To be honest when I got to Sydney I wasn’t particularly impressed. It felt like any generic medium sized city in the world. It probably didn’t help that I loved Melbourne so much and was making comparisons.
However the fact that Sydney is a Coastal city gives it some absolutely lovely walks especially in the Aussie summer. There is a whole host of walks you can do but I would personally recommend a few:
- Bondi to Cooge coastal walk
- Manly (which has a great beach for a sunny day) to North Head
- If you prefer to go further a field check out the amazing Blue Mountains: Get off at Katoomba station working your way down to the Katoomba cascades and then follow the paths making your way to Leura station-absolutely stunning views.
Also for a good selection of asian food check out Spice Alley (BYOB as well).
