Top ways to enter Sydney

  • Sydney Airport: The busiest in Australia, Sydney Airport hosts flights to and from all of the other continents of the world.

City facts

  • Sydney has a humid subtropical climate with very warm summers and mild winters. Inland city districts are generally much warmer than the ones that are by the ocean and can experience extreme heat during the summer months.
  • Although not the capital, Sydney is the largest city in Australia. More than 5 million people, or roughly every fifth Australian, live here.

Top sights and activities

  • Sydney Harbour. Once the location of the first European settlement in the area, Sydney Harbour’s Circular Quay is now perhaps the most picturesque and the best known part of town. It is home of the world-famous as Sydney Opera, as well as to a number of other landmarks and attractions.
  • SS Ayrfield. Once an old coal and oil ship and then a written-off wreck, SS Ayrfield has impossibly turned into a floating forest of mangroves. The unique sight can be observed from the nearby shore of the Homebush Bay area where you can also find four other shipwrecks, as well as nature areas like Bicentennial Park, a system of parklands and mangrove wetlands.
  • The Sydney Tower Eye. The highest point in Sydney and thus offering the best 360 views from its top, the Tower Eye offers a great impression of both how immense is Sydney and how sparsely populated the rest of the state is to this day.
  • Art Gallery of New South Wales. One of the most important museums in Australia, Sydney’s main gallery is home to a wealth of fascinating paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other types of art. The gallery hosts the works of virtually all of the most notable Australian artists, as well as pieces by world-famous masters like van Gogh, Monet, and Rubens. There are also exhibitions dedicated to Indigenous Australian Art and Asian Art. Located in The Domain, a heritage area with plenty to see and do, the gallery can be easily reached from anywhere in the city center.
  • The Rocks. The historic district of The Rocks lies in the heart of Sydney.

One of the main attractions in The Rocks is the weekend market, which offers a range of unique and handmade products, including crafts, jewelry, and artwork.

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.

One of the highlights of the Royal Botanic Garden is the themed gardens, including the Palm Grove, the Rose Garden, and the Herb Garden.

Traffic and parking

  • One of the largest road hazards in Australia are the wildlife. Take extra caution when driving in bad weather or after dark as this is when most of the collisions with wildlife take place.
  • Mobile coverage is very rarely available outside of major highways and population centers, so take extra caution when traveling in nature areas.
  • Another great risk when traveling outside of main highways is the heat. The temperatures can reach extremes very easily, especially during the summer months and in inland areas. Always stay properly hydrated and set out your route in advance to be able to supplement your water supplies.
  • Driving under influence laws differ from territory to territory in Australia. In New South Wales, the legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers and drivers with provisional licences. Exceeding the limit can lead to large fines and a driver licence ban.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The primary, nationwide emergency number in Australia is 000. The New South Wales Poisons Information Centre number is 131 126.

Toll roads

There are a number of toll roads in Australia, mainly in the states of New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. In New South Wales, there are nine currently active toll roads, which is more than in the rest of the country combined.

Most toll roads in Australia use an “open roll system” with mainline barrier toll points. All toll roads in Australia use a cashless payment system. You can purchase a prepaid pass for most toll roads. Some rental cars in Australia are equipped with an electronic toll transponder, the price of which is usually included in the rental price. Ask your car rental supplier about it in advance. 

Different toll roads are operated by different companies, so there is no nationwide fee system in place. 

For more information about the toll roads in Sydney, visit the Sydney Visitor Guide.

Ideas for day trips

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.

From this vantage point, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the Grose Valley, including the iconic Seven Sisters rock formations.
  • The Central Coast. The Central Coast is a beautiful region located just north of Sydney, offering a perfect blend of coastal beauty, stunning beaches, and charming seaside towns. 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.

  • Blue Mountains.

