Sightseeing

Sydney Harbour

Most of Sydney lies alongside its main harbour which has been witness to the changes over the past 200 years. The best way to view the harbour is to take a sailing boat around it, and get a feel of the place. Hop into a ferry from Circular Quay or better still hire a helicopter for a 15 minutes ride. Sydney Harbour Bridge completed in 1932, connects the northern and southern halves of Sydney and a walk, jog or a bike ride along the bridge gives one a good view of the city.

Sydney Tower, a long thin tower with an observation deck and revolving restaurants set 305m above the ground offers spectacular views of the Blue Mountains.

Daredevil Alert! Scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge on a climbing tour.

Sydney Harbour National Park lies around the harbour tracks and protects the bush land, walking tracks, scenic lookouts and the wealth of aboriginal carvings and historic sites that dot the area. It also includes islands like Fort Denison and Goat Island (earlier a quarantine station and now has the set of the TV show, Water Rats, which you can even tour).

Sydney Cove on the Northern Shore holds a host of the attractions. The Rocks, where the first European settlements were located is a rocky spur of land on the western side of Sydney Cove. It was a virtual hell-hole full of convicts, whalers, prostitutes and street gangs. As the settlement grew and began to prosper, it became an area full of warehouses.

This historic site was completely demolished when the Harbour Bridge was constructed, was restored in the 70s and is now an area full of narrow cobbled streets, colonial buildings, converted warehouses and tea- rooms. It is a great place to stroll around and soak in the atmosphere. Rock’s Square has entertainment and the weekend Rock’s Market can get you a bargain. Miller”s Point, Campbell Cove and Colonial House Museum offer more to do. The prestigious Sydney Theatre and other dance companies are located nearby on Pier Four.

Circular Quay is one of the focal points of Sydney. Originally a European settlement and a shipping centre, it is now a commuting hub and recreational area. It has a ferry station, Overseas Passenger Terminal, harbour walkways, fisher folk etc.

Fix a rendezvous at the Circular Quay, site of the world famous Sydney Opera House. Designed by Danish architect Joern Utzon, it”s shell like structure was actually inspired by palm fronds. Built for a grand sum of $102 million, it was completed in 1973 after lots of politicking and acrimonious delays, so much so that in 1995, an opera was staged on the making of the Opera House! Appropriately, it was called The Eighth Wonder! It is a fabulous experience to attend an opera here, but tickets are expensive and need to be booked well in advance. The cheaper tickets or restricted view tickets will leave you with a crick in the neck. Tours of the opera house and backstage tours are also available.

A bunch of narrow lanes go from the Circular Quay to the City Centre. On the way you can pass Macquarie Place, hop into the Museum of Sydney or see the obelisk erected in 1818, till you reach the City Centre. The centre of the city Martin Place is a pedestrian mall extending a few streets and lined with some of Sydney”s buildings and monuments like the Victorian Post Office and financial institutions. There are lots of places to sit, eat and bask in the sun. There”s even an amphitheatre for entertainment. Other sights include the Town Hall, St. Andrew”s Cathedral, and the Queen Victoria Building, a massive shopping complex that takes up an entire block. Some of the city’s trendy shopping arcades are in this area. The outrageously expensive Marble Bar and the State Theatre are close by. Some of the more interesting areas in the southwest are Chinatown and Spanish Town, two thriving, lively hubs of their respective communities.

Darling Harbour -no connection to anyone”s loved one, but loved by all -is a huge waterfront leisure park catering to fun and leisure for families and tourists.

The places to see here are the spectacular museums – the Sydney Aquarium and three ‘oceanariums’ moored in the harbour have fascinating exhibits of marine life, sharks and coral gardens. Really special are the transparent underwater tunnels, open daily from 9:30 am to 9 .pm. The National Maritime Museum showcases the story of the Australian people’s links with the sea. From aboriginal yachts to Vietnamese refugee boats, it explores every aspect of Australian maritime life. It is open daily till 5 pm.

Possibly Sydney’s most attractive museum is the Powerhouse Museum, which exhibits decorative arts, social history, science and technology with an emphasis on hands on interaction and education through enjoyment. Anything and everything about Aussie life is exhibited in this most unusual museum. It opens daily till 5 pm.

Other highlights of Darling Harbour include IMAX, the world”s biggest movie screen. Massive images in 3D will make the movie buff go bonkers( tickets are without any concessions.) Sydney Fish Markets and Australia”s Northern Territory and The Outback Centre, a retail outlet for aboriginal artefacts and tourist agency for the Northern Territory are the other interesting places to check out and shop in.

Macquarie St. has some of the earliest public buildings in Sydney. The Mint building, Parliament House and State Library are some of the better -known buildings. The Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Australian Museum of Natural History are two excellent museums worth a visit.

Sydney, like it’s other Australian counterparts has a plethora of Parks to stroll, jog and picnic in, the most popular being the Royal Botanic Gardens. Established in 1816, it includes the site of the colony”s first paltry vegetable patch that is preserved as a First Farm exhibit.

