Hi everyone.

Planning my trip to Sydney for next month and wanted to check for some recommendations for activities (that are not the usual tourist spots), must-see places and restaurants worth tryin.

Thanks in advance.

We googled for free walking tours and found a great one around The Rocks. The deal is you tip what you like at the end.

Oh and for eateries, look up Harry's Cafe De Wheels. There are a few now, their specialty is pie and mash, different sorts available. A Sydney institution.

I always love ambling along Glebe Point Road, checking out the used bookstore, eating at the various bakery cafes.
Also taking a ferry just anywhere for views of the harbour.
Last time I was in Sydney I took a ferry to Manly, and then did some hiking around North Head, where we encountered an echidna, also out for a stroll. Pretty amazingly cool.
