Sydney Observatory

Having been used as important shipping, meteorology, navigation, and astronomy center for more than two centuries, the Sydney Observatory is a place you have to visit if you’re interested in the secrets of outer space.

This place is situated next to Sydney Harbor Bridge, so you don't have to travel for miles outside of the city just to get here. What you will get when you arrive, here, though, would be a place where you can gaze at the stars and planets and see magnified every celestial body you've been reading about in school textbooks and scientific papers.

Indeed, for a person interested in learning the secrets of outer space, visiting this place is an absolute must, but even folks who aren’t that big on viewing the planets and other wonders in the skies can have a great time here.

Sydney’s Chinatown

Whether you’re Chinese yourself and you’d like to get in touch with the local Chinese community, or you simply want to grab something to eat at some of the famous restaurants in this area, or you want to do some shopping and meet the locals, too, along the way – visiting Sydney’s Chinatown can be a great way to spend an evening in Sydney.

Other than offering a myriad of small shops, restaurants, and specialized spice and medicinal herb stands, Chinatown is also home to some of the most exciting events that are held here all year round. The important thing to remember would be to follow the Chinese calendar to see when these are taking place.

Night Ferry Trip

As we already mentioned, one of the most popular and most exciting nightlife tours you can take in Sydney would certainly be the night ferry trip.

Not only will you get to relax and enjoy a refreshing drink while aboard one of these slow-moving vessels, but you will also experience the benefit of seeing much of the wonders of this city from a unique perspective.

Also, since many important landmarks and buildings are built to be close to the bay, you’ll get to see quite a few of them by going on a single ferry trip.

Live Music

If you're interested in having a good time on the town, listening to some bands perform live, and having something to drink with your friends, then Sydney's club scene won't disappoint.

Clubs and performance venues such as the Vanguard and Low 302 can be excellent choices for having a blast in this city. Whether you’re with your friends or you’re going on your own, you can have a great time you will never forget.

All in all, visiting Sydney will certainly be one of the most exciting holidays you’ve ever been on.
