My Favorite Free Things To Do In Sydney

Who doesn't love free things? some people might say Sydney is a freaking expensive city, well I can't argue with that, but there are still so many things you can do in this city for free. Here are some of my favorite free things to do around Sydney.

Take a walk on Sydney Harbour Bridge
There are 5 ways to get through Sydney Harbour bridge, by bus, by train, join climb harbour bridge tour and by bike or walk if you want to travel it for free. Plus you can see Opera house from the bridge and it will give you a different angle of the building. Some people even take this route as their jogging track, how interesting.

afternoon stroll with my fellow travel bloggers :)

Stroll around Darling Harbour
At the beginning I am not a fan of Darling Harbour as I never find this place exciting, but one day on my way back to apartment I saw bridge in darling harbour move to let some yatch and huge ship passing through *I wasn't sure what kind of ship at that moment* but finally I realized this place is the nearest place in the city to see the moving bridge. You could find another one in the Spit, Mosman.

Burn the energy along Bondi to Coogee Walk
Well, if you think 6kms walk with beautiful scenery and fresh air is a great idea for the weekend then you should try this route. From Bondi beach to Coogee beach, you will pass Tamarama beach, Bronte beach and Clovelly beach. If it's not enough, continue your walk to Maroubra beach.

Become an art enthusiast in Art Gallery NSW
I like to go to museum especially if it is for free and it has a magnificent building architecture. There are some museums in Sydney that you can visit for free, and Art Galery NSW is my favorite. Art Gallery NSW located in the Domain near Royal Botanical Garden.


Go to Hyde Park for an escape in the middle of the city
There are so many things you can do in Hyde park, from lunch break picnic, dinner on the park with a friend, yoga with team until Saturdate near Archibald fountain. 



Picnic in Royal Botanical Garden
It located near Opera House, however the first time I came to this place I didn't choose the gate near the Opera House but I came from another gate near Wollomooloo bay. It has so many tree and herbs collection inside the garden. For detail information on what blooming on the season you can check their website. Beside the garden, my favorite area is Mrs. Macquarie's chair which is the best spot to catch sunset in Sydney with Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera house as the background.

Go to T2 tea shop around city and take a sip of great tea
This is not a sponsored post, but trust me if you a tea enthusiast just like me you will love to come inside or even you are not a big fan of tea you will enjoy to stroll around the shop and try their tea creations for free. They brew different hot and cold tea recipes and will share it to customers who visit their store, everyday.
