5 Reasons Sydney Is Rad

I think some people seem to automatically dismiss Sydney as too ‘expensive’ or too ‘touristy’ sometimes… I guess can see why, but these are just a few of the many reasons why I love it here so much.

01 – It really does have the best of everything! And none of those 3 things are any less cool than the other, they’re all completely awesome. The city is a true, 24/7, hustling, bright light, city, the beaches are out of this world, (and no, I’m not referring to Bondi… There’s more to Syd than Bondi kids!), and the mountains to the West are a total mecca for hikers & explorers. I haven’t been enough other places in the world to compare it to, but you’ve gotta say, Sydney’s got it goin on. And everything is within a couple of hours of eachother.

02 – There’s ALWAYS events happening. Creative & non creative. Food festivals, creative festivals, concerts, everything. Especially in the next few months! Around May/June/July seems to be the hot time for creative awesomeness in this city.

03 – Anyone that follows me on Instagram will know how much I’m in love with Palm Beach. I post it all the time here too, so you get the idea. But it really is one of the most amazing beaches ever. Probs why it’s got it’s own TV show.

04 – Yep, I said it. Melbs is known to be a pretty creative hub in this big old place, but I think Sydney’s got it goin on just as much. There’s always creative events/festivals going on here, which I’m totally in love with. Insight at Apple is one of my fave ones, where they have a talk at the Apple store in George St once a month. Vivid Sydney, is coming up soon, which starts at the end of May! It’s probably one of the/if not the biggest festival in Syd, just because of the HUGE range of stuff that goes down. They have a Vivid Ideas section, where they host a whole bunch of creative talks/seminars/etc. I’ve got tickets to about 3 or 4 events so far!

05 – Most of the time they’re pretty entertaining. Everywhere you go, everyone has some mad accent, or don’t even speak english at all. Good people watching I tell you. They’re always up for a random chat too. Love it.

    I’m definitely a Melbs girl but there was ALWAYS something going on in Syd–and it is a pretty gorgeous city! If only it had better public transportation, I *might* be able to jump on the bandwagon…

    Totally agree with you on all accounts.
    I really miss no 2 and no 4 living in a smaller city, now. I love Melbourne but I do find it funny that people always say “Sydney is the big, flashy one and Melbourne is the arsty, cultural one”. Sydney is full of art, culture and creatives. It’s one of the things I love most about my home town.
    Ok, I lied…I really miss the beaches too. 😦
