A juxtaposition of unlimited blue beaches, colourful laid back towns, lush landscapes, playful animal and bird life, happy and chilled out locals, warm sunny weather all year round( well almost), one of the oldest national park of the world in its vicinity teamed with finger licking local(and international) food; it’s easy to be overwhelmed when you’re in Australia’s very own “Global City”- Sydney… Soul Indian Journey shares with you a two of three-part series on ten reasons we love Sydney.
- Come summer or winter, Sydney has events lined up for everyone! We can enjoy a concert/celebration of colors/ movie night under the sky in summers and Vivid Sydney light and sound show with fireworks and music at the darling harbour/opera house/city in the winters
2. There are unlimited camping options around and within Sydney. How about camping next to a zoo, in a historic island in the middle of the harbor/ camping by white sand beach with occasional visit of Kangaroos/possums, camping inside a national park? Yes you can enjoy all this and more, just take your camping gear and go.
3. Sydney has its very own Lesbian Mardi Eras and Gay celebration, with interesting line of events to wow anyone, no matter their tribe.
4. While people in other cities of the world may just drive to work or town, Sydneysiders have a range of options from trains, ferries, water taxis, buses, free bus shuttles ( for CBD only), etc. You will never feel the urge to take your car out, with so many means of transportation around you. Now that’s a sign of a successful and sustainable city according to us.
5. Drive 90 min north of Sydney, and explore a destination that is a perfect juxtaposition of beach and desert sand! Yes, Anna Bay in Port Stephens boasts of sand boarding and surfing, all in one spot. Now that a good deal!
6. We love that there are so many walks within the city to keep us active on a nice sunny day! Try Bondi to Coogee, Manly to Spit Bridge, Seven bridges walk or Watson’s Bay walk.
7. If you want to spend a quiet day with family or picnic with friends without going too far from the city, take your picnic basket and head to Centennial Park, Royal Botanical Gardens or Hyde Park.
8. For those who want to experience Sydney in all new way, why not try the breathtaking helicopter ride which takes you over the beaches, Opera house, the harbor etc. or climb the harbor bridge.
9. If you love exploring cities by foot (like us), Sydney provides you with the best sights and is very walker friendly. Try walking from Central Station to Circular quay or around “The Rocks”. You will love it!
10. Sydneysiders know that they are just a 3 hours’ drive from the whitest sand beach in the world, Hyams Beach (Jervis Bay) where they can enjoy camping, go for dolphin tour, explore secluded bays or cycle around the town!
