Party With the Locals

There are no party people like Australian, I’ve seen it first hand. Most Australians are so much fun, laid back, and are simply memorable to party with.

Being a beach city and a surfer’s paradise, you can only expect beach parties left and right every weekend. Since the summer in coming (summer in Australia is during the last quarter of the year), you will hear party events almost everyday!

If it matches your trip and you’ll be here during the holidays of December, make sure you celebrate the New Years Eve in Sydney to experience partying with the locals and make extraordinary memories!

Spend a day at Homebush Bay and visit the SS Ayrfield, one of the decommissioned ships that were left here. Now, it became a nice attraction to travelers because of the foliage and the mangrove trees that sprouted in it. It is also known as The Floating Forest, for it still floats despite being taken over by trees. Amazing, isn’t?
