Matilda's Top 5 Guide to Sydney

by Destination New South Wales on 31 July 2015, 16:07PM

Matilda The Musical has taken to the stage in its Sydney-Australian premiere this week. To celebrate, Matilda's Top 5 Guide to Sydney, inspired by Roald Dahl's beloved character, has been released.


Matilda's Top 5 Guide to Sydney:


1. Luna Park Sydney: The famous 1930s amusement park is a great spot for someone like Matilda to be an adventurous thrill-seeker. Whether riding the gut-wrenching Tango Train, taking a more relaxing ride on the Ferris Wheel or learning about the heritage-listed sites' history through an onsite tour, Luna Park Sydney is a favourite place for fun.

2. Observatory Hill: Matilda loves to escape with a great book. In Sydney, a great place to do exactly that (with a Roald Dahl classic!) is Observatory Hill, where anyone can read the afternoon away whilst enjoying the stunning Harbour view.

3. Sydney Theatre Walk: The Sydney Theatre Walk at Walsh Bay honours 22 legends of Australian stage and screen with commemorative plaques set into the paving stone along the waterfront. Someone like Matilda would love to take a stroll and learn about local performing arts talent including Geoffrey Rush, Jacki Weaver, Cate Blanchett and of course Matilda's composer and lyricist, Tim Minchin. Located along Pier 2/3, be sure to walk to the end of the wharf to get a photo with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background, like the young performers playing Matilda – Molly Barwick, Sasha Rose, Georgia Taplin and Bella Thomas – did recently.

4. Sydney Museums and Libraries: Matilda has a thirst for knowledge and loves to learn so Sydney Museums and local libraries are ideal places to visit to discover Sydney's rich history. The Museum of Sydney, Hyde Park Barracks Museum, Justice and Police Museum or Susannah Place Museum are full of facts about Sydney's past and present.  The State Library of NSW, the oldest library in Australia, boasts its own incredible story and is full of books from all over the world, so it's an ideal spot for any inquisitive visitor to spend some time.

5. Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk: Fresh air is a great way to recharge and re-fuel someone's imagination, and a trip to Sydney is not complete without seeing the city's iconic sandy beaches, rock pools and quiet bays. So Matilda fans should be sure to take some time for a stroll along the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk. Whilst there, keep an eye out for whales that might be making their annual migration north, along the famous coastline.
