Things to see and do with a rental car in Sydney

Vivid Sydney

Sydney is Australia’s tourism capital, with more than 30 million visitors per year. Find out why it’s so popular by adding a few of the city’s top sights to your to-do list while you’re in town. 

You can start with some of Sydney’s more famous attractions. For example, visit or even catch a show at the Sydney Opera House, walk over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and enjoy a coffee (or a cocktail) at The Rocks. Once you’ve explored the CBD, don’t forget to relax on Bondi Beach, try a few games at Luna Park, and visit the animals at Taronga Zoo and the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. With so much to do, your only worry will be fitting it all in!

For anyone looking to head out of the city, there’s something to do in every direction. Head inland and you can visit the beautiful Blue Mountains. With its stunning natural scenery, including the famous Three Sisters rock formation, it’s the ideal spot for a day of hiking. Meanwhile, you can also head north to discover the lively Central Coast and its glorious beaches, or make your way south down the coast to discover the laid-back vibes of Cronulla and the Illawarra region. 

With so much to do and see in and around Sydney, you'll never be short of places to visit with your Thrifty car hire! You can also hire a car from another of Thrifty's many car rental Sydney locations if Sydney Airport is not quite right for you.
