Some few friends of mine have when we were still studying. gap year experience is a great place to be a volunteer. its great that they have projects abroad as it gives students a chance to travel the world and still do something meaningful.

Travel Tips for Sydney

More than just a Sydney landmark.

by Dreks

One of the reasons i booked myself at Harbour City Hotel was its proximity to St. Mary's Cathedral. At that time i did not know that besides being a landmark it is also historically regarded as the mother church of Australian Catholicism!

As a catholic and away from home, i always started my day everyday visiting this historic church to say my prayers for safety throughout the day. My sense of belongingness owing to my faith somehow gave me extra confidence and security while exploring Sydney.

The church housed a crypt famous for its mosaic floors and conducts Sunday tours after mass at noon. Part of my souvenir was a silver-coated rosary beads bought from their store (but made in Ireland) and a photo taken inside, although unknowingly, it is prohibited to do so without permission and for a minimal fee/donation.

It is located along College St. opposite Hyde Park and closest to St. James subway station.

Currency

by Marpessa

Australian currency is in dollars ($AUD). There are 100 cents to a dollar. We have 5, 10, 20 and 50 cent pieces (coins), which are silver, 1 and 2 dollar coins, which are gold.

We also have 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar notes. Each note is a distinctively different colour and they each have a 'clear window' in the notes. "Australia was the first country in the world to have a complete system of bank notes based on plastic (polymer). These notes provide much greater security against counterfeiting. They also last four times as long as conventional paper (fibrous) notes." (taken from: www.dfat.gov.au/facts/currency.html)

For more information - like who are the people on the notes see the website above.

Bondi Beach

by iandsmith

On a scale of the world's best known beaches, this place rates. Waikiki, Ipinema, Malibu. It's up there. If you're there just to sample an Aussie beach then, trust me, it's very average.
What it does have on the foreshores though is a well trodden boulevarde with an eclectic mix of eating establishments and second class hotels. Hotels as in accommodation that is.
It has a scruffy exterior where dress sense is not the foremost thing in people's minds. After all, the idea is to go an loll around on the beach, have a surf and perve on the opposite sex, activities much indulged in in this part of the world. The southern side beaches of Sydney are not as spectacular or pretty as the northern side but, if you come from a country where beaches are something of a rarity or you come from a Mediterranean country and think the beaches there are good, then you're bound to like Bondi. It has reliable sand, relatively safe waves (but always be cautious and swim between the flags) and you'll never starve with the swag of eating places to choose from.
It's also readily accessible from the city, being the closest beach to the CBD.
This is photo taken looking north on an obviously less-crowded day when it was a little overcast.

Rips and the Surf

by ID19

Please take care in the Surf. There are a hell of alot of tourists who jump into the surf without being aware of the Rips. If you are not aware you will start to feel your legs get sucked out from under you and 'Whooosh' off you go - out to New Zealand. Seriously though, Rips are no laughing matter. It scares the hell out of you and if you are not a strong swimmer or have a boogie board (shark biscuit) to hold onto it can be potentially fatal. If the beach is patrolled by life guards - stick between the flags or if you are on a 'quiet beach' only swim where the locals are. Its probably a good idea to ask the locals anyway. The Pacific is very different to the Med. I wish they would hand out information regarding this fact on incoming flights to Oz. Not hyping things up - just advice from an Australian who grew up far from the coast - someone who got caught in a Rip.

Packing List

by ardenzinho

During the summer months (Nov-Jan), bring light clothing ie tshirts, shorts....Winter months (mid-year) it doesnt snow, so jumpers, jackets are more than adequate. Shouldnt be a problem getting new batteries or films for your camera or video camera...Available in most shops.
