What I Wish Everyone Knew About Sydney, Australia



To most, Sydney is the crown jewel of Australia. I mean, why should it not be? Afterall, it heralds some of the world’s beautiful beaches, 5-star restaurants, and has given some of the most splendid unforgettable moments to a good share of the majority. Well, there’s still a portion who had an entirely different story to tell about the heart of Australia, but when summed up, the awesome stories pretty much outweighed the bad ones.

Whereas Sydney has received its reasonable share of praises and criticisms, I still feel people in general should get a hint before making their bucket must-do list. Here’s what I wish everyone knew about Sydney Australia.

The Weather is Really Good -But not Always

Sydney’s weather is by far splendid. Their winter is only mild with the ‘cold snap’ barely lasting for only a few weeks. Others hardly feel it at all. Generally, Sydney’s weather is more warm and sunny the better part of the year. Most people love it, but…

Other people may term it weird, and here’s why. There’s rain in summer, and it's mostly humid most of the time. The obvious downside is that you will need to invest in a good deodorant as it means you will be sweaty most of the time. But soon as you get past the quirks, you will quickly embrace that overall, Sydney’s weather is magical!

It’s as Beautiful as its Pictures

Seeing Sydney from it’s pictures is breathtaking. Perhaps almost too good to be true. However, it is not just filters and viewing it in real life will quickly confirm this fact. For instance, Bondi beach is as picturesque as it gets and never disappoints. Similar to the surrounding beaches.

The city itself is equally vibrant -and the nightlife almost magical. There’s plenty of spots to hit and have the best fun such as casino australia. There’s also more than a dozen activities to indulge in that will leave you and your loved ones the best memories. Keep away from the free public spaces on weekends as it can get awfully crowded though!

Sydney can Get Ridiculously Expensive!

To get the most and best of Sydney, make sure you are loaded with cash -like literally. It’s no surprise that the cost of living in Sydney has been compared to that of Paris, London, or New York. Even when the Aussie dollar may be considered weaker than most of its western counterparts, there’s no missing the expense factors.

If you’re on a tight budget, consider trying the cheaper option hotels, avoid expensive activities, and steer away from luxury. There’s still tons of fun Sydney offers even on a tight budget. The trick is to do research and plan your budget carefully.

Conclusion

Sydney is ideal for anyone looking to have a great time, both to Australian visitors and locals alike. With the right planning of areas to explore and budget, be sure there’s something for everyone!
