One of the most popular touristic innovations seems to be the foodie tour. After all, who doesn’t love eating? New and exciting flavors from around the world have been more and more available everywhere, but there’s nothing better than trying them out in their authentic state, straight at the source.

The amazing Sydney Harbor Bridge has been the touristic attraction ever since 1932. It has been visited by many celebrities that dared to go bridge climbing. These include Oprah, Mat Damon, Katy Perry, Emma Thompson and many more. It is also a place where many romantic dates are happening throughout the year. It is famous for being the gathering place of romantic couples. However, there are other things that you can do around Sydney for your date. Read more

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
My sister, cousin and I took a last spin of Sydney today before we head to Darwin tomorrow. It was nice getting a break from the parents and doing our own thing for the first time all week. They happily went to the Botanical Gardens (yawn) while we pranced around Sydney and ate ice cream… lots of ice cream. We happened upon an amazing and unique shop called N2 Gelato Extreme that makes ice cream on the spot by freezing it with nitrogen.. we may have stopped there once or twice throughout the day. It looks more like a chemistry lab than ice cream shop but the results were fantastic! It’s located within Chinatown.

Sydney’s Featherdale Wildlife Park

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Today was probably one of the best parts of Sydney: visiting an Australian animal petting zoo! Featherdale Wildlife Park is a small sanctuary when people can get up close and personal with koalas, kangaroos, wallabies (smaller-looking kangaroos), and several other Australian native animals. We had so much fun petting and feeding the wallabies that were roaming all over the park, trying to get the best selfie we could. The Park seems to be overlooked as my relatives hadn’t heard of it before. It has something for all ages and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Sydney as I wouldn’t have had the same experiences interacting with the animals in the zoo.
Probably the oldest-looking koala I’ve ever seen

Hungry mungry!
Got something on your face there…
Doesn’t seem too thrilled about the selfie…
A bunch of lazy bones!
Sorry, my camera isn’t food!

There were plenty of other animals, too, but none were as much fun as those wallabies!

Fairy penguins
A grumpy looking kookaburra
A quokka, possibly the cutest and happiest looking animal ever!
How you doin?
A BABY KOALA WITH ITS MOM! My life is complete.

As I said, I definitely recommend checking out Featherdale! It’s a quiet and uncrowded space with a lot to offer.

Ocean Views Around Sydney

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
We took a hike to Barrenjoey Lighthouse near Sydney today. As you can see it was a gorgeous day while we huffed and puffed our way up a very steep hill. However, as always, the ocean view was worth it as well as the whales we saw surfacing in the far distance!

Later we drove to North Head to get some twilight views of the city.

Beautiful sights, beautiful day!

Sydney’s Taronga Zoo

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Today we visited one of the best zoos I’ve ever seen, Sydney’s Taronga Zoo. It’s located outside of the city but a simple ferry ride from the harbor took us right to the entrance. It has the largest variety of animals I’ve ever seen and it was so expansive we didn’t even have time to finish walking through the entire area (it is oddly organized, though – not a single path to follow but many). It was a beautiful day, but we were a little nervous that it was too cold for the animals as the previous day we’d heard that many of the animals had been kept inside. We were happy to find that all the animals were out and about, ready to pose for our pictures!

Sydney Opera House Tour and Harbour Bridge

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Today we toured the gorgeous Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. I was so excited about seeing the heart of city since it’s one of the most famous buildings in the world. In fact, our tour guide said that more people know about the Opera House than about the city itself, which is kind of hard to imagine. It was a beautiful, cool, cloudless day and simply perfect for a city walk.

Later in the afternoon we went to the aquarium near Darling Harbour. It’s a small aquarium but certainly had amazing sea life.
