It is no wonder why Sydney, the largest and most populous city in Australia, has been consistently ranked as one of the best cities in the world by several global surveys. From beautiful beaches, cultural events, an enviable range of attractions, restaurants and cafes, and a guarantee of 340 days of fine sunny weather, it simply has a lot to offer. People of all ages will definitely find something interesting in Sydney, which makes it an ideal vacation spot for the whole family all-year round.
A rich wildlife experience. Mention Australia to anyone and the first thing that comes to mind is kangaroos. But it’s not just kangaroos that sets the Land Down Under apart when it comes to wildlife. Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, Featherdale Wildlife Park, and WILD LIFE Sydney are great avenues to encounter, and interact with, animals, including those that are endemic to Australia such as koalas, wallabies and quokkas. It promises a wildlife adventure that would be truly remarkable and unforgettable, as well as educational, for kids and adults alike. Taronga Zoo, in particular, is an ideal family destination. The open-range zoo houses 4,000 animals, including wombats, Tasmanian devils and echidnas. The young and young-at-heart can also meet koalas, and feed giraffes in their enclosures. Families can also head to SEA LIFE Sydney, which features the world’s largest collection of all-Australian aquatic life, housing more than 7,000 marine species. Meanwhile, at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary, children can learn how they can help rescue and protect underwater creatures with the facility’s conservation education efforts. They can also experience the Shark Dive Xtreme, for a first-hand experience when it comes to swimming with grey nurse sharks, turtles, and stingrays. (more…)
