What to do in Sydney

Scale Sydney Tower Eye

Climb Harbour Bridge

There's no better way to see Sydney than from 134m above the harbour, at the top of one of the world's most iconic bridges. The views from Harbour Bridge are spectacular during the day and downright stunning at night. Bring a camera for the ultimate selfie.

Be a Pirate

Centuries ago, pirates roamed the waters around Australia. Attack of the Pirates recreates those days on a proper pirate vessel (a traditional tall ship) using actual functioning cannons, sword fights and plenty of (harmless) explosions. You can buy a family pass.
