No need to bust bud­get on city stay

Life & Style Weekend - - TRAVEL - BY Belinda McDonnell, Flight Cen­tre Noosa

SYD­NEY is one of my favourite des­ti­na­tions to visit for a close and af­ford­able hol­i­day.

What I love is the fact that you can fly from the Sun­shine Coast di­rect to Syd­ney.

Make sure you get out and re­ally ex­plore all that this beau­ti­ful city has to of­fer. It is al­ways a must if you are a first time visi­tor to Syd­ney, to visit the main at­trac­tions such as the Opera House, Har­bour Bridge or Syd­ney Tower.

How­ever, if you have the time make sure you also, take a ferry from Cir­cu­lar Quay to Manly, if you en­joy beau­ti­ful scenery and walk­ing, take a walk along the Coastal Walk from Coogee to Bondi.

There are so many won­der­ful spots along the walk you will dis­cover such as Gor­don’s Bay and Clovelly.

Syd­ney is def­i­nitely a foodie’s dream with so many won­der­ful restau­rants. It re­ally is a ques­tion of what out­look or view you are after to ac­com­pany your meal.

One of my favourite set­tings is the Coogee Pav­il­ion. Lo­cated along the coast, it al­ways has a sen­sa­tional at­mos­phere and you can ei­ther en­joy the views of Coogee beach from the roof top bal­cony, or al­ter­na­tively a lovely meal in­side.

There are won­der­ful cof­fee shops in Coogee, per­fect to visit after you have walked the coastal walk.

I would highly rec­om­mend vis­it­ing the Botan­i­cal Gar­dens. There are so many beau­ti­ful spots to have a pic­nic, whether it is by the water or un­der a beau­ti­ful tree in the park.

My favourite spot is Ben­ne­long Lawn. You can en­joy your pic­nic whilst hav­ing front row views to both the Opera House and the Har­bour Bridge.

Ab­so­lutely mag­i­cal, es­pe­cially at sun­set.

The great part about all of this is when it comes to book­ing your Aus­tralian ad­ven­ture, you have peace of mind know­ing you have the best price pos­si­ble with pur­chas­ing our Cap­tain’s Es­sen­tial Pack­age for only $19*at the time of book­ing.

There­fore if there is a sale and the price drops within 30 days of book­ing, we’ll give you the dif­fer­ence back in a voucher, just let us know.

Come in and visit my team and I at Flight Cen­tre Noosa or phone 1300 084 269 to plan your next hol­i­day.
