Around 9000 different plants, as well as truly beautiful birds, can make your day absolutely incredible. Don’t miss this sensory adventure and the possibility to learn more about the flora, fauna as well as Aboriginal heritage by taking part in organized tours. Of course, there’s nothing to prevent you from finding contentment and peace in strolling the garden on your own.

Enjoy the best whiskey

There are many kinds of drinks to try in Sydney, but for a gentleman, nothing beats the perfect taste of whiskey. This is why signature whiskey tasting in Sydney is so popular, among other things. Not only do you get to taste the whiskey, but if you’re interested in a true whiskey experience, you can tour the distillery and even blend your own whiskey into whatever flavor suits your refined palate the best. This is truly an exquisite way to spend your free time in Sydney, even for a Sydneysider, let alone a visitor.

The panoramic views of the Sydney Tower Eye

There’s always a way to take in the whole city and feel like you’re on top of the world, even if you have just a couple of hours for yourself. Aside from the amazing Sydney Harbour Bridge, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the whole city of Sydney simply by visiting the Sydney Tower Eye. When you step onto the glass platform, you’ll be astonished to see the whole world beneath your feet as it expands in front of you. Taking part in activities such as these that allow you to contemplate life and immerse yourself in your own perception of the beautiful is truly a gentleman-like pastime.

Go for a coastal walk

You don’t have to go for a swim if that’s not something you’d enjoy at that very moment, but that doesn’t mean that you have to miss the beauty of the scenic beaches that decorate Sydney. For starters, taking a Coogee to Bondi Coastal Walk will definitely make your visit to Sydney more special and memorable. After all, this walk is said to be one of the most beautiful in the whole world, which is why every gentleman who appreciates the picturesque nature of it all will definitely enjoy it. Obviously, you can adjust the walk and its length to your own schedule.

Of course, you can always get more specific when it comes to your preferences, and do the research before coming to Sydney when it comes to the attractions you’d especially enjoy. Whatever the case, don’t hesitate to make the most out of your stay, no matter how short it may be.
