The Ultimate Travel Guide for Sydney, Australia: Everything Important You Need To Know

Australia has been on my bucketlist since forever, but it always seemed out of reach because it is literally so far. When we saw that there was a flight deal for half the normal airfare cost, we jumped on that opportunity immediately! We've been told how expensive Australia is, so we're extremely happy we were able to find this deal.

And, before we knew it, we were off!! When deciding which cities to visit, Sydney was a no-brainer. The largest city in Australia with an unlimited number of things to do and see (let alone eat)? Yes please!

I spent a lot of time researching what to do in Sydney, and was sad to say that I didn't have enough time to do everything here. It's a glorious place to visit with enough of the city life to explore as well as the 'beach town' vibe to experience. There is always something to do and I could've spent a whole week here! But I've put together a guide that highlights some of the important things that I believe would be helpful if you're planning a trip to Sydney. It includes a number of things I experienced personally and some things I wish I skipped. Enjoy!

Estimated Budget for a Vacation To Australia

As I am sure you have heard, the cost of visiting/living in Australia is high, as Australia is one of the most expensive countries in the world. Of course, people's expectations of how 'much' things cost is relative to the individual, but I thought it would be interesting to total up how much money was spent on my two week trip to Australia. I knew this trip was going to be expensive to begin with, but as an accountant, I would have loved to see an estimated figure haha. So here is that! This can also be used as an estimated budget for how much a couple would need to budget for a trip to Australia. :)

A couple things to note:
• I went for 2 weeks.
• I visited three cities.
• I got an amazing flight deal from my hometown in Toronto, Canada.
• I stayed in hotels - albeit not luxury hotels, but I didn't stay in Airbnbs or hostels.
• I opted for 3 organized day tours.
• I drink and eat a lot haha.
• I'm low key scared to total up how much we spent.

Penguin Paradise in Melbourne, Australia


You can see penguins in Australia! Did you know that?! I didn't until after I started planning my trip to Melbourne, Australia. The penguins that are native to Australia are called the Little Penguins. They can only be found in southern Australia or New Zealand. And yes, as their name gives it away, they are the smallest penguins in allllll the land and it is so easy to see them if you are visiting Melbourne! All you need is a sunset, a warm sweater, and patience (if you go in April like I did). I hope I'm able to convince you from this post that you MUST go see these Little Penguins when you go to Melbourne!
