Having been lucky enough to visit Australia on a number of occasions, we’ve come to the conclusion that Sydney is nothing short of being the greatest city in the world. We’ve had some of our most memorable vacations there, and this post is designed to help you discover just what makes it such a unique and exciting place to vacation.
1. The Atmosphere
Now, we thought that Californians were the most laid-back people we’d ever come across. But one visit to Sydney sure did prove us wrong. The Aussies are so relaxed and laid-back that they’re practically lying down, and don’t we just love them for it! So, for anyone looking for an antidote to the hectic pace of modern life, a vacation to Sydney is guaranteed not to disappoint.
2. World Famous Fireworks Display
Whether we like it or not, Christmas is getting closer every day, and so, therefore, is New Years’. So, if you were planning on a vacation away over the holiday period, Sydney is well worth considering. The fireworks display that Sydney puts on every New Years’ Eve is the envy of the world, being the most technically advanced in existence. The best vantage point is Sydney Harbor, but the display can be seen from points all around the city. So, if you’re not overly keen on huge crowds, you can always find somewhere to enjoy the show that’s a little quieter.
3. The Accent
Now, we don’t know about you, but we just love the Australian accent. In fact, we don’t mind admitting that there’s something about it that makes us go a little weak at the knees! So, for us just hearing the accent is enough to convince us that Sydney and Australia in general is the place to be.
4. Amazing Wildlife
Australia boasts a landscape like no other. So, it can be of no surprise that it’s also home to a diverse range of wildlife. Indigenous species include dingoes, wombats, koala bears and of course the kangaroo. You may not get to see much wildlife in the city of Sydney itself, unless of course, you pay a visit to Taronga Zoo. Here, you’ll get to see some fascinating creatures including Tasmanian devils, chimps, and of course, kangaroos.
If you fancy seeing more of Australia’s amazing wildlife, a cruise is one great option for exploring the country. To see what deals are currently available, head on over to Cruise Megastore, as this will help to give you an idea of what such a trip will cost.
5. Great Seafood
Being so closely situated to the Pacific Ocean, means finding a good seafood restaurant in Sydney is as easy as can be. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that if you’ve not tasted seafood in Sydney then you have no idea just how amazing it can taste. So, if you fancy trying some freshly-caught shellfish, or something a little more exotic, Sydney has all the seafood bases covered.
There are so many more reasons that we just simply didn’t get time to touch on. But we think the best way of convincing yourself once and for all is by visiting the city for yourself. So, what are you waiting for?
