Best Day Trips from Sydney

by in Australia

Sydney has so much going on within the city that visitors often forget to look at the day trips to see more of the region. Here are some of the best day trips that you can do from Sydney.

Discover the Blue Mountains

Three Sister Blue Mountains Australia

One of the most spectacular days out from Sydney is to the Blue Mountains which is a World Heritage Site. All the top mountain bikes of 2017 are having their new catalog photo shoot on that mountain. To see more of this natural wonder, think about hiring a campervan in Sydney via Drive.com.au to make the most of your time in the area.

Visitors can see the Three Sisters Rock Formation at Katoomba and also gaze at the views across the Megalong Valley. At the Waradah Aboriginal centre there are opportunities to learn about this fascinating culture as well as meet kangaroos and other indigenous species.

Go Wine Tasting in the Hunter Valley

Australian wines are renowned and some of the best are produced within a short distance of Sydney. The Hunter Valley is a wonderful day trip with visits to vineyards and the opportunity to learn about wine production here. This area has some of the oldest wine producing areas in Australia. Tasting a glass or two is all part of the experience and there are also opportunities to buy. Some day trips also combine the tour with a visit to the brewery to see local beer production.

Visit Nelson Bay

A day visit to the waterfront towns along the coast is a wonderful way to see more of the region. Nelson Bay is especially popular with a lovely beach front and shops. There are some great restaurants for lunch here too. Further along the coast at Port Stephens Bay, one of the best ways to see the area is to ride the local ferry. Both towns have boats that take visitors whale watching and dolphin spotting which is a wonderful way to spend a day here.

Spend a Day on Manly Beach

Manly Beach Sydney Australia

One of the best known beaches in Australia, Manly Beach is a popular destination for people looking to escape the city for a day. There is surfing here with huge breakers for the experienced and smaller sandbanks for the beginner. Look out for the taster lessons and enjoy the ocean. Manly has Oceanworld here which is perfect for families and has a lot of other sporting activities besides the surf. Check out kayaking, scuba diving and tennis to name just a few.

There are many destinations within easy reach of Sydney that are perfect for a day trip. Why not check one or two out and get to see more of Australia.
