How To Impress Your Parents When They Visit You in Sydney

  • People who live in a different region away from their home know the pressure of when their parents come to visit. It is an inevitable situation and it is imperative that you pre-plan everything and show them a beyond memorable time so that they can head back home with a somewhat appreciation of why you have chosen a foreign city. Trying to find the best things in a city like Sydney where tourist attractions are plenty, might take a bit more imagination and creativity than you think. So here’s how to pull off an impressive list of things to do when the old folks come for a visit.


    First off, if your parents are visiting Sydney for the very first time, you might want to tick off all the reliable tourist attractions that first-timers go to. This includes the unmissable cruising experience which lets you take in the sights of the famous landmarks, Opera House and Harbour Bridge, up close. A dinner cruise in Sydney is a perfect 2-3 hour sailing experience which lets you explore the harbour with a delicious dinner menu waiting for you at the dining saloon. Even though there are many cruises for you to choose from, you can pick the luxurious glass boat with floor-to-ceiling glass windows to get that premium experience! Feel free to explore the outer decks to take in the night breeze and while you're out there click a memorable photo or two with your folks. A lunch cruise is also an ideal option if you're out during the day and are looking for a quick escape from the heat of the sun. Don’t forget to pay a visit to their onboard bars to sip one of their sparkling drinks or other beverages.


    Have you seen Sydney Harbour from the other side of the ridge? Take a train trip to Milson’s Point where there’s a beautiful walk on the waterfront next to the iconic Luna Park. If your parents are a bit into plants and gardening they will definitely love this place. Wendy’s Secret Garden is one of the hidden gems of the city or atleast has been. It is a great place to come for a quiet stroll through the lush vegetation, exotic flowers and little ponds. Even though the place has stayed a secret for over years,  recently the garden has gained its inevitable popularity among tourists as well as locals. People usually come here for a relaxing getaway from the bustling city life, for a short business meeting, for lunch or simply just to admire the enchanting garden itself. On your way back maybe you can even stop by the park to hit the ferris wheel, if your parents are up for it!

    This list won’t be complete without listing the beaches, afterall you're in Sydney. Your parents might not be the biggest fan of overcrowding and places like Bondi are usually packed with tourists, especially on weekends. Do not worry, there are numerous crowd-free beaches that are just as exciting as the more popular ones. Set outside the city, Palm Beach is one of them and is absolutely beautiful. As it is a 90-minute drive away from the city, there are many places to stop by on the way, making it a perfect one day trip. When you finally reach the beach, walk right up to the lighthouse to enjoy that incredible view at the top. If your parents are a fan of swimming, they can take a dip in the pristine waters before heading to The Boathouse for refreshments. This is also a famous spot for shooting some of the long running series of Australia, so you might bump into some celebs here!
