Attraction ian 1/5/2014

In cities like Sydney there are myriad attractions for locals and tourists alike. Choosing the best things to see and do in any neck of the woods can be a very personal decision so I asked Jessica from Rydges Sydney Airport for her Top 5 things to do if you stay there. Jessica went for these, in no particular order:

  • Little Congwong Beach
  • Sydney Harbour Heli Flight
  • Parks & Recreational Facilities
  • Golf
  • Rock Climbing or Bowling


CongwongFirstly, a little attraction that is a bit of a well-kept secret, Little Congwong Beach – it is a small, quiet and secluded beach at the end of Anzac Parade, La Perouse. It is pretty much a clothing optional beach for sunbaking – if this is a concern, head next door to the slightly larger Congwong Beach.

Sydney Harbour Heli Flights cost $209 per person – at a glance that may see a tad expensive but apart from the amazing thrill, it is an investment in a lifetime memory. The 20 minute flight takes you soaring over Sydney’s glory – the Bridge, the Harbour, the Opera House, Manly Cover and the Sydney Skyline. Here’s a link to the official website

golfMascot can be associated with industrial estates but there here are some lovely parks & recreational facilities on the area like Waterworth Park, Tempe Recreation Reserve, Cahill Park, Rockdale Bicentennial Park and Riverine Park. More info here

If your idea of a good recreational facility is a golf course, the area has them in spades. Rydges Sydney Airport is surrounded by golf courses and driving ranges here are links, pardon the pun - Tempe Driving Range, Kogarah Golf Course, Barton Park Golf Range, The Lakes Golf Course and Bonnie Doon Golf Course.

Rock Climbing or Bowling are both handy activities from Rydges Sydney Airport. There’s the Sportrock Climbing Centre at Alexandria – as well as rock climbing, they also offer yoga classes. Here is a website link… and Manhattan Superbowl at Mascot is a fun and retro way to bring out the ‘happy days’ inside. Here’s that website
