Sydney-Things to Do

Jump to last reply

OK, we know what "the guidebooks" say and I'm all for guidebooks, to a point but be nice to have some personal input.

We have 6 nights (arriving from Perth on the Indian-Pacific on the 30th) and staying in the Radisson Blu in the CBD.

We have a matinee opera performance one day and I have, perhaps foolishly, resisted the various venue offers for "great viewing points" such as the roof of one of the museums I think it is) for the fireworks. I gather that is going to be some sort of mob scene (to be expected) and we were warned by the hotel about street closures in case we had a vehicle.

We like museums; not much into so-called "modern" art. Churches and other houses of worship are of interest for the decoration. I am wondering if a trip out to Bondi Beach is worth the time. Am considering a train trip up into the Blue Mountains, too.

Something off beat would probably be appealing. I am assuming things get "back to normal" after the New Years Eve stuff.

Suggestions/thoughts are appreciated.
