Sydney's world famous Opera House

The great thing about Tripadvisor is sharing your knowledge and experience with others.  While posters can offer advice based on their experience or knowledge to posters about their forthcoming trip, invariably each person who travels to Sydney and beyond, is looking for something that suits their needs and ticks the boxes on their "must do / must see" list.

Trip Reports are a fabulous way of sharing knowledge and experience and allowing the reader to see what others have seen, where they have been, what they have eaten as well as their thoughts about their travels. 

 They also provide food for thought about different things to see and do on perhaps your first trip or your next trip to Sydney and its environs - and perhaps places and activities that may not have been thought of before.

Below is a collection of links to Trip Reports posted  on Tripadvisor which will be updated from time to time.  Please enjoy reading them as much as the people who enjoyed there stay here !!