Other parks include the Domain, Hyde Park (the colony”s first cricket pitch), the Chinese Garden and Centennial Park with horse riding tracks and sports pitches, Lane Cove National Park and Pyrmont Point Park.

Kings Cross is the brash hangout for those looking for a mix of good night life, cheap hotels, drugs, classy nightclubs, designer cafes and up-market hotels. It attracts all kinds of people looking for all manner of things, be it tourists, night revellers, low lives or sailors. During the Vietnam War, it was the vice centre of Australia. It’s a haven for prostitutes, strip joints and drugs. It can get a bit rowdy at times but is the right place for good adventure. Lots of hostels ensure that loads of travellers pass through this area every season. One can meet fellow travellers and even hook up for a trip. No trip to Sydney is complete without going to Kings Cross. Woolloomooloo, one of Sydney”s oldest areas is nearby and is the place to go for midnight chicken and mushroom meals.

Inner East harbours Oxford Street, one of the best night-life areas in Sydney. The presence of a vibrant and vocal gay community is probably the reason for it’s flamboyant aura. Sydney is where the Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras festival takes place every year, attracting visitors from all across the world. Its full of shops, cafes, nightclubs and bars and is the most happening place in Sydney. Darlinghurst is another area for pub hoppers and those wanting to hang out at the outdoor cafes. Sydney’s Jewish Museum hosts exhibits of Australian Jewish history and the Holocaust. Surrey Hills has good pubs for those who want to pub- crawl; Paddington with its Saturday Village Bazaar and over 20 art galleries is a good place to head out to. For those wanting to skinny dip, there is always the nude beach near South Head at Lady Bay, in the eastern suburbs.

Bondi Beach is the beach bums and surf-rats paradise. A suburb of Sydney, its local culture is a blend of Jewish, Italian and Aussie and itinerant expats from UK and New Zealand. Apart from surfing, beach volleyball (it was the location for the Olympic beach volleyball final) and sun bathing, Bondi Beach hosts the Sunday Bondi Beach Market at the local school, and a host of cafes, shops and hotels.

There are aboriginal rock engravings on the golf course in North Bondi. Tamarama (a great place to surf), Bronte, Coogee and Clovelly Bay are other lovely beaches to the south. Clovelly Bay has a wheelchair access place for the chair bound to reach water’s edge.

Beach Alert! Watch out for riptide warnings on all beaches.

Inner West borders the University of Sydney and its areas of Glebe, Newtown and Leichhardt sport a mix of students, gays and young professionals. Italian eateries in Leichhardt enjoy a good reputation while Glebe is known for its Buddhist temple and aromatherapy. Newton is the favourite beat of students and renovators, and has a thriving social and sexual subculture.

Manly is the biggest attraction on the North Shore with its holiday resort like atmosphere, ocean beaches and ferry wharf. Ocean World with its sharks and stingrays is wildly exciting. On Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, divers dive in to feed the sharks and there”s a great display of dare devilry. The Quarantine Station nearby is reminiscent of the time (1832 till 1984) suspected disease carriers were housed there. Night -time ghost tours take place thrice a week. Further up north lie Palm Beach, Curl, Pittwater (a sailing spot), with some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia.

Ghost Alert! Take the night tour and hustle up some ghosts.

Shopping

Shopping centres are Queen Victoria Building, Piccadilly, Centrepoint, Skygarden and Strand. Thursdays are the days for a spot of late night shopping when all stores remain open till 9 pm. Flea markets in Paddington Village, Glebe, Bondi Beach Public School are a few of the many great places for bargains hunters. Flea markets at the Rocks are very touristy, though the Tarpeian Market near the Sydney Opera House has a far more beautiful location in its favour.

Eating Joints

Dining out in a multicultural city like Sydney is the gourmand”s and the gourmet”s dream come true as food styles span the gamut from nouvelle to classic. Chinatown will give you the best of the east. Darling Harbour and Oxford St. are some of the trendier places with slick bars, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Glebe Point Road was Sydney”s main eating out street and is still warm and cosy. Paddington sports Japanese, Mediterranean and French -Italian restaurants. Each area has its own specialties and every place has its share of cheap and expensive restaurants. Sydney Morning Herald”s Good Food Guide is of enormous help in deciding what to eat and where.

You can find a café, restaurant or a snack bar on almost every street corner. Darling Harbour, Kings Street and Parramatta are famous food streets.

Entertainment in Sydney is a delight as well and the options will gladden the hearts of all night birds. Whether it’s brash Kings Cross or flamboyant Oxford Street with its concentration of gay and lesbian bars or pubs at The Rocks, Sydney is swinging at night, every night. The Sydney Morning Herald’s pullout ‘Metro’ is published on Friday and lists all the events in town for the coming week. There”s loads of theatre, cinema, comedy and cabaret to keep you busy. There is also lots of free entertainment happening in town, so look up the paper and go party without paying.
