Hi, my readers….as I mentioned in this blog
before that Sydney is one of the cities in Australia I want to move to (and yes, I'm now in the process of applying for a partner visa
). I just spent a week there (how cool?). It was a trip full of fun, good food and great friendships. I can’t wait to share this with you guys!!
Sydney Australia is one of the oldest city
in this great nation. The city is found in the New South Wales region. Sydney is a harbour city located on the Tasman Sea, and home to two most famous buildings, namely the Sydney Opera house and Harbour Bridge. The city is one of the nation’s most cosmopolitan city. Each year, millions of tourists flock this city for a fun pact vacation. There are many tourist places in New South Wales, and whether you spend all your holiday time in the harbour city or many other vacation spots in this nation, you will have a reason to tour it on your next vacation.
Sydney Opera House
Sydney Opera House is located in New South Wales and boasts of being one of the most distinctive and famous buildings built in
the 20th century. The building also prides itself as among the art venues of most popular gigs the world over. It provides up to 18,000 square meters of usable office space out of 45,000 square meters of land. While here, I got fascinated by several things and activities to do here. At Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, for example, there are activities for both kids and the entire family. Here, I enjoyed meeting prehistoric creatures ranging from cute baby dinosaur to gigantic herbivorous and carnivore creatures in the world. If you are a classical music lover like me, then there is something for you in Buenos Aires. There are four seasons in one day when the famous four, of Vivaldi, meets Piazzolla’s tango rhythms each year. Comedy is also my thing, and for this, I toured the Playhouse to catch up with Anne Edmonds.
Australia Gems and Arts Gallery
There is no better description for the Australian Arts and Gems Gallery than an arts and gems gallery store with aboriginal arts as well as products for sale. The jewellery corner is stocked with handmade silver pieces the country’s top designers. They are made with stones
like opals, turquoise, coral, hematite, carnelian, garnet and pearls. All these products are all sourced from within the country and upon purchase; one is given a purchase certificate.
Fortune of War
Fortune of War is the oldest continuous licensed public hotel found in Sydney. I remember the bar like yesterday from its colourful reputation and is the first and last port of call for Austrian’s soldier of the generation who was involved in theatres of conflict. This bar is also remembered for being the first and last stop ashore for troops and sailors of the Country’s Armed Forces when they left Sydney Cove to defend the country.
Sydney Habour Bridge
Sydney Harbour Bridge construction was finished in 1932. The bridge is also known as The Coathanger was not only an engineering triumph but also an economic feat. My husband and I were told that during its construction which took nine years from 1923 to 1932 sadly, up to 16 men dried from its related construction work. 2 of them fell to their death. A workman called Vincent Kelly is the only known survivor after falling from
the bridge during its construction.
The Rocks Café
The Rocks Café is found deep and heart of Rocks. The café offers a spectacular dining experience for revellers allowing one to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of Rocks. It combines the modern Australian architecture along with a traditional bohemian feel which adds classy ambience. If you need a place to soak up the hustle and bustle, the Rocks has more than enough to experience, from the alfresco area to comfy downstairs booths. While there, we enjoyed a taste of the European and modern Australian cuisine that was heartily prepared by the chefs there. For breakfast, lunch or dinner or even when you want to grab a slice of cake, and freshly blended coffee, here is the place.
Sydney has got a lot to offer when it comes to its taste of markets that are dotted throughout the city. The markets there are amassed with local designers, artisan wares, gifts, unique gifts as well as fresh and delicious produce. To mention a few markets, they include The Rocks Markets, Paddy’s Markets, Sydney Fish Market, Cambridge Markets EQ
for fresh produce to mention a few.
Get Away from the Downtown
One of my bucket list to stay in a beautiful treehouse. So I thought...what it would be if I could stay in a treehouse in the city I love? So here we are, I decided to get away a little bit from downtown Sydney. I searched for the best Treehouse in NSW
and a great list showed up, the area has a lot to offer. The one I picked was Jemby Rinjah EcoLodge. It was a very lovely, super quiet, good price and not too far from Sydney. There are a lot of tree homes that you can call your own. Treehouses in NSW will offer you a great little getaway. They range from basic but nice treehouses to large and complex ones. Here you will enjoy outstanding hospitality which will be extremely handy in arranging your van and driver for less. You will also find anything for your budget while at NSW. Here are a few best options to try while at NSW; Broken Head Bodhi Treehouse, The Kyoto Mountain Lodge, Love Cabins Blue Mountains, River Room, Bellingen Treehouse and Treehouse, Magic Habitat to name a few.
