A girl’s weekend guide in Sydney, Australia

Nothing is farther from home than Australia, and braving a trip down is a good experience for women travelling alone. It has sun, sand, and a healthy serving of surfer bods to keep you entertained for hours on end.

If you decided on Sydney as your travel destination, then you’re in luck! I will list my ultimate to-do list for your weekend in Sydney.

Sun-kissed beach Bondi. Visiting Sydney means a chance to linger on one of the many sun-kissed beaches. Bondi should be your main destination since it’s one of the most famous beaches. There’s no place like Bondi on a summer day. Kick it up with the hip and trendy cafes that line up the side shops.

If you’re staying for the final moments of sundown, then there’s a better viewing deck than that of North Bondi Italian. The restaurant has a front row seat for sundowners. Who knows, you might just find a single guy who loves watching the sun go down as much as you do. *Wink*

Bondi to Bronte walk. You might hate waking up early, but heck, it’s a vacation. Get your dose of fresh sea air by walking from Bondi to Bronte. You’ll notice that the walkway is populated by serious runners. Also, the Sculpture by The Sea festival takes place along the route, showcasing sculpture with jaw-dropping vista.

Aussie Fashion with Gould Street. Who likes to look like a foreigner, right? To get wardrobe to match, visit Gould Street to pick up something good to wear. Look at Museum and Me or Moo for women’s wear. Aussies have a unique style of their own, stylish, relaxed, with a hint of the current trend. And since you’re picking up a distinctive style, picking up a few items here ensures a show-stopping moment on your return to your home country.

Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Of course, these two iconic landmarks are included. No Sydney trip would be complete without visiting either of these. Touristy, yes, but crucial. Getting to circular quay via one of Sydney’s quaint green or yellow ferries gives you the perfect sight see of these famous landmarks. Stop into the Opera Bar located beneath the Opera House for an exquisite glass of vino and a chance to enjoy the unparalleled view.

Museum of Contemporary Arts. Bring out your inner art paramour. The MCA exhibits Australia’s rich culture and history with exceptionally cool and creative exhibitions. Perfect for those who appreciate this type of “cool.”

Spa experience. After all the travelling you’ve made, spoil yourself with a trip to the Darling Spa, known as one of the best spa in Sydney. They offer beauty treatments and massages for the ultimate pleasure and retreat. The facility is also fully equipped health club and outdoor pools if you are looking for a workout. In addition, the closeness to restaurants, nightlife and casino as well as the new Event Centre, makes The Star the chief destination for business and entertainment experience.

Excited? Well, there’s more to Sydney than what’s listed here, so be sure to check out every new place you find (if you have the time and money, of course.) You go girl!
