Things to do in Sydney

Sydney: Sample the best of the harbour city

I have lived in Sydney for half my life, and have done hundreds of experiences in that time. So I’ve compiled a list of amazing things to do in the harbour city.

When people think of Sydney they generally picture the beautiful harbour. This curated list features some spectacular water activities, but also goes beyond the waves. There is so much to learn and do in Sydney; cultural experiences that demonstrate the rich and vivid life of the city. If you’re new to Sydney you must do the iconic Bridge Climb to take in the sheer beauty and vastness of Sydney. There are also many culinary delights and cooking classes: Mexican, seafood and even specialist dessert baking which I did with my good friend Emma Isaacs. I also learnt to cook a proper steak in a barbecue cooking course, and my husband and children thank me for it. I’ve been on walking tours, ghost tours, in helicopters, bi-planes, light planes and hot air balloons. I’ve been on Harley Davidsons and pushbikes; in V8 race cars, rally cars and off-road vehicles. I’ve had massages, facials and been on wellness experiences. I’ve exercised my creative juices learning to sculpt, paint and mix even a cocktail or two.

There is so much to do in beautiful Sydney – here are my favourite experiences.
