What do the staff of Life's an Adventure think about Sydney?

We love Sydney. We love The weather and it has best of both worlds; City life and the outdoors so accessible when living here.

Which activity provides the most memorable experience?

They are all good. Depends what you are looking for? I personally love our Sydney Harbour Kayak. If I wanted to show off Sydney to a visitor from out of town. This would be the tour for them to fall in love with Sydney. Imagine lunch on a secluded beach right on Sydney harbour with the Opera House and Bridge in the distance as the backdrop. It is too good to be true.

What is your advice for people visiting Sydney?

Make the most of your time in Sydney. Life’s an Adventure. Don’t waste a second. Do something you don’t usually do, something out of the ordinary. Go see a play or Opera at the Opera House. You must see a game of AFL if you have not seen it before!
