If you are visiting with the family in tow then you definitely need to make a trip to Luna Park.

If you would like to see and appreciate some fantastic architecture then Sydney’s Opera House will fit the bill. Constructed in 1973, it boasts seven different performance venues. Not only that, there are also shops, bars and restaurants as well. And if that isn’t enough, from the Opera House you will also have a spectacular view of the world renowned Sydney Harbor.
Next up is the largest coral reef on the planet, Sydney’s Great Barrier Reef. This natural phenomenon has been untouched by nature and you can either choose to take a helicopter ride and enjoy it from above, or if you are really adventurous you can see it by way of deep sea diving.
