Visiting Sydney, Australia in a Minute #Video

Sydney, Australia is undoubtedly one of my favourite cities in the world, however the last time I visited a few years ago I wasn’t really creating travel videos yet so I was more than excited to be returning again this past April and May (2012) to capture what I love about it on film. Starting with a quick video “Visiting Sydney, Australia in a Minute” I highlight some of the great things to do in the city like:

Visiting and taking a tour through the iconic Sydney Opera House, riding the Monorail, go to one of its many famous beaches like Bondi or Manly, enjoy some of its many markets like the Friday night Chinatown Markets, Paddy’s market for cheap souvenirs and the Rocks Market for great food and local crafts, visiting Taronga Zoo, going on a  wine tour to the Hunter Valley and a whole lot more.

Sydney is a massive city so like most it is impossible to fit it all into a one minute video but I would like to think I gave it a good shot. Did you like my Sydney travel tips? Have you ever visited Sydney? What else would you suggest for people to do when visiting for the first time?

I hope you enjoy and stay tuned for more videos from Australia coming soon.

      The Kangaroos were so lazy when I was there, I went back more than once to see if they would be up and moving around, but they never were :( haha

    Did you meet Luci when you were in Berlin? She does great 1-minute travel videos!

    Loved the video—especially the shot of the surfer dudes at Bondi ;)
