Making the most of Sydney with Groupon

As one of the world’s most vibrant and lively cities, Sydney always has something new and exciting to offer, even to its locals.

If you take advantage of Groupon’s excellent deals on activities throughout Sydney, you could be:

With so much to see and do you might be feeling a bit lost on how to start spending your time, but no need to fear, we’re here to point you in the right direction.

If you’re looking to get in some family time, then Sydney is the perfect city for you with a huge variety of ways to keep kids entertained. The city’s beaches offer a range of different exciting water sports to try out, which could include kayaking across Sydney Bay itself, giving the family a view they won’t forget anytime soon.

If you’re looking to squeeze in some educational or cultural value alongside the fun, then you could try taking a trip to one of the city’s many museums or visit the stunning plant life in the Royal Botanic Garden. And if walking around all day starts to get a little tiring, a little stop off at Darling Harbour is great for families. It has lots of locally owned cafes and bistros, plus children’s playgrounds to keep the kids occupied while you recuperate.

As Australia’s biggest city it’s no surprise that there are more than a few places worth giving a visit. While the areas around the bay are home to the most popular hotspots, it is also well worth heading off the beaten track a little and into other areas of the city. Just an hour’s drive away from Sydney is Royal National Park which is an absolute must-see, not only for its stunning scenery but also to enjoy the great trekking, swimming or biking throughout.

Once you’ve built up a bit of an appetite after a day gallivanting through the city, you can look forward to enjoying a meal at one of Sydney’s stellar local eateries. If freshly caught fish is your thing then eating by the sea is a good place to start, with guaranteed fresh seafood straight from the water to your plate. You’ll also be supporting local business to boot. Walsh Bay is another great spot for excellent choices in food and drink if you’d like something central but a little quieter.

Making your way around Sydney couldn’t be easier with the city’s excellent public transport links. With a free travelcard you’ll be able to buy tickets and hop on and off the bus or train with no hassle. To make things even easier, we recommend keeping your smartcard topped up at all times, so you’re never stuck in a pinch. If you’d like to learn a bit more about the city then it’s always recommended that you try a bus tour, or even join a walking tour of the main sights.

Groupon has great new deals every day in Sydney and with so much to do and see you’ll never be stuck for another way to save with Groupon.
