Cruise into Sydney, Australia, and experience these five must-see attractions.

Sydney is full of amazing things to see and do — and you won’t want to miss a moment. To cruise Australia in style, you’ll want to add these places to your must-see list.

1. The Rocks

With its old cobblestone roads and historic merchant homes made from the sandstone that gives the area its name, The Rocks is a city center peppered with art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. Take a stroll around this famous district and connect with Sydney’s rich history.

To get there: The Rocks is an easy walk from Circular Quay (the busiest part of the harbor, from where you can take buses, trains, and ferries). Walk along George Street toward the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and you’ll be there in no time.

2. The Sydney Opera House

When you think of Australia, the iconic Sydney Opera House immediately comes to mind. As one of the busiest performing arts centers in the world, this facility houses multiple performing arts venues that host more than 1,500 performances each year. The structure, designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon, was completed in 1973, and quickly became one of the most recognizable buildings of the twentieth century.

To get there: The Sydney Opera House is a seven-minute walk from Circular Quay. A complimentary shuttle service also runs from Circular Quay to the opera house.

3. Paddington and Glebe Markets

Every Saturday, the Paddington and Glebe Markets both open their stalls, delighting trendsetters, bargain hunters, and art lovers alike. Glebe is known for being the top vintage market in Sydney, while Paddington specializes in supporting local craftsmen and designers. A trip to these markets will spark your creativity for months to come.

To get there: Glebe Market is located at the corner of Derby Place and Glebe Pt. Road, on the grounds of Glebe Public School. Paddington Markets is located at 395 Oxford Street, Paddington, near Centennial Park.

4. The Taronga Zoo

Beloved by locals and visitors alike, the Taronga Zoo offers a behind-the-scenes tour that allows guests to handle animals and take photos near sleeping koalas. Guests are also offered self-guided maps and access to the zoo’s extensive educational information.

To get there: Taronga Zoo is a short 12 minutes by ferry from Circular Quay. While on the ferry, you’ll enjoy beautiful city vistas, including a stellar view of the Sydney Opera House.

5. Manly Beach

Renowned for its surfing, Manly Beach has drawn Sydneysiders for its swimming and surfing since the late 19th century. It was named by Captain Arthur Phillip, who wanted to capture the key characteristics he saw in the local indigenous populations: confidence and manliness. The beach has many public amenities, including a playground, showers, and public facilities.

To get there: Take a 30-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay to Manly.

On an Australia cruise, you can carve your own path through Sydney. Take in these and other uniquely Australian sites for an experience you’ll remember for years to come.
