Sydney for the Quirky Tourist

One of the best things about Sydney is that it really does have something to offer everyone. Whether you like to live it up large in glitz and glamour or relax on a beach, Sydney has a wealth of tourism gems to satisfy any taste. That’s why, if you’re a traveller who likes things a little offbeat, this guide is going to be music to your quirky little ears. We’ve put together the top ten quirky tourist attractions to enjoy in Sydney, so get your travel insurance in order and jump on a plane, because you won’t wanna miss this.
The Rocks Ghost Tour
Feel like creeping yourself out a little? The Rocks was the first suburb in Sydney to be colonized, first with a gaol and then with the first settlers. Before that it was home to the Indigenous Cadigal people, the first inhabitants of the land and custodians of it for 40,000 years. Scare yourself silly with haunted houses, old prison cells and poltergeists a plenty. Are you game?
Tank Stream Tour
The Sydney Tank Stream was Sydney’s original water supply and runs underneath the entire city. For a really different perspective on Sydney, head underground to discover the secret hidden world of tunnels we walk on every day.
Waverly Cemetery
Overlooking the ocean on the cliffs between Bondi and Coogee is the Waverly Cemetery. Forgive us for being a little morbid for a moment, but there is something fascinating about old cemeteries. With this one occupying one of the best bits of real estate in town, it’s worth a look.
Kit and Kaboodle Supper Club
(33/37 Darlinghurst Road)
If you’re looking for a fun night out but can’t be bothered with the usual city crowd, why not try out Kit and Kaboodle Supper Club in King’s Cross? Filled to the brim with kooky, quirky clientele, Kit and Kaboodle’s biggest selling point is the box of dress-ups for communal use at the door. It’s a LOT of fun.
Feel like a movie night? How about a vegetarian buffet? Govindas is a truly unique establishment, right in the heart of Kings Cross, that caters to those who want a bit more of an intimate cinema experience. Also hosting meditations and chant sessions, Govindas seamlessly blends Eastern spirituality and Western cinema. A good mix, and the food is phenomenal!
Moonlight Cinema at Bondi Beach
If you’re in Sydney during the summer months there’s nothing quite like watching a film outdoors against the picturesque setting of Bondi Beach. The Iconic Bondi Pavilion turns its lawns into an outdoor cinema and patrons bring picnics and wine to watch the latest box office hits.
Sydney Harbour Cruise
There are so many cruises of Sydney Harbour on offer that you’re bound to find one that suits your tastes. Choose between a tall shit tour complete with costumed crew, a jet-boat tour, a dinner cruise, a dress-up cruise, a singles cruise—there is even a laser clay shooting cruise!

Sydney is a city full of character and life, and if you’re a tourist full of the same then you’ll love its quirky side.
