Sydney is a fascinating city with a dazzling range of sightseeing attractions and activities for people of all ages to enjoy. At Pegasus Coach Tours, we regularly organise day tours and extended tours for groups and individuals, alike – and many of these outings are ideally suited to seniors. In this post, we’re highlighting a few activities that seniors can enjoy in Sydney.
Art Gallery of New South Wales
This is Sydney’s most impressive art gallery, and it’s a great place for people of all ages to visit. It’s also wheelchair accessible and offers a relaxing change of pace for those who have spent enough time outdoors and wouldn’t mind retreating to a comfortable, air-conditioned space. The permanent collection includes European and Australian art dating back to the 19th century. But the real treasure here is the collection of Indigenous art found in the basement gallery. The 20th-century Australian art exhibit is also well worth your time.
Royal Botanic Gardens
The opportunity to bask in the tranquillity of the Royal Botanic Gardens is not to be missed in Sydney. These gardens grew out of the first vegetable patch planted in Sydney by the colonists, but they actually have a much richer history dating back to an early Aboriginal settlement. You can come here simply to enjoy the serene environment, or join a free walking tour departing at either 10:30 or 13:00. This is also a popular place to organise a picnic in Sydney.
Shows at the Sydney Opera House
When it comes to iconic architecture, the Sydney Opera House is certainly one of the most recognisable structures in the modern world. It’s also a great place to catch a show. In fact, there are more than 40 different shows, concerts, talks and other gigs hosted here every single week! In other words, you’re sure to find something that interests you on the schedule, and the chance to enjoy it in such a world-class venue is not to be missed. Visit the Sydney Opera House website to see what’s playing when you’re visiting.
Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk
This walk in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs has become quite popular with seniors in recent years. The route takes in iconic beaches, leafy parks and a few outstanding whale-watching points. The great thing is, you don’t have to walk the entire stretch. Instead, you can simply choose the section of the walk that most interests you and focus on that. Bondi, Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee beaches are the main highlights, and any of them are worth a look in and of themselves.
