There is no denying it, Sydney is an expensive place to visit! Transport, food and entry fees add up quickly, so I thought I would highlight a few ways you can grab a deal save some $$$ by knowing where to find discounts for Sydney attractions when you visit Sydney.
Free Sydney Guides
First up, make sure you grab all the free tourist guides you see on stands at the airport, your hotel and tourist info booths. These guides, especially the official Sydney Tourism one, usually include a variety of discount coupons.
For example, in this edition of “What’s On Sydney”, there were the following coupons:
- 20% off Captain Cook Cruises
- 15% off entry to the zoo
- 50% off a Sydney Museum pass
- 20% off at several museums
- 10% off Sydney Symphony performances
- 10% off Sydney Aquarium Wildlife world.
They also have great maps to these guides that are worth picking up. The best ones are in the arrivals hall at Sydney airport just before you go through customs.
Shopper Dockets website
Most people are familiar with what we call “Shopper Dockets” – you know those coupons on the back of your supermarket receipts but did you know they also have a website. Current offers include a free child’s ticket to Featherdale Wildlife Park, which is a great day out. Just print it off. Keep an eye on your supermarket dockets for cinema and food offers.
Ozcoupons had some excellent deals on discounted zoo whale watching tickets. They also have some Bridgeclimb offers.
I am not a big fan of Groupon and similar sites because you can get caught out if you don’t take note of the fine print. However, the ones for attractions and tours in Sydney seem pretty foolproof. Before you book, make sure you read all the conditions carefully. A quick search today turned up discounted harbour jet boat rides or a tall ship brunch. Groupon offers are generally best suited to those on a more extended visit as popular offers can get booked out quickly.
