Some of the Highlights of our Business Trip in Sydney

Got up-close-and-personal with some of Australia’s native animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park

Visiting Australia is incomplete without having a personal encounter with a Koala and hand feed Kangaroos and Wallabies. So we wouldn’t miss our chance to visit Featherdale Wildlife Park which is a home to one of Australia’s most comprehensive collections of native wildlife.

It was such an amazing experience for us to get up-close-and-personal with some of our Australia’s native animals. What’s more exciting is we had the opportunity to hold and feed Kangaroos, Koalas, and Wallabies and took a lot of selfies with them.

Beach Bumming & Coastal Walking

If you’re a beach lover and it’s your first time to visit Sydney, Manly Beach should be included on your bucket list. It’s one of Sydney’s most popular northern beaches and it’s good for people who like to have a picnic, surf, swim or just go for a walk.

Manly Beach

What I love going to Manly Beach was taking a 30-minute ferry ride which gave us some stunning views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

Tips from Journey Insider:

  • Ferries leave every half hour from Circular Quay and adult tickets cost around $15 return (Mon-Sat)
  • It’s best to go to Manly Beach on Sunday so you’ll get super-cheap, all-day tickets ($2.50 per person) when you use your Opal card.

Don’t Miss:

  • A stroll along Manly Corso, the pedestrian mall linking Manly Wharf with Manly Beach.
  • The pretty coastal walk from Manly to Shelly Beach.
  • Fish and chips on Manly Beach

How to Get to Manly Beach from Central Station:

  • Catch a train to Circulay Quay from Central Station
  • Then take a ferry to Manly Beach

Shelly Beach

Bondi Beach

No trip to Sydney is complete without a trip to the iconic Bondi Beach. It’s Australia’s most famous beach and Sydney’s iconic spot for surfing. But aside from surfing, swimming, and soaking up the sun, you can also do the “Bondi to Congee Walk” which is amongst my favourite around Sydney. On the way, we saw the famous Bondi Icebergs Pool and also discovered some stunning rock formations.

How to Get to Bondi Beach from Central Station:

  • Catch a train to Bondi Junction from Central Station (Note: The stations in order are Central, Town Hall, Martin Place, Kings Cross, Edgecliff and Bondi Junction)
  • Then take a bus (380, 381, 382 or 333) for a 15-minute ride to Bondi Beach
