Sunday Markets in Sydney
Sunday markets are big in Sydney. In any major town there will be a market on whether it's a farmers market where you can pick up some great Australian produce, or a trash and treasure where you can pick up a great vintage item and rummage through old books to your heart's content. There are also the main tourist markets such as Paddy's Market or The Rocks Market where you can buy all your souvenirs and Australiana to send to loved ones back home.

Sunday Brunch in Sydney
Breakfast or brunch is a fantastic way to unwind with friends and watch the world go by. A real treat is to sit outside with a hearty or healthy breakfast and enjoy a great cup of coffee. It's also a good opportunity to try out different cafes and take a leisurely wander around different areas of Sydney afterwards.
Centennial Park is a great Sunday spot. Here you can walk the whole way around the park, have a picnic or invite friends to meet and have a BBQ. There is Sunday league soccer played there most Sundays during the season and many joggers, walkers and even the odd rollerblader can be spotted at the park. You can hire out bikes to take a tour, or take a horse for a ride and there is a cafe and restaurant to re-fuel and rest your tired legs afterwards. Take care around Kippax Lake as the swans are nesting throughout June, so keep your distance and see a little wildlife!
Yum Cha on a Sunday is a great way to experience Sydney's Chinatown. Head to Dixon Street and enjoy sampling all kinds of dishes from pork buns to squid and stuffed eggplant. Wash it all down with some Jasmine tea and you'll be surprised at how reasonable the bill is when it arrives! Afterwards take a stroll around Haymarket and do some shopping, before heading back to your furnished apartment in the city.
There are so many things to do in Sydney on a Sunday, most of them for free. Whether you keep it local or head into the city you will never be bored on a Sunday while you're here!
