Are you wondering what to do in Sydney in only 48 hours? Great question! It’s not easy to pack all the amazing sites into a 2 day Sydney itinerary.

And to be honest, I wish you had more time because Sydney deserves longer than two days, but I know that we are not all blessed with a lot of time.

Sydney 2 Day Itinerary

This is why I’ve prepared an action-packed itinerary for Sydney in 2 days, so you can see all the highlights and the best that Sydney has to offer.

Day 1: Unmissable Things to Do in Sydney

The first day is about ticking off the highlights and most unmissable attractions. These are the sites you simply cannot miss.

9.00am – Circular Quay

Wander around the Quay and take an “I was here” photo in front of these famous structures and feel the pulse of the city.

11.00am – Royal Botanic Gardens

From the eastern side of the bridge and Opera House, you have easy access to the Royal Botanic Gardens, in my opinion, one of the most impressive gardens in the world, certainly from a location standpoint. 

12.00pm – Picnic lunch in the Botanic Gardens

Pick a spot anywhere, or walk to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair for one of the best vantage points in Sydney with distant views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge (especially awesome for sunset).

2.00pm – Walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge

I suggest a walk across the bridge, but of course, if you want the experience of a lifetime by climbing over the Sydney Harbour Bridge you definitely need to book ahead.