Even if you won’t get to see a wild kangaroo or swamp wallaby, you’ll still come back happy and relaxed. Keep in mind that despite their higher elevation, the Blue Mountains can still experience extreme heat during Australian summer, so it’s good to set out your travel routes in advance and to always stay properly hydrated. About 100 km (60 miles) from Sydney, the Blue Mountains can be reached in 90 minutes by car.
  • Royal National Park. Established in 1879, this is the oldest national park in Australia (and the second-oldest in the world after Yellowstone).

Known for its scenic beaches and coastal rainforest, it is home to a variety of flora and fauna.
  • Bondi Beach. The crescent-shaped Bondi Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world and a must-visit destination for anyone visiting Sydney. Located just a few kilometers from Sydney's city center, the beach is renowned for its golden sand, clear blue water, and world-class surf, making it a popular destination for swimmers, surfers, and sunbathers. Visitors to Bondi Beach can take a stroll along the promenade, enjoying the stunning views of the ocean, or take a dip in the ocean to cool off on a hot summer's day. A range of water sports and activities are also available, including surfing, paddleboarding, and kayaking.
  • Mosman, Balmoral Beach and Taronga Zoo. Balmoral Beach is a stunning, crescent-shaped beach in the suburb of Mosman (Lower North Shore of Sydney).

There is also a range of water sports and activities available, including kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling.

Visitors can walk along the tree-lined streets, admiring the beautiful heritage homes and gardens, or explore the many parks and reserves in the area. One of the highlights of Mosman is Taronga Zoo, one of the world's most iconic zoos, located just a short distance from Balmoral Beach. Visitors can see a range of native and exotic animals, including koalas, kangaroos, and giraffes, and enjoy stunning views of Sydney Harbor from the zoo's many vantage points.
  • Palm Beach. Located 45 km in the northernmost part of Sydney’s CBD, Palm Beach is a beautiful and exclusive suburb. Known for its stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, and luxurious homes, Palm Beach is a popular destination for locals and tourists. Visitors to Palm Beach can stroll along the golden sands, enjoying the views of the ocean and the surrounding bushland.

Further destinations

  • Hunter Valley. About three hours drive north of Sydney, Hunter Valley offers the impossible combination of being a paradise for both foodies and hikers. Its cheeses, oils, and restaurants that serve produce grown in the valley are famous far and wide, but they’ll taste even better after a full day of walking through eucalyptus fields and learning about local kangaroo and other wildlife populations. Some 240 km (150 miles) north of Sydney, the Hunter region can be traveled to in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
  • Canberra. Although not located on the ocean and perhaps less spectacular than the huge cities of Australia, the capital can still be a fun place to visit thanks to its historical heritage, interesting museums, and vast outdoor areas.
  • Wollemi National Park. About 30 times larger than The Royal, Wollemi is a three-hour drive from Sydney. A much more remote destination, it has no paved roads, so you should ask your rental car supplier if they permit you to drive there — and joining a tour or hiring a guide is also a good idea for first-time visitors. It might seem like a challenge, but if you’re willing to do the necessary planning, you’ll be rewarded with a truly unique destination that has sites like the glow worm tunnel and plenty of wilderness. 
  • Melbourne. Sydney’s friendly rival is about nine hours drive south, but it’s still well worth doing the distance to experience another spectacular big city with its unique history, culture, and atmosphere. If the distance between these two still feels too big, take a break at the Kosciuszcko National Park or the Alpine National Park that’ll be on your way. The neighboring Namadgi National Park just south of the city is also worth a visit. Located some 280 km (174 miles) southwest of Sydney, Canberra can be traveled to in 3 hours and 20 minutes.

Sydney was great. I was here for my son’s graduation and did the usual touristy thing.

I was in Sydney to recuperate from hard work in England, sleep most of the time, little shopping and driving around, manage to drive under the Sydney harbour bridge though, which was my ambition.

I went to Canberra and moved around the city. For frequent movements having a car is very helpful but parking is a problem so having clear idea about parking facilities before hand is important.

In Sydney, best is to avoid toll . Use your GPS and set it to avoid tolls . Time difference between travelling under tunnels with tolls and roads without toll isn’t much.
