Seesightings in Sydney

The 6 most popular ...
So after walking on the streets for a long day, we went to see some attractions, I will describe it below but you can do a lot of more things there.


1/ The Rocks
The Rocks is an inner-city suburb and historic area of Sydney. It is located on the southern shore of Sydney Harbour adjacent to the city centre, close to where Sydney was first settled in 1788. The close proximity to Circular Quay and the views of the iconic Harbour Bridge mean that the Rocks is very popular. The Rocks Market operates each weekend, with around 100 stalls. There are numerous historic walks through the area, visiting historical buildings.



2/ Harbour Bridge
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel through arch bridge across Sydney Harbour that carries rail, car, bicycle and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district (CBD) and the North Shore. The dramatic view of the bridge, the harbour, and the nearby Sydney Opera House is an iconic image of both Sydney and Australia. So if you go in Sydney, you have to go to the bridge! It is nicknamed "The Coathanger" because of its arch-based design. You will have an amazing view of the Opera and the bay. I advise you to go there at the evening, to see the beautiful sunset!



3/ Opera House
The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre. The Sydney Opera House was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 28 June 2007. It is one of the 20th century's most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world. The Opera House was formally opened by Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia, on 20 October 1973. You have probably seen it before on TV or pictures but when you will be on the stairs, it will become amazing! A lot of people go there to, so be patient to take a great picture of this beautiful monument.





4/ Royal Botanic Garden
The 30 hectares of gardens are home to over a million specimens, some of which were planted by the newly arrived European colonists almost 200 years ago. The gardens were also home to Australia's first vegetable patch and you can visit the site where Governor Phillip planted the first European vegetables more than two centuries ago. This is a really relaxing place after a long day, you have to just laze around.



 5/ Aquarium ($35 AUD)
The aquarium contains a large variety of Australian aquatic life, displaying more than 650 species comprising more than 6,000 individual fish and other sea and water creatures from most of Australia's water habitats. The Sydney Aquarium has distinctly Australian themes and exhibits, which take visitors through the continent's waterways and marine ecosystems. I was very impressed about the variety of the aquarium and this huge glass tunnel where you can see skates, sharks, many colored fishes... A great adventure to do in family or single.

 

6/ Chinese Garden of Friendship
This is a Chinese garden in Darling Harbour and close to Chinatown in Sydney. Modeled on the typical private gardens of the Ming Dynasty, the garden offers an insight into Chinese heritage and culture.
The gardens were officially opened in 1988 as part of Sydney's bicentennial celebrations and they were named the Garden of Friendship symbolizing the bond established between China and Australia.
The garden has a number of features including the Dragon Wall symbolizing the bond between New South Wales and Guangzhou, the Water Pavilion of Lotus Fragrance, the Twin Pavilion and The Tea House that offers traditional Chinese tea and other refreshments. The garden is a popular venue for weddings, providing many beautiful backgrounds for photographs. You have to possibility to wear traditional clothes and walk around the garden with it, in order to take some memorable pictures! I did it and some people thought that I was an attraction of the Garden and they wanted to take pictures with me! Of course, I've played my role! 

Chinatown is near the Chinese Garden, so can make a short walk to there.
So there are some seesightings but there are also: Luna Park Sydney, Sydney Mint, Taronga Zoo, The Gap, Watsons Bay, Randwick Racecourse, IMAX Theater, Queen Victoria Building, Sydney Monorail, Port Jackson, Fox Studios Australia, Sydney Town Hall, Powerhouse Museum, Sydney central business district, Sydney Observatory, Australian National Maritime, Art Gallery of NSW, Museum of Sydney, Australian Museum, Kings Cross, Sydney Olympic Park, Blue Mountains…
