1. It’s hard to be bored here.
Sydney has no shortage of activities to keep you busy. From hiking and biking to kayaking and sailing, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Even if you don’t surf, visiting Bondi Beach is a must when you travel to Sydney. This renowned beach is one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations.

4. That skyline.
With the city’s iconic Opera House looming over the Harbour, it’s easy to see why so many fall in love with Sydney’s skyline. For jaw-dropping panoramic views, the adventurous can climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Prefer something a little more laidback? You can also enjoy the scenery from a less heart-pounding altitude by taking one of the regular ferry rides that tour the Harbour.
5. It’s innovative…
Recently, the city has made significant efforts to address climate change issues. Sydney has focused on developing more sustainable buildings, planting dense trees to create an “urban forest” and lower city temperatures, and expanding public transport.
6. … and one of the safest cities in the world.
International education is all about getting outside of your comfort zone. That being said, you still want to be safe, of course. Great news – Sydney is consistently named as one of the top 5 safest cities in the world. If you want to travel somewhere that’s secure and adventurous, Sydney is one of the best options out there.
7. There are plenty of opportunities to see wildlife.
One of the biggest perks of visiting Australia is the chance to see its unique and fascinating wildlife. While Sydney is a metropolitan area, it’s surrounded by National Parks that are home to a variety of animals. In the nearby Blue Mountains, you can spot kangaroos, wallabies, and cockatoos. You’ll also have a marine paradise at your doorstep. If spotting dolphins is on your bucket-list, be sure to check out Port Stephens. About 2.5 hours outside of Sydney, this area is a great place to see wild dolphins.
