Sydney, New South Wales, is a place filled with rich history and cultural experiences. There is so much to do and explore when living at Be. Accommodation, the top student housing Sydney can offer. When you find yourself with free time from study why not gather a group of friends together and visit these amazing sites.
Sydney Opera House
When living in Sydney, it is a must to visit the city’s most recognisable landmark. The Sydney Opera House offers a range of experiences including ballet productions, opera, classical music concerts, theatre productions and so much more. You can even take a tour around the magnificent infrastructure and stop at the Opera Bar for some food and drink while taking in the finest view of the Sydney Harbour.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
You can’t visit Sydney without visiting the spectacular Sydney Harbour Bridge. The bridge opened on the 19th of March 1932 and is still standing strong today. You can view the bridge from afar from Circular Quay, hop on a ferry around the Sydney Harbour or even take a walk across the bridge. For the ultimate Harbour Bridge experience, the BridgeClimb allows you to safely climb and summit the bridge with a guide, offering you the best view of Sydney.
Art Gallery of New South Wales
The Art Gallery of New South Wales offers one of the most incredible cultural experiences in Sydney. Opened in 1871, its walls are filled with rich Australian history, including art pieces from Indigenous Australian cultures and international artists. Each summer the gallery also teams up with the Museum of Contemporary Art (which is also another must see museum in Sydney) to bring some of the most exciting exhibitions from around the globe to the city.
The Australian Museum opened in 1827, making it the oldest museum in Australia. Not only does it explore Australia’s history of science and nature, but it also houses over 20,000 Indigenous Australian pieces to give you a great understanding of the Indigenous history, community, and culture. The collection includes historical pieces including tools and weapons, as well as contemporary artworks from across Australia and the Torres Strait.
Royal Botanic Gardens
Established in 1816, Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden is one of the oldest institutions in Australia. Not only is it a beautiful scenic place to visit, but the gardens will also immerse you in rich Aboriginal culture, as you discover the history of Warrane (the Cadigal name for Circular Quay) and learn the ways the plants in the Garden are used by the Cadigal people.
