Airport travel guide

Home to perhaps the most famous opera house in the world and countless other attractions, Sydney is Australia’s most visited city for a reason. While there’s plenty to see and do in this diverse metropolis, Sydney is also surrounded by plenty of fascinating attractions that you can easily explore if you rent a car. These are five of the most places to visit in and around Sydney:

  • The Art Gallery of New South Wales. One of the most important museums in all of Australia, this is a must-visit place for any art lover. In addition to works by European masters like Van Gogh and Picasso, the museum also features art by many famous Australians, as well as fascinating examples of various types of Aboriginal art.
  • The Royal Botanic Gardens. Visiting this place, which is also known simply as The Gardens, is one of the best ways to enjoy some greenery without leaving the city limits. Having recently celebrated its 200th birthday, the mighty gardens are divided into several sections that let visitors explore native Australian, as well as exotic flora.
  • The Rocks. Sydney’s historic district lies in the heart of Sydney and features some of Sydney's oldest and most historic buildings, including restored 19th-century sandstone buildings, cobbled laneways, and heritage-listed sites. Visitors can take a walking tour of the area, exploring the winding streets and alleys and learning about the district's fascinating history.
  • Darling Harbour. Darling Harbour is a vibrant entertainment and tourist precinct in the heart of Sydney. The neighborhood offers a range of activities and attractions for visitors of all ages, from world-class museums and aquariums to waterfront restaurants and bars. Visitors can stroll along the boardwalk, admiring the stunning harbor and city skyline views. One of the main attractions in Darling Harbour is the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, which offers a fascinating glimpse into the underwater world of Australia's marine life. Visitors can see a range of exotic species, including sharks, rays, and sea turtles, and learn about their habitats and behaviors. Another popular attraction is the Australian National Maritime Museum, which celebrates Australia's rich maritime history through various interactive exhibits and displays. Visitors can explore a range of ships, including a replica of Captain Cook's HMB Endeavour, and learn about Australia's naval and maritime history. Darling Harbour is also home to various restaurants and bars, offering a diverse range of dining options, from casual cafes and fast food outlets to fine dining establishments and waterfront bars.
  • The beaches of Sydney. Sydney is renowned for its stunning beaches, offering a unique blend of natural beauty, crystal-clear waters, and a relaxed coastal vibe. Bondi Beach is the most famous, attracting visitors worldwide with its golden sands and rolling surf. Visitors can enjoy a range of water sports and activities, including surfing, swimming, and sunbathing, while the beachfront cafes and restaurants offer a range of delicious food and drink options.

