Is Australia on your travel bucket list? Perhaps, you’re planning a future trip to Sydney, one of Australia’s famous cities. You’re wondering what you can get up to once you land. Turns out there are endless ways to spend your time in Sydney. Below is a list of four of the best nature attractions Sydney has to offer. Read on and let your imagination run wild.

Manly to Spit Bridge Walk

This is a Grade 3 6 mile walking route that will take you to the tidal pool in Fairlight, Clontarf Beach, Reef Beach, Crater Cover, Grotto Point Lighthouse, and finally the Spit Bridge. It’s a good way to get some exercise while taking in the stunning views of Sydney’s tall cliffs and green tree groves.

The walk is self-guided and free. Drinking fountains are available on the route, so carry a reusable bottle before you head out.

Whale Watching at Manly

Every year, thousands of whales migrate along the coast of New South Wales, Australia. The migration period is between May and November and is one of the most beautiful scenes you will see in this life.

If you happen to be in Australia, during that time, you might want to consider this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sydney’s many coastal walks, such as the Manly to Spit Bridge Walk, take you to excellent places where you can whale watch. Special boat tours also leave at various points in Sydney Harbour, so check out Sydney’s official tourism website for further information.

Visit the Royal Botanic Garden 

The Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney covers thirty acres of the city’s land. It was established in 1816 and is officially the oldest scientific institution in Australia.

As a result, it is home to an impressive collection of plants and botanical from home turf in Australia and from countries overseas. There is a free guided walk around the gardens every day. However, if you prefer to discover the place on your own, a downloadable app offers visitors self-guided walking tours and information on the garden’s current events.

Entry to the gardens is free. The opening and closing times of the Royal Botanic Garden vary from month to month, so please check the official website for further details.
