Guest Post – Exploring Sydney’s Multiculturalism:
A Fabulous Experience!
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia I have managed to explore most of the prominent cities in the country including Adelaide, Canberra, Alice Springs, Darwin, and Perth. There is little doubt that all these Australian cities are exceptionally beautiful and offer breathtaking natural attractions, however the kind of experience I got from my Sydney trip was just out of this world.
Sydney is one such city, wherein I traveled by a campervan with my entire family including my mother, father, and wife. We had booked a campervan well in advance from Aussie Campervans so that we did not have to pay a higher price for the same later on. And trust me, it was a great decision to book a vehicle well ahead of time, when it comes to saving those unwanted expenses. It felt great when we saw the last minute rental price of the same vehicle was way higher when compared to the rate which we had hired it for.
The Journey Started With Utmost Excitement
Since we were so excited about our trip, all of us got up at 4 o’clock in the morning that day as we were pretty motivated to start the journey early. I think we started from our home in Melbourne around 6 o’clock in the morning with our bags mostly packed with edibles and comfortable clothes.
The Coastal Route Was Amazing
When we decided to travel from Melbourne to Sydney, one of our first desires was to explore the coastal route, which can be easily covered in 15 to 20 hours, depending on your speed, driving skills and the kind of breaks that you take on the way.
Driving the coastal route is a mind-blowing experience if you are looking forward to exploring amazing food, great wines, and picture-perfect coastal towns.
Mornington Peninsula Offers Great Wineries
Once you start traveling towards the southeast from Melbourne, you will discover incredible towns that sit on the Mornington Peninsula. Within an hour’s drive from Melbourne, we started exploring beautiful wineries and astonishing beaches. On the way we took out some time to explore Port Phillip Bay wherein we spent quality time watching seals as well as dolphins. In addition to that, we also spent some time in Phillip Island in order to discover the koalas and penguins.
Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park
Since we were not running short of time, we decided to explore Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park on the way to make ourselves familiar with quirky wildlife, some of which cannot be spotted easily in other parts of Australia. Once we drove further we got a chance to observe more startling vineyards and beautiful villages.
The Wilsons Promontory National Park
We also took out some time to visit one of the most important places in Victoria called the Wilsons Promontory National Park. It is a great place to discover the traces of aboriginal Australians. In addition to that, it is again a wonderful place to discover amazing wildlife. Besides, you can also plan to discover Mt Oberon from where you can have amazingly beautiful views of nearby hills and an uneven coastline.
If you want to see those picture perfect beaches, you need to drive within the park.
Exploring Metung Was An
After enjoying the beauty of the Wilsons Promontory National Park, the other important place that we explored on the way was Metung – one of the most important towns in Victoria’s East Gippsland region.
We Discovered Mallacoota, Narooma and
Jervis Bay On The Way
Before reaching Sydney we got a chance to see coastal towns like Mallacoota and Narooma which were really beautiful. It takes around two and a half to three hours to reach Mallacoota from Metung. And Narooma is a 3 hours drive from Mallacoota. But trust me it’s worth taking your time to explore these places.
After driving for approximately 2 and a half hours from Narooma, we reached a beautiful place called the Jervis Bay. It’s the best place in the entire world to discover white sand.
Making It Finally To Sydney Was Awesome
From Jervis Bay, it took us approximately 3 hours to reach Sydney – one of the most cosmopolitan and multicultural cities in Australia. Here you can meet people from all the different parts of the world. In short, the crowd of this beautiful coastal city in New South Wales is amazing. We explored everything that was presented to us such as Sydney Tower, The Sydney Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, Bondi Beach, Opera House, Taronga Zoo and The Hyde Park Barracks Museum.
Honestly speaking, if someone asks me which is the place that we have enjoyed the most during a roadtrip, trip, my answer would easily be Sydney.
