Sydney is undeniably the most renowned, biggest, and oldest of all Australian cities. With its numerous world-class attractions, the city combines the comfort of a great climate, word-class study institutes, and exciting adventures that make it a favorite city to visit and study.
Visit Sydney Opera House to take memorable pictures and admire the beauty of the fascinating structure. The Opera House is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most famous of Australia's monuments. Then go-ahead to explore the popular Habour Bridge or "Coathanger," also known as the largest steel arch bridge in the world. If you are daring enough, you may enjoy climbing to the summit of the bridge to enjoy panoramic views of the city.
Lovers of nature shouldn't miss a visit to the Sydney Aquarium, the Royal Botanic Garden, and the Taronga Zoo. The aquarium is home to the world's biggest collection of Australian marine creatures, while the Taronga is where you can see several animals and even get close enough to stroke a Koala. The gardens, on the other hand, are very close to the Sydney Opera House and have about 30 hectares of land dedicated to stunning themed gardens, orchids, palm groves, and trees.
Don't miss the food scene in Sydney. Try getting some mouth-watering delicacies at Tramshed or the Blackstar Pastry before the end of your study for some of the best Sydney food treats.
You stand a better chance of enjoying the best of Sydney when you choose to stay behind and teach in the city after your CELTA.
