Sydney Australia

Thing To Do...

Sydney Australia is a big city so there is a lot of things to do. Something to do is go to the Taronga Zoo. There you can see some animals that you wouldn't be able to see in Michigan such as, koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, platy pi, and chinchillas. You can even go on a sky safari which like a ski lift that takes you around the zoo. At night you might be able to see a local band preform on the outdoor stage. Another thing you can do is Luna Park. Luna Park as an amusement park that has over 30 rides and activities. One of the activities is the Wonky walk. In the wonky walk is big slides, mirror mazes, and fun challenges to go through like moving sidewalks, spinning floors, and walking through a spinning tunnel.

What To Eat...

While you are in Sydney Australia you may want to try some foods that you wouldn't consider or can't try in America. One "Australian" food is Vegemite. Vegemite is a salty, slightly bitter paste that you may find on crackers, crumpets, and toast. You could find Vegemite in some American stores but it is quite hard to find. A restaurant you could go to is Nandos. Nandos is a chicken based restaurant that is famous for their spicy PERI-PERI sauce. Nandos is mostly in the U.K. and Australia.

Beaches In Sydney...

There are many beaches in Sydney but there are two beaches that really stand out. Manly Beach is a big tourist attraction because of all of the 4s's. Shops, swimming, surfing, sun. Another beach is Bondi Beach. This beach is many locals favorites because of the of the views. You can see brightly colored coast line houses, flowers, and much more. Also the sunsets on both beaches are amazing.

Common Sports In Sydney...

There are some sports in Australia that we don't play here in America or we just have different names for them. One sport that isn't really common in America is Cricket. Cricket is played similar to baseball but there are some differences. In baseball you need 9 players on each team. In cricket there is 11 players on each team. Also in Australia, they call soccer football. So instead of saying "lets go play some soccer." you would say 'lets go play some football."
