If you missed Part 1, you should check it out now! Here are even more amazing places to visit in Sydney (plus one that isn’t so amazing).
Art Gallery of NSW
This gallery, founded in 1871, is located in The Domain and is one of the largest in Australia. Australian art from the settlement to the contemporary period is on display, as well as a range of well-known European and Asian pieces. A must for any art buff, the gallery holds up to forty exhibitions annually, featuring works by artists like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Exhibitions can be extremely popular, so make sure to check the website before visiting if you have your heart set on one in particular. It is free to visit the general exhibition space.
It’s beautiful inside! And they have different themes all the time.
This is like the best boutique hotel in Sydney people!
The QT hotel is a hip and eclectic boutique hotel in downtown Sydney, famous for its luxury en-suite bathrooms and imaginative art deco style. Only a stone’s throw away from the State Theatre and Hyde Park, this trendy hotel is perfectly positioned for a city break on Australia’s East Coast. Check my Instagram for more photos 😉
If you’re a thrill seeker, head to this amusement park located at Milsons Point, under the northern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The rides on offer include the Big Dipper, Dodgem City, Spider, Wild Mouse, and Moon Ranger. But be aware some of the rides are a bit outdated and the park is relatively small. Not too much of stuff inside though. Cool gate photo, but thats about it.
Sydney Tower Eye
This observation tower is the second tallest in the Southern Hemisphere and is Sydney’s tallest structure. At 309m the structure offers unparalleled views over the city. This 360-degree panorama includes the distant Blue Mountains. Combine this with the 4D cinema experience and the Observation Deck and it’s an unforgettable visit for any tourist.

The tower overlooks the city
This park is the oldest public parkland in Australia and offers a fantastic day out for any visitor to Sydney. Located on the eastern side of the Sydney city centre, the 16 acres of fig-lined avenues and lush green grass are the perfect escape from the bustling streets of the metropolis. Bring a picnic, you’ll be sure to stay for a while!
Conservatorium of Music
Only drove pass this building, didn’t have time to visit this place, but I thought its worth to bring up to your attention, because I will for sure go back next time! And here is some wikipedia knowledge below haha
This music school is one of the oldest and most prestigious in Australia. The front western view is a classic example of gothic architecture, with its dramatic turrets. The building was originally designed to be a stable block, before being transformed into a musical school in 1915. Architecture enthusiasts will be enthralled by the eye-catching façade and it is well worth a visit.
Here are few more shots I took when I was there.
