After my perfect arrival and welcoming to Australia in Coogee Beach, the sun went away and the clouds came. Unfortunately, it rained and was cloudy for the first few days after I arrived. Instead of moping, I got off my bottom and got walking. I decided to explore the down town Sydney area by foot while saving the beaches for upcoming sunny days.
I spent two days roaming around the Sydney area taking in as many of the main sights as I could. Sydney is huge, but most of the main sights are within walking distance from down town which is good for me. My favorite way to see a city is by foot. If you have the time and enjoy walking, you can walk Sydney in two days.
Here are some of the sights you don’t want to miss:
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Sydney Opera House
St. Mary’s Cathedral
Sydney Tower Eye
City Market & Sydney’s Paddy’s Market
Chinese Friendship Garden
Queen Victoria Building
Circular Quay & Wharf
Bennelong Precinct & The Domain
Government House Palace Gardens
Currently, Sydney is brightly coloured with its Art off the Wall, Sydney Living Colour Summer 2014 showcase which is displayed all over the city. My favorite street art displays can be found in Hyde Park, Martin Place, and Cathedral Square. The bright flower creations are arranged in various shapes and patterns. I saw many more sights throughout my visit to Sydney, but the majority of sights were seen on my two day hike of the city. Among the sights I saw, these were among my favorites.
