1. Climb the Sydney Harbour BridgeOf course climbing the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge has got to be our number one thing to do in Sydney. Not only do you get the opportunity to get up close and personal with this magnificent landmark, you also get a personal history lesson from your guide about the struggles of the great men who built the bridge and the convict's colonisation of Sydney. As you climb up and down the steel arch you also get a stunning panoramic view of the architectural wonders that line the CBD, the lush botanical gardens and the terracotta roof tops of the suburbs beyond. It may be pricey but trust me it is worth it.

2. Take a harbour cruiseInstead of your average boat tour, take a party boat around the harbours. And even if its not your 'thing' you still get an incredible cruise around Darling Harbour, the Sydney Harbour and the beaches that line the coast. Whether you are into partying all afternoon to house music or a chilled lunch affair with a acoustic guitar there will be a boat tour for you.
See Refuge's Facebook page for their upcoming events and party boats tours.
3. Get some sunshine on Watsons BayWith over 300 days of sunshine a year in Sydney, getting down to one of Sydney's 100 plus beaches is a must. Forget over-rated Bondi Beach. Watsons Bay, just 11km from the city, is a pretty white sand beach and definitely worth a visit. The sheltered blue waters are perfect for swimming with an incredible back drop of the harbour. And after a day on a coastal walk or just soaking in the sunshine visit Doyles on the Beach for some tasty fish and chips.
4. Find a secret barSydney, as edgy and cool as it is already, it gets even better when you stumble across the sound of thumping music which leads you to a secret door and a secret world beyond. I don't want to spoil the secret but I urge you to take a stroll down York Street where a very unassuming shop takes on a secret life by night.
5. Eat breakfast, a lot
