With the world slowly reopening, and with the chance to travel back on the cards, is now the perfect time to visit Australia? We’d suggest so.

Here’s a look at 10 things to do in Sydney:
1) Take the chance to explore The Rocks
You may already know, but The Rocks are the oldest part of Sydney. It has sandstone churches, along with colonial buildings, and you’ll even find Australia’s oldest pubs. This is the place where the British first entered the country all the way back in 1788. Some of the history was lost as new buildings were developed in the 1970s, but it is still well worth a visit.
2) Hit the beach and soak up the sun
In terms of things to do in Sydney, visiting the world-class beaches is a must. The beach culture in Sydney is something else with surfing, swimming, and the chance to enjoy a drink and great food. Whether you choose Palm Beach, Bondi, or any other, a great time is guaranteed.
