    Default Things to do in Sydney

    Headed to Sydney from Friday to Monday. Never been before so what are some fun things to do. Staying in the cbd for 2 nights so will be around the city for a few days.

    Also any great hotel recommendations would be awesome coz I am having trouble deciding where to stay.

    Thanks.

    Definitely the Shangrila or 4 seasons
    they are both near circular Quay and you can walk everywhere
    My fav things to do in the city: ( which all seem to revolve around food!)

    Get a ferry from circular Quay to Manly - grab a pizza from Hugo's on the wharf ( Pete Evans restaurant) you see all the Harbour and sites and it's cheaper than a harbour cruise!

    Go to The Establishment hotel for cocktails ( and dinner upstairs at Est but it's $$$)

    Yum cha on the weekend at Mr Wongs

    Shopping at Westfield Centrepoint and Pitt st mall shops

    Drinks at sunset at the Opera Bar ( at the bottom of the Opera House)

    Walk down to The Rocks markets ( Saturdays and Sunday) there are plenty of cute pubs and places to eat there

    Definitely do Opera Bar! We went for Lunch but are planning to go for dinner and drinks without the kids one night. Fabulous atmosphere, yummy food and an amazing view!

    Taronga zoo is great and Darling Harbour I think has fireworks Saturday nights (?) it used to anyway.

    Friday afternoon I'd definitely head to the Opera Bar area. As well as the Opera Bar itself there are quite a few places to get scrummy food and drinks and the location is stunning. If it is rainy you can sit undercover - but get there earlyish as it does fill up!

    Saturday I was going to suggest a wander around Surry Hills (a short walk from the city) and then catching a bus to Bondi, but it might be worth investigating one of the red explorer buses - they take you past a lot of the major attractions (Opera House, Rocks, Darling Harbour, Bondi and (I think) across the Bridge to Luna Park) and you can hop on an off as much as you want in 24 hours.

    I'd choose Luna park over the Aquarium or Madame Tussards, but that's just me. Luna Park is another spectacular location - but aside from the rides it doesn't have much else. I *think* unless you want to go on the rides it is free to wander around. It is also a good jumping off point for wandering around under the Bridge and looking back across to the Opera House and city.

    Something else that is fun to do is a ferry ride to Manly or Watson's Bay. Both gorgeous places and you can have fish and chips on the beach or a pub meal or something fancier.

    Drinks/dinner at night in the orbit bar in Australia Square -- it spins around, so while you're sipping your cocktail you get a 360 view of the Sydney skyline at night, it's awesome