Other popular beaches include Balmoral Beach and Palm Beach.
  • Blue Mountains National Park. One of the most famous and most-visited nature areas in Australia, Blue Mountains National Park is a great place to get familiar with the wildlife of the southeastern part of the country. Made up of an extensive network of walking trails, the area is home to powerful streams and rapid brooks, impressive waterfalls, dramatic cliffs, and a variety of flora and fauna. The closest entrance to the national park is just some 63 km (40 miles) west of Sydney and can be reached in about one hour. About ten other national parks are also located within a two-hour drive from the city. Katoomba is a charming mountain town in the heart of the Blue Mountains, just a few hours west of Sydney. Known for its stunning natural beauty and lovely heritage architecture, Katoomba is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. One of the main attractions of Katoomba is the Three Sisters, a trio of towering rock formations that are said to represent three sisters from an Aboriginal legend. Visitors can take a scenic walk along the cliff tops, enjoying breathtaking views of the Three Sisters and the surrounding valleys. Another popular attraction in Katoomba is Scenic World, a theme park offering thrilling rides and attractions. Visitors can take a cable car or a railway down the valley, enjoying stunning views of the mountains and rainforest. Just a short drive from Katoomba is the town of Blackheath, home to the spectacular Pulpit Rock lookout. From this vantage point, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the Grose Valley, including the iconic Seven Sisters rock formations.
  • Wollongong. Much smaller and more easygoing than Sydney, the third-largest city of New South Wales has its fair share of attractions. These include a large number of beautiful beaches and opportunities for water sports like surfing, but also the Science Space and Planetarium, Wollongong Botanical Gardens, and even the city’s own rainforest (located inside the nearby Budderoo National Park). Located about 90 km (56 miles) south of Sydney, Wollongong takes 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach.
  • Gosford. Located just an hour’s drive north of Sydney, Gosford is one of the most scenic coastal towns in New South Wales. The area is home to many beaches, including Forrester’s Beach which many locals consider to be among the most beautiful in the country. One of the most popular destinations on the Central Coast is Terrigal Beach. The long stretch of golden sand and crystal-clear waters are perfect for swimming, surfing, and sunbathing. Visitors can also enjoy a range of water sports and activities, including kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing. In addition to the beach, Terrigal is home to a range of high-end restaurants, cafés, and boutique shops, making it the perfect destination for a relaxing day out. Visitors can stroll along the waterfront, stopping to sample some of the delicious seafood and wine the region is famous for. Other attractions include the Australian Rainforest Sanctuary, the Australian Reptile Park, and Brisbane Water National Park. Gosford can also serve as a gateway to the Central Coast region famous for its coastline and lagoons.
  • Canberra, the capital city of Australia, is located approximately 275 kilometers southwest of Sydney Airport. Despite being a relatively small city, Canberra has various cultural attractions, historic landmarks, and natural beauty. One of the most popular attractions in Canberra is the Australian War Memorial, which offers a fascinating insight into the history of Australia's involvement in major wars and conflicts worldwide. Visitors can explore the galleries, exhibitions, and interactive displays and pay their respects at the memorial's commemorative areas. Another popular attraction is the National Gallery of Australia, which houses an extensive Australian and international art collection, including paintings, sculptures, and multimedia installations. Visitors can also stroll around the stunning sculpture garden, which features a range of unique and thought-provoking artworks. Canberra is also home to a range of natural beauty, including Lake Burley Griffin. This artificial lake sits in the city's heart and offers a range of recreational activities such as sailing, kayaking, and cycling.

Australia is an amazingly beautiful country which certainly merits a visit. Travelling down the Great Pacific Road, Emerald Coast, and Great Ocean Road are few destinations that should be added to every nature lover's list. The country is well suited for enjoying outdoor activities, whether aquatic or terrestrial, and is very accommodating for tourism. Consider, however, travelling there in off-peak season to take further advantage of better pricing on accommodations.

An amazing experience from start to finish. Only made possible by receiving our vehicle from No Birds. No issues with our Hybrid Car so whole experience of driving around the country was so effortless. ( we worried at first) . Information given at office was helpful so each place visited was relaxing. Blue Mountains were stunning! Nelson Bay was relaxing and beautiful. Avoca was wonderful to spend Christmas and finally Had New Year in Centre of Sydney. Fire Works and celebrations there were out of this world. Whole experience in Sydney visiting Bondi Beach, Coogee Beach Sea World. Sydney Tower was a lifetime experience topped off with views of iconic Sydney Opera House and Bridge. Paddy’s Market was an easy visit and frequently visited for food. Queen Victoria Building was outstanding. Quality or build and architecture was fantastic. Anzac memorial building was truly emotional and definitely worth a visit. Walking through the nearby park was beautiful and restful. St Mary’s Church was visited and you definitely deserve a moment of peace and wonder at the beautiful building and sculptures. So many great and spectacular places to visit we were spoiled for choice.

Exploring downtown Sydney, riding the ferry, watching the sunset from Harbor Bridge, and visiting Bondi and Manli beaches were all fabulous experiences. We enjoyed every minute of our time there.

We hired an SUV with 2x car seats for my kids and it was perfect. Great boot space as we were able to fit all our luggage in the car and drive down to Canberra from Sydney. Would 100% recommend and book again

Took a ride through the Great Pacific Drive, from Sydney to Melbourne by the coast. Scenic views of the ocean and lakes. We then headed into Phillip Island and then drove up the Dandenong Ranges. The Subaru took us through an incredibly scenic and fun trip.

I stayed in Palm Beach, loved the area. Easy to take a ferry around the waterways. The Patonga Pub is a good spot to visit for lunch via a ferry ride from Palm Beach. The adjoining suburbs to Palm Beach are worth a drive around to the beaches.
