If you’re someone who is more “live to eat”, rather than “eat to live”, the prospect of travelling to Sydney on a backpacker budget might be creating a feeling of unease in your insatiable stomach.
Yes, Sydney is glitzy and glamorous, with trendy new restaurants and bars opening up every weekend, but you don’t have to confine yourself to living off the free hostel brekkies and bags of Goon just because you’re on a budget.
How, you say? Read on, my hungry friend.
Scrimping for cash? Don’t have a dollar to spare? But don’t want to miss out all that Sydney has to offer? Here’s an idea, you could explore one of New South Wales’ most spectacular coastlines. From Bondi to Coogee spend the day surfing, swimming, drinking beers and watching the sun go down along this beautiful, 7 km coastal stretch. You’ll see Sydney from a local’s point of view and it’s free, everyone loves a freebie!
Surfing is one of those iconic Aussie scenes, catching a bright blue wave on an epic beach, sun high in the sky and looking oh so gnarly on a board. You can’t go to New South Wales, Australia and not give it a go. You just can’t OK. If you’re a bit of a paddlepuss when it comes to hitting the waves, then you should definitely think about a couple of surf lessons. You’ll gain confidence in the water and make loads of mates at the same time!
Take yourself off the tourist trail and head somewhere a little bit different in New South Wales. You’ll discover paradise islands, picturesque wineries, untouched-beaches and ancient Aboriginal artwork. Here are our top 5 spots outside of Sydney waiting for you to explore:
