How to spend 48 hours in Sydney

Welcome to the Emerald City! Perfect for a weekend getaway, Sydney will keep you on your toes from dawn to dusk. Get ready to bookmark our picks for a memory making 48 hours in Sydney.
 
Forget taxi lines at the airport after you collect your bags from the carousel. The easiest and most fuss-free way to get to Sydney CBD is the train. Leaving from the Airport station approximately every 10 mins, it stops at all the city stations you’ll need if you’re staying in the CBD. Grab an Opal card - you’ll want this for trips during your stay, too. Within 15 minutes you’ll be in the city and ready to start your adventure!

Shop
If shopping ‘til you drop is at the top of your to-do list, you’ll be in retail heaven in Sydney’s CBD. Browse (and buy) to your heart’s content in Pitt Street Mall, QVB, The Strand Arcade and The Galeries. For a more boutique experience, head towards Surry Hills’ Crown Street for vintage finds and Paddington’s famous Oxford Street for an array of local designers’ boutiques, eclectic homewares and more.

Eat
From $1 freshly made custard puffs from the hole-in-the-wall Emperor’s Puffs in Chinatown (yes, there’s a reason there’s a line waiting for these delicious bites), fish and chips at Watson’s Bay to iconic Australian fine dining at Quay – Sydney is home to culinary experiences sure to delight the most eager foodie. The Saturday Carriageworks Farmer’s Market make for a perfect breakfast stop while stocking up on epicurean gifts to take home.

Explore
Do up your laces and get ready to explore Sydney for the natural beauty that she is. Tread the Bondi to Bronte walk, taking a ferry to Manly Beach, or take an afternoon to walk through the The Rocks, the botanic gardens and then stop for a drink at Opera Bar to admire the Sydney Opera House and Australia’s most famous coat-hanger, the Sydney Harbour Bridge (which you can climb if you feel game!)
