Ferry trip to Watsons Bay

Cost: Adult: $5.88 Child: $2.94

(Or better yet, travel on Sunday for $2.60 transport all day)

Just 11km of Sydney’s CBD is Watsons Bay, a Harbourside suburb which boasts views across the harbour to Sydney’s Harbour Bridge. Travel back in time, to where the original inhabitants, the Gadigal people were known to fish and collect shellfish in the waters around what is now known as Watsons Bay.

Stroll around the bay to Camp Cove, where there once existed rock engravings along the cliff faces. Watsons Bay is one of Sydney’s top picks for a weekend stroll, a picnic in the park, mimosas at the infamous Watsons Bay Hotel or a relaxing park sun bake.


Visit Sydney’s art galleries

Cost: $0

Grab your walking shoes and take Sydney on foot this weekend,  to visit some of Sydney’s well known art galleries.

Check out the collections of Australian, European and Asian artworks displayed at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. 

Explore the crazy, bold and brilliant artworks that live inside of the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), immerse yourself in the curiosity that is the gallery shop or bring yourself into the sun at the rooftop cafe and sculpture terrace.

Get cultural and check out the four level wonderland that is the White Rabbit Gallery in Chippendale for contemporary Chinese art, and while you’re there be sure to try the tea room for handmade dumplings.


Bondi to Bronte coastal walk

Cost: $0

Grab your best pal, put on your active wear, and head to Bondi for the Bondi to Bronte coastal walk. On your walk you’ll come across stunning beaches and views, parks, ocean pools, trendy neighbourhoods, and picture perfect locations.
