Top Things To Do In Sydney

Sydney is jam packed with exciting activities to suit the tastes of every visitor. Whether you’re in town with your partner and looking for some city romance or you’re on your own and looking for adventure in the sun, Sydney can deliver.


Australian restaurants range from Michelin-star establishments to quirky bistros and fun retro diners. Sydney offers enormous choice, whether it’s for a fun dinner out with friends or a formal first date.

Quay, one of the best restaurants in Australia, has views to the Sydney harbour, the bridge and the Opera House. Sydney also offers a wide range of fun places for a lunch date such as Cafe DOV, which sources all its food from local producers for a fresh, organic feel, or Cafe Morso, which has views of the harbour and an option of an excellent three-course meal or a more casual canape dinner.


If you’re looking for ways to enjoy Sydney with your partner, you can’t go wrong with a romantic stroll along the harbour. But there’s certainly no shortage of other options. Whatever you’re both into, they’ll be something suitable.

If a shared love of Thai food led to romance after meeting on the eHarmony Asian dating website, you could do worse than head to Chat Thai, a restaurant where you’re guaranteed a flavour explosion in chic surrounds.

Perhaps you met your partner travelling – there are lots of outdoor dating activities in and around Sydney. Why not try an adventure safari? Anything from a few hours of exploring to a full three-day safari journey from Melbourne to Sydney is a great way to get to know each other better while discovering new landscapes.

Australians are well known for their love of nature and the great outdoors. The good weather also means it’s a great place to get involved in sports, the most popular of which in Sydney is rugby. Going to see a match can be interesting even for people without a lot of prior knowledge of the sport. In the summer cricket is the most popular sport in Australia, and it forms a large part of the culture, much as it does in the UK.

For the more adventurous types, a holiday in Australia offers the opportunity to enjoy skydiving, white water rafting experience, kayaking, hang gliding, or even hot-air ballooning.
