Blue Diamond Tours would like to take the opportunity to share with you some of our top recommendations. We hope will prove to be useful for locals and visitors alike.
Red Diamond Tours – Travel to rural Australia and experience just how a real outback sheep station works. A truly authentic look into many of the different aspects of outback farming in Australia. Suitable for the entire family.
Sculptures by the Sea – The world’s largest free-to-public outdoor sculpture exhibition takes place along a 2km stretch of beach from Bondi to Tamarara. This years event will take place between Thursday 23rd Oct and Sunday 9thNov.
Harbourside Fire-Works at the Darling Harbour – Spend an evening enjoying hearty steaks, succulent seafood or Asian fusion and then witness a firework show that is guaranteed to light up the night sky.
King Street Wharf – A choice of over top 15 restaurants at Darling Harbour. Choose from a range of tastes and flavours with a wide variety of Australian and international cuisines.
Meat and Wine Co – Recommended for its delicious ribs and steaks, Meat and Wine Co is conveniently located underneath the IMAX Theater at Darling Harbour. The place to go if you are looking for a chance to try some Kangaroo Meat, medium rare!!!
Airport Link – Ideal when traveling from Sydney Airport into the city, the Airport Link Train provides a couple of different options:
Domestic to the city $16.40
International to the city $17.20
As an alternative, a Taxi ride will cost between $50.00 and $70.00. Please note Airport tax and tolls are excluded.
Bridge Climb – A chance to see the beautiful harbour at several different times during the day or night. Our choice would be a twilight climb, giving you an opportunity to soak up the last rays of the day’s sun just prior to the moon taking over for the night-shift. Climbs start from just $218 per adult, childrens prices being slightly reduced. Please visit their website for more information along with full pricing structure.
The Sydney Opera House – Arguably the most iconic Australian location. Presenting a wide range of brilliant photo opportunities, the Sydney Opera House really shouldn’t be missed out on. For information on performances and tours please visit their website.
Australian Museum – Offering a genuine experience for those wishing to understand more about the history of indigenous Australians, plus a great chance to learn about some of the Australian native animals. More information can be found on their website and the accompanying link for the Aboriginal Tour.
Free Sydney CBD Shuttle: Route 555 – This free service runs on a loop in both directions between Central Station and Circular Quay, via George and Elizabeth Streets. Running every 10 minutes, the operational hours are as follows:
Weekdays between 9:30am and 3:30pm, with a late finish on Thursday evenings of 9pm.
Weekends between 9:30am and 6:00pm.
QVB (Queen Victoria Building) – Although designer clothing can be found here, our recommendation is down to the stunning architecture. If you are a fan of beautiful mosaic tiles along with stain glass windows then this should not be missed. Stop off for a light lunch or just grab a coffee at the bottom level while you take in the lovely architecture.
The Barrack Museum – An absolute must do for anyone who want to learn more about convicts and the early settlements in Australia. Serving as a crossroad for tens of thousands of people, Hyde Park Barracks played a central role in the worlds longest running convict transportation system.
