The NYLON x Klook Essential Guide to Sydney, including Car Rentals, Whale Watching, Seaplane Tours and more

Sydney is an incredible holiday destination, especially if you’ve never been to the Australian city before. Winter (from June to August) is a great time to go, because there’s nothing like escaping the perpetual summer in Singapore, and Sydney’s winters are mild with average temperatures ranging between 8 – 17°C. It’s not biting cold, and you get to wear all the nice jackets you’ve been saving in your closet.

Sydney is most famous for the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach, but to truly appreciate and take in these sights, you need to get on the water (a jet boat or cruise) or go up into the sky (in a helicopter or seaplane). Here are the essential activities you can book directly on Klook so you don’t have to spend your time queuing or figuring things out once you land.


If you plan to drive in Sydney, chances are you were going to book directly on Hertz or Avis. Klook is a much better choice. Klook gathers all the different suppliers onto one platform where you can compare vehicles, prices and other important info like insurance and the excess you have to pay should anything happen. There are customer reviews as well so you can avoid the suppliers with dubious deals.

Luna Park Sydney is a heritage-listed amusement park located in the harbourside suburb of Milsons Point, which is just across the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. The park opened in 1935 and features 23 attractions including four rollercoasters, and remains one of Sydney’s cultural icons.

The park is only open on select days, and these are highlighted in the calendar when you book on Klook. The Unlimited Rides Day Pass is good value, so you can go on your favourite rides over and over again.

Don’t spend all your time in the city, take a day trip out to the Blue Mountains, which is a leisurely 90-minute drive from Sydney’s Central Business District. The Blue Mountains is a breathtaking mountain range that’s known for their distinctive blue haze (hence the name) caused by the scattering of sunlight through eucalyptus tree particles in the air.

When booking this day tour on Klook, you can filter your activity preferences (eg. guided bush walk or river cruise) and put together a package that interests you.

Get on a cruise and spot whales? It’s almost a guarantee that you’ll see some. If no whales are successfully watched, you receive a free return cruise. If you hope to take photos like the ones you see on Klook, bring a long-focus lens (or you could zoom in on your smartphone).
