Top places to visit in Sydney

As a global company, we’re always keen to look out for new places that we can take our award-winning programs to. FDM’s expansion into Australia started in January 2017 and we now have a full team, which we introduced to you back in July. Hannah Dewar recently re-located from our Glasgow office to Sydney, as the Australia Recruitment Lead. Despite never visiting Australia before making the move, Hannah left Scotland in the summer and has created a handy guide of top places to visit in Sydney.

 

Bondi to Coogee coastal walk

You will find yourself stopping at some beautiful beaches on this walk which is around six kilometres long. It is a great walk for a sunny day, but remember your sun cream and a water bottle as it can get incredibly hot during the summer.

Spiced Alley

Next on my list is one place I haven’t visited yet, but I’ve heard so many good reviews about it. You’ll find lots of Asian restaurants and street food vendors with a ‘bring your own drink’ policy. It’s definitely on my list.

Establishment Bar

This venue offers salsa dancing on a Tuesday night with a fun and busy atmosphere. They also have dancers who offer lessons, so you have no excuse for not joining in.

Bondi Icebergs

With views looking over Bondi Beach, this restaurant is one for the itinerary. You may recognise the well-known landmark, Iceberg Pools, which is a saltwater pool next to Bondi Beach, from popular Instagram pages. You can also start your Bondi to Coogee costal walk from here.

National Parks

Sydney has some of the most amazing national parks where you can enjoy bushwalking and camping, island picnics and magnificent views, Aboriginal rock art and colonial heritage, and see kangaroos, wallabies and colourful birds. Australia’s oldest national park is in Sydney’s south.

Botanic Gardens

The Royal Botanic Gardens is known to be one of the world’s great natural harbours. The area provides the perfect place to get snapshots of Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Manly Beach

A great hotspot for surfing. The beach also has a selection of bars and eateries with a nice chilled vibe if you’re looking to avoid the hectic areas of Sydney.

Watsons Bay Hotel

This is a great spot! Watsons Bay Hotel has some of the best views over the water into to the city, it’s great to visit for breakfast, lunch and in the evening for the sunset, they even have a DJ on a Saturday if you are looking for a party atmosphere.

Blue Mountains

This a couple of hours drive from the centre of Sydney but well worth the trip if you want to see incredible sights. The Blue Mountains have scenic walks and a glass-floored cable car suspended above a steep ground.

Hunter Valley

A great weekend break as it is situated a couple of hours away from the main city centre of Sydney. You can visit vineyards, restaurants and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere when you fancy escaping the hustle and bustle of city life.

Palm Beach

Where Home and Away is filmed! A great day trip if you’re a fan or know somebody who is.
