Despite the season or time of day, Sydney is always breathtakingly beautiful. From cliff top beach walks to weekend markets, there are an abundance of activities that allow the solo traveler to dive right into the heart of the city and culture.

Bondi to Bronte is a stunning 30-45min walk along the coast. Start early so you can park behind Icebergs (http://icebergs.com.au/). Check out the famous Icebergs pool, walk past Tamarama (a cute smaller beach) and wind up in Bronte before heading...

Bennelong Point, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
Seriously. We were there for almost 3 weeks and this never got old. Make sure you go to the bar along the edge of the opera house for a nice glass (or bottle!) of wine and soak up the views.
