Things to see and do in Sydney

Sydney Botanic Gardens Thrifty Car Hire

Sun, sand and surf: there’s nowhere quite like Sydney! The world-famous harbourside city is teeming with activities to keep you entertained from dawn to dusk. With some of the world’s most breathtaking natural beauty and sandy coastlines, there’s no shortage of fun to be had for the outdoor explorer. Start your adventure by stopping off for a swim at iconic Bondi Beach, just 7km east of the CBD, or taking a stroll along the harbourfront in Barangaroo.

Vivid Sydney Thrifty Car Hire

For the shopaholic, Sydney is home to some of the world's most fashion-forward boutiques and retail outlets, with shopping hubs on Pitt St, Oxford St and dotted throughout the city. When you’re all shopped out, give your tastebuds a treat at one of the top-notch restaurants in the city area or one of the neighbouring culinary hotspots like Surry Hills, Paddington, Kings Cross or Glebe.

If you’re travelling with pint-sized tourists, you’ll find plenty of family-friendly activities and places to explore throughout Sydney, such as the Wild Life Zoo, Madame Tussauds and the Sea Life Aquarium.

Exploring outside the CBD

The CBD area is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to things to see and do in Sydney. For a true blue Aussie holiday, hitting the open road in your rental car is one the best ways to see what this beautiful region is all about. From the lush green vineyards of the Hunter Valley north-west of Sydney to the rugged mountainous bushland of the Blue Mountains and, the potential for unforgettable experiences is only limited by the length of your stay!
For larger groups and families planning an exciting road trip, we have a range of buses and vans that are perfect for longer journeys, such as a surf trip up north to Crescent Head or the pristine white sandy beaches of Jervis Bay down south. For couples, our luxury sedans and roomy hatchbacks make the perfect ride for a romantic getaway.
