As you might have guessed, Sydney isn't necessarily the cheapest city to visit. Especially after traveling
for a few months you just don't want to spend a lot of money anymore because living in hostels,
paying for groceries etc is expensive enough! Luckily, you don't have to stay in the hostel the whole day
just to avoid paying for anything since there is actually quite a lot of stuff you can do for free or for
very little money. Here are my "top six things to do in Syndey for travelers on a budget".

Let's start with some cultural attractions. The Art Gallery of New South Wales for example is really, really
interesting with loads of different, partly changing exhibitions and doesn't cost you a penny. Further options are
the Museum of Contemporary Art or the Australian National Maritime Museum which are both for free as well.

Feeling hungry but you don't at all fancy the food you have got in the fridge at the hostel? Lentil
as Anything it is then. I actually didn't check out the one in Sydney (391 King Street, Newtown) but I've been
to the branch in Melbourne and it's the best concept ever! The people working there are volunteers and
offer a buffet with all kind of vegetarian food. In the end, you pay as much as you think the meal was
worth (normally around $12, preferably more). An absolutely cool experience, go check it out!

If you just want to hang out somewhere nice for a while, sit down in the Botanic Garden or at the Circular Quay/
Opera House. There are always people around and most of the time you can even enjoy some live music for free.

Looking for something to do on Saturday? The place to be is definitely the Flea Market in Glebe on Glebe
Point Road in front of the primary school. I personally love flea markets and this one is honestly the best I've
ever been to. Loads of pretty pop up stores selling braletts, christal chocker etc but also a huge amount of
students selling their super stylish clothes for basically nothing. Every second vendor looks like a model and the atmosphere is just really relaxed. Sit down to enjoy a Turkish kebab or try homemade granola for free. And
since you are already there, go and check out the Fish Market on your way back into the city. The range
of fresh products is huuuge and you might be lucky and grab a bite of salmon somewhere in the alleys -
after eating salmon only once in more than six months the taste made me so, so happy!

To get out of the city centre of Sydney you have to use public transport and have to have a card called
Opal which you can top up with money. Once you enter a bus or a train, just simply tap the card on or off
and they will charge your card the exact amount. On Sundays the amount is capped to $2,50 for the whole day.
So if you want to go to Manly Beach or the Blue Mountains without spending heaps make sure to go at the end
of the week. That is so much cheaper! Of course there is some stuff you just can't miss out on. Bondi Beach and
Bondi Iceberg are definitely two of these attractions. Pack a picnic, grab a towl and hop into the bus. One way
costs you between $3,50 and $4,50, depending on from where you take the bus, but it's definitely worth it! Snap a
pic of the pools (no need to hop in there if you want to save money), then hit the beach, relax and get tanned.
