Feast in the Sydney Tower

One of the most common touristic attractions is the notion of food tourism. Still, with the more and more prominent globalization you are no longer that restricted to the tastes of the world even in your own hometown. However, there is more to a proper feast than what menu offers. The key lies in the three golden words of Real-estate location, location, location. Do not miss an opportunity to feast in the Sydney Tower, the tallest building in Sydney and the second tallest observation tower in the southern hemisphere, now serving as an elegant and classy French food restaurant.

Go wine tasting

When people first mention wine and wine tasting, most people first think of France or northern Italy, still not many know that Australian wines are amongst the best in the world. In the vicinity of Sydney, there is a region called the Hunter Valley, renowned for its long tradition of quality winemaking and its incredible vineyards. Take a short trip from Sydney and taste some of its incredible wines amazing both in taste and in their variety since there are over 30 types. You can even buy some wine to take home, to treasure as a beautiful memory or to treat your visitors with; a win-win scenario either way.

Visit a Featherdale Wildlife Park

Now for a visit to Australia think of something that is unique here and that you couldn’t do anywhere else. Because of the hundreds of thousands of years of isolation, Australia has developed some of the most indigenous life forms there are in the world. Use this knowledge to your benefit and do not miss an opportunity to feed a koala or see a kangaroo. However cute, some of these Australian species can be quite dangerous in the wilderness so it is best and by far safer to meet them in Featherdale Wildlife Park.

As you can already see, there are many things to see and even more things to do in Sydney so do not miss a chance to visit this magnificent city. Still, this list, any list, is unfortunately too short to capture everything that is interesting and fun in Sydney. The only way to truly get a grasp on this enormous amount of opportunities is to visit Sydney on your own.
