    Sydney is usually seen on the top of the bucket-list cities of many people we’ve come across. And rightly so, with over a 100 beaches, iconic landmarks, national parks, a vibrant art and culture scene, and a diverse population, it’s no wonder the city sees over a million visitors every year. Although let's be real, Sydney is a vast cosmopolitan city with more than enough attractions that cannot be comfortably fit into a 2 or 3-day itinerary. So you need to accept that you won’t see it all and hone your itinerary according to your interests. But do not fret, we have spent enough time in Sydney to fine tune an action-packed three days into your itinerary.

     

    Day 1

    Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise

    Cruising is one of the all-the favourite activities to end a remarkable day out in Sydney. But what if you can also start your day with one ? Lunch Cruises are a great way to kick off your day and what makes it a cut above the rest among other fancy restaurants is the fact that you can enjoy a slew of harbour attractions in a short amount of time. Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison, the list goes on. Cruise on the multi-million dollar catamaran and you get to capture exclusive photos of this vista from its three large outer decks.


    A Dinner Cruise in Sydney Harbour is your next best option. If you're already packed for the day, you can always opt for a dinner cruise and experience the night views of the city and its major landmarks, along with a sumptuous array of dishes. You can also take advantage of the fully licensed bar onboard to purchase your favourite drinks and beverages.

     

    The Rocks and CBD

    If you’re into discovering how the city came to be, then head to The Rocks where you will be enlightened by colonial-era architecture, museums, guided tours, cobblestoned laneways and more. The region is also home to some excellent cafes, bars and restaurants including the legendary Glenmore, which is dubbed as the “best rooftop garden in the city.” If you visit during the weekends, you can also check out the Rocks Market to collect some creative souvenirs, native clothes and even fresh produce. For a more luxurious shopping scene, you can head to Westfield in the city centre, which boasts an assortment of both major international and local Australian brands.

     

    Day 2

    Blue Mountains

    A day trip to this natural wonder of Australia is a must, especially if you're in the city for the very first time. The easiest way to witness the best attractions this part of the city has to offer is to hop on a guided-tour. There are an endless number of options for you to choose from including the helicopter and 4WD tours. Choose a package that suits your budget and explore the vastness of this splendid natural landscape!

     

    Day 3

    Get to Know the Locals

    Who’s hungry for breakfast with a koala?! The last day of your Sydney itinerary can be put aside for spending time with the locals, both the furry ones and the Sydneysiders. Start your final day at Wildlife Sydney Zoo and get up and personal with a koala; you can also club it with a SEA Life Aquarium ticket. Later, you can make a quick visit to Hyde park, Queen Victoria Building, and St. Mary’s Cathedral, all beautiful buildings inside out. You can grab a takeaway from The Canopy and enjoy it at the Hyde Park Chess Board, after which you might want to head to Inner West and explore the funky and art side of the city. Here, you can spend the entire evening crawling through the many bars and pubs, and maybe even catch a live show.
