Sydney: Where Beachboys spend their holidays
Fantastic beaches, breathtaking scenery, a lot of bare skin and toned Beach Boys: Sydney, the capital of the Australian state of New South Wales has a lot to offer and is a very popular destination for gay tourists:
It is said that each one out of 10 residents in Sydney is gay. So Sydney has the largest gay community worldwide except San Francisco. Especially nice: Homosexuals are understood and are also considered as an accepted and valued part of community. And so the rainbow flag flutters over Australia. However, the cities Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide are still the hub for gay people.
The gay and lesbian center of Sydney is located in Darlinghurst District, England. Around the Oxford Street and Taylor Square there are numerous gay bars, clubs, discos, hotels and shops.
The largest gay and lesbian carnival in the southern hemisphere called gay and lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG), which is very famous. Each year, more than 100 events take place.
Everyone who wants to relax at the beach and lie in the sun (and would certainly look for handsome men), we recommend the Glamorama-beach and the nudist Spot Lady Jane.
It will be hot – I guarantee that.
By the way: The best climatic travel time for Australia is from mid-April to mid-June and from mid-August to mid-October.
Culture and Sights
Sydney’s culture has much more to offer than we can mention here. There is the Opera House at Circular Quay - Sydney's landmark. You’ll have the best view at it from the water. Here you can relax in one of the many cafes while drinking coffee, listening to buskers or lie on the lawns and relax.
Adventurous souls can climb at the great arch of the Harbour Brigde (cost: 200 to 300 dollars). Manley, a very cosy city situated in the north of Sydney, is very popular for its surfers, café and pub scene.
We also want to recommend the Bondi-Coogee Walk. This is one of the most beautiful walks in Sydney. You can go to Bondi Beach by bus or train and then run for 2 hours along Australia's most famous beach. The Clovelly Bay is perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
Would you like to shop? Then off to Paddy's Market in Haymarket! There are more than 1000 stalls, which sell souvenirs, cheap clothes and fresh fruits and vegetables.
You can perfectly go shopping in Central Business District, the eastern district of Paddington and on many local markets in the city.
