There’s nothing quite like studying in the beautiful city of Sydney. Home to so many iconic attractions such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House and beautiful beaches like Bondi and Manly, it’s hard to know where to start.

Here are some activities for getting to know Sydney:


1. Walk from Bondi to Coogee

One of the most popular walks around Sydney is the Bondi to Coogee Walk, which starts from the popular Icebergs Swimming Pool at the south side of Bondi Beach and weaves along the coast until you reach the cafe-filled beach of Coogee.

4. Visit Botany Bay

Botany Bay is situated around 15km South of Sydney CBD and has become a famous tourist destination, as it was the place Captain Cook first landed back in 1770. There are plenty of things to do in Botany Bay, including walking one of the many trails or having a barbeque/picnic by the foreshore.
