How to Study Abroad in Sydney, Australia

Skyline of Sydney, Australia“G’day, mate!” When I hear these two words, I automatically think of Australia. If you are like me and these words inspire you to want to study abroad in this country, I have two more words for you: Sydney, Australia.

Sydney was first established in 1788 as a British penal colony. Today, the city is home to 4.6 million people and the University of Sydney, the oldest university in the country. The city is also a cultural hub, hosting many social and cultural festivals and events throughout the year. There are also many museums and art galleries in Sydney, such as the Museum of Sydney, the White Rabbit Gallery, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

So have you decied that you want to study abroad in Sydney? Here are some of the things we at EDUinReview think you should do to get the most out of your study abroad experience in this city.

1. Take a ride on the Manly Ferry.
Sydney is surrounded by the Sydney Harbour, which is a perfect place to take a cruise on the Manly Ferry. By taking this ferry, you will get excellent views of the city, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Opera House as you leave the city. The trip takes about 30 minutes to get from Sydney to Manly. Once in Manly, you can spend some time in the city. I recommend satisfying your sweet tooth at the Max Brenner Chocolate Bar. This is a good activity to do with your family when they come visit you in Sydney.

2. Save up for a ticket to the Open Air Cinema. This cinema is quite expensive, but it is worth the price. Here you can watch a movie in an open-air cinema, with a backdrop of the city skyline, the Opera House, and the Harbour Bridge. There is also a colony of fruit bats that live near by and you can often see them flying overhead during the movie. The Open Air Cinema is only open during the summer. You should book your tickets well in advance because this venue sells out quickly and it can be hard to get a ticket.
