With the rising costs of living and travelling always rising, going on a holiday or even a simple daytrip seems to cost a fortune these days. Luckily though, many cities do still feature things to see and do for free, and Sydney just happens to have its own share of fun without a price tag. Here are some of our favourites:
With over 50 beaches to choose from, locals and visitors alike have the luxury of a great coastline there for our enjoyment. While many beaches do charge for parking, public transport is available to most, and there's not much better than a hot summer day of fun in the sun and surf.
Open 365 days a year, the Royal Botanical Gardens are a must for anyone visiting Sydney. Located in the heart of the city, the gardens are now almost 200 years old, and feature an impressive range of plants from around Australia as well as overseas.
Located right next door to the Botanical Gardens is the Sydney Opera House, an icon of the city. You can explore the outside of the building at your own leisure, and at nearby Circular Quay you'll find street performers, as well as ferries heading to various points around the harbour. Nearby you can also visit The Rocks, a historic part of Sydney which features shops, restaurants, cafes and bars inside buildings from colonial times.
Equally as iconic as the Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is an impressive site indeed, especially considering it was built by hand in the 1920s and 30s. You can walk across the bridge between the north and south halves of Sydney, and see great views of the city around you, perfect for taking some holiday photos.
