned above. You will enjoy more and have a hassle-free tour when you keep all these things in your mind.
