2018 COAT NSW Conference
7 September, 2018 I Pullman Sydney, Hyde Park

Sydney 101

The 2018 COAT NSW Conference will be taking place in the best season to be in Sydney - Spring. During Spring in Sydney the weather is warm, the flowers are blooming and the water is starting to warm up enough at our beautiful beaches to take the first dip of the season. The 2018 COAT NSW Conference provides the opportunity to take advantage of the trip for more than just Professional Development. Here are some of our top tips of what to see and what to do whilst you are in Sydney.

Sydney Harbour Bridge - Climb

See Sydney like a local - take the climb of your life to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

With their Climb Leaders as your guide, you will suit-up in their specially designed outdoor gear and ascend. From its fascinating underbelly to its summit, 134 metres above the Harbour, the Bridge is the pride of Sydney.

Museum of Contemporary Art

Located on one of the world’s most spectacular sites on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the Museum of Contemporary Art opened its doors to the public in November 1991. Established through a bequest by Australian expatriate artist John Power (1881-1943), who left his personal fortune to the University of Sydney to inform and educate Australians about international contemporary visual art, the MCA is dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting contemporary art.

Sydney Opera House

“It stands by itself as one of the indisputable masterpieces of human creativity, not only in the 20th century but in the history of humankind.” Expert evaluation report to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, 2007.

Fusing ancient and modernist influences, and built on a site sacred to the local Gadigal people for thousands of years, the sculptural elegance of the Sydney Opera House has made it one of the most recognisable buildings of the twentieth century, synonymous with inspiration and imagination.

Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk

The classic Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk is one of Sydney's postcard experiences. Discover sparkling bays, secret rock pools, stunning cliff top views and sunny cafes as you walk by five beautiful Sydney beaches. The walk hugs the coastline for six kilometres through Sydney’s eastern suburbs, from Bondi to Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee.

Royal Botanic Gardens

The Royal Botanic Garden, which is just a short walk around the water's edge from the Sydney Opera House, is situated in one of the most picturesque settings of gardens anywhere in the world.

The garden is on the shores of Farm Cove, on the eastern side of the Sydney central business district, and laid out on undulating harbourside land. From the top of the garden there are panoramic views of Sydney Harbour.

Q Station Ghost Tours

If you want to experience a slightly different side of Sydney - head out to Manly, on the Northern beaches for an adventure in the world of the paranormal.

As the sun goes down over Q Station, many of the shadowy buildings have stories to tell – 150 years of misfortune and untimely deaths, stories of pain, loss and suffering – all tales of the restless spirits who linger today. 

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, this tour will keep you entertained as you discover the intriguing stories of Q Station’s history and most eccentric characters. Grab a lantern and join the adventure!
