Some ideas to satisfy your adventure cravings in Sydney
Sydney is an exciting travel destination for those craving adventure of all types, on land, water, and air. There is always a discovery waiting around the corner from your Sydney accommodation where thrill-seekers can take their pick of the most unique and exciting experiences all over the city. If you’re looking for heart-thumping adventures, here are some activities we would like to recommend:
Race Car Driving
Fancy being Michael Schumacher for a day? Head off to the race track near your accommodation in Sydney. There are many tracks and motorsport parks where you can drive as fast as your heart desires. A popular option is the Sydney Motorsport Park at Eastern Creek. Meanwhile, Extreme Go Karting Sydney is a good place to visit for families and drivers of all abilities.
If drifting is more your style, there are driving courses to help you satisfy your need for speed. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, Sydney has some places that offer drifting, such as Drift School Australia. Have a blast on your own or learn the basics with a guide.
Quad Biking Adventure
Once you’ve had a lovely breakfast at your Sydney accommodation, you can go off on a glorious quad bike adventure at Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures, about forty minutes to an hour north of the city.
Quad bikes are definitely not for the fainthearted – they are powerful all-terrain vehicles that can kick up some serious dirt and put your skills to the test. There are fully guided tracks that traverse through a huge expanse of wilderness and sand dunes. Quad biking circuits are also available for a more challenging course.
Abseiling, Canyoning, and Rock Climbing
Die-hard rock climbers and hikers love Sydney for its proximity to rocks, canyons, and places to practice their climbing skills. From your Sydney accommodation, you can find canyons and challenging cliffs after a drive of just one or two hours, such as the Grand Canyon Walking Track.
Canyoning down under is a unique experience you can’t miss. Spend just a few hours or a full day exploring the beautiful canyons, caves and mountains in Sydney.
Get back to nature and flex your inner daredevil at Sydney’s treetop adventure parks. These parks feature exhilarating escapades with suspension bridges, high ropes, flying foxes, and more than a hundred challenges, all at the tops of towering trees. Get ready to scream your lungs out with your mates at roller coaster zip lines, too, native Australian wildlife and gorgeous views await. Just remember to wear comfortable clothes and enclosed shoes and bring spare clothing to change into after the activities have finished.
Jet Boating and Motor Boating
Before you make your accommodation Sydney booking, keep in mind that Double Bay is one of the best places in Sydney for water activities and one of the most exhilarating of these is Jet Boating.
Just a stone’s throw away from Savoy Hotel, you can go on a jet boat ride that’s usually 30 minutes long and packed with excitement. With a tremendous amount of horsepower in a Jet Boat, prepare to get wet on a really intense ride complete with sweeps and power brakes. Check out Oz Jet Boating and Thunder Jet Boat for more information.
If you don’t quite want to go full throttle, motorboats are a less extreme, equally exciting version. A motorboat can take you different scenic routes in Sydney with none of the hassles of travelling by foot.
From different angles, you can see the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and more, all with the thrilling buzz of a powerful engine and the wind in your hair…and best of all, you can drive it yourself!
Whitewater rafting is on the To Do list of any adventure seeker – there’s just something really thrilling about getting swept here and there on the water and all the splash that comes with it. Afterwards, you get a real feeling of accomplishment, as if you’ve conquered something intensely dangerous.
Engage in this electrifying sport just an hour away from your Sydney accommodation at Penrith Whitewater Stadium. They have options for guided or self-guided rafting. Whatever you choose, you are definitely in for a whopper of a ride.
If you look out at the city from your Sydney accommodation, you’ll find that it is surrounded by water. So, there’s definitely no shortage of water activities. Instead of going on foot, you can paddle through Sydney on a kayak. There are many natural waterways for paddling, and you can go off on your own or with a group.
Alternatively, if you prefer a real heart-thumping ride, you can check out the rapids on the 2000 Sydney Olympics course at Penrith Whitewater Stadium. You’ll navigate the course as if you’re on a wild, turbulent river – perfect for that adrenaline high.
Of course, no trip to Sydney is complete without a stop at Bondi Beach. This beach is home to thousands of passionate surfers and is a popular tourist destination. In fact, many people arrange their accommodation in Sydney, booking close to Bondi Beach.
You can take a beginner surfing class from one of the many instructors on the beach, or do away with classes, pick up your surfboard and meet the waves on your own.
Can’t decide if you want a water or an aerial adventure? No need to decide – jetpacking offers you the thrills of both! On a jet pack ride, you’re going to fly through the air from the blast of a jetpack unit.
A jetpack unit has specially designed nozzles that blast water in powerful streams to send you up into the air as high as 10 metres above the water. Conversely, you can also dive headlong into the water as far down as you want to go. Why choose when you can have the best of both worlds?
When you book your Sydney-side accommodation, make sure you find one that’s near a skydiving site. Skydiving is one of the most death-defying activities you could ever do. There’s nothing quite like soaring through the air.
In a similar vein, try indoor skydiving. There are several centres throughout Sydney, the most famous being the Sydney-Wollongong Beach skydive.
Flying Lesson with Aerobatics
Want even more aerial adventures? You could go on a private helicopter ride, or if you can muster up all the courage you have, you can take a flying lesson with aerobatics. Leap into flight and sit in the pilot’s seat for a change. Training centres are available to teach you how to perform aerobatics in the aircraft. Talk about the ultimate high!
