Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Also a great way to explore Sydney from a different angle, stand-up paddle boarding is an amazing watersport in Sydney. It does not matter whether you have done it before or you are a beginner, you can rent a paddle board. The best place to do this is at Sydney Harbor.


This is a sport that will get you to see the spectacular Sydney from a different perspective. Parasailing gives you an aerial view of the famous Sydney Harbor, the city and its surrounding. This is of course if you are not afraid of heights. Do not worry if you are not a pilot since you can book a tandem flight. Manly Wharf is a great point to start.

Swim and Sunbathe

The fun of going to a beach is swimming, sunbathing and building sand castles. Walking is also great. When you are in Sydney and you want to do this, you should head to the famous Bondi Beach that has a breathtaking coastline. This is actually one of the most iconic beaches in the country that is home to one of the oldest swimming clubs in the country. In the Bondi baths, you get a rare chance to swim laps with icebergs.

It’s surprising that you can see surfers at the beach at any time including at dawn. Bondi beach is a popular surfing spot and this can be attested by the fact that one of the world’s oldest surf lifesaving clubs is located here.
