Aquarius (Jan 21 – Feb 19)
You’re a deep thinker and enjoy doing things that are a little quirkier than the average traveller, while also staying social. For you, it’s time to take a walk on the dark side. Book yourself into a True Crime Walking Tour through the cobblestoned streets of The Rocks. Here, you’ll get a bloody glimpse into Sydney’s past, revealing the hidden secrets and mysteries of the city’s (former) most violent neighbourhood. Thirsty for more? Murders Most Foul offer up a True Crime & Pubs Walking Tour of Surry Hills, where you can discover murders, alleyways and the coolest old pubs in Surry Hills.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Happiest in water and connecting with the nature around you, you’ll love one of Eco Treasures’ guided experiences. Explore the pristine Ku-Ring-Gai National Park on a paddleboard or kayak safari. Over two hours, you’ll peacefully traverse through the waters of this stunning national park – the fifth largest in the world! Alternatively, book yourself into a two-hour snorkelling tour to discover Manly’s underwater world.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The adventurer in you thrives off of physical challenges, and you have a curiosity to explore new and lesser-known experiences. It’s natural for you to live life to the fullest, so an abseiling or canyoning adventure in the Blue Mountains with High And Wild is the one for you!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
You’re drawn to nature’s wonderland, and when it comes to appreciating the beauty of the great outdoors, you certainly win. Mix this in with food and wine, and you are one happy Taurus! That’s why for you in 2022, the Hunter Valley is calling. There are many one-day wine tour operators that will pick you up from Sydney and drop you back at the end of the day. Or if you prefer to self-drive, make sure to visit Audrey Wilkinson (for 360º vineyard views) and Krinklewood (with its dreamy, French countryside setting).
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Explorer, curious thinker, and party-lover. Gemini, you love to experience a bit of everything! Your willingness to embrace variety leads your chosen Sydney activity to a day trip at the Royal National Park. The second oldest national park in the world, here you can take the Jibbon Aboriginal Carvings Walk to witness 1000-year old Aboriginal artwork engraved into stone. It’s one of Sydney’s best-preserved Aboriginal rock art sites! You may also like to explore Eagle Rock and Curracurrong Falls, Wedding Cake Rock, or part of the Coast Track. When it’s time to go back to Sydney, satisfy your social cravings, and spend the night partying it up at Side Bar.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
As someone who loves being by the water, there’s no question you’re going to love Sydney! Throw in some secret beaches and good food, and you’re set for a ripper. That’s why you need to add a day in Manly to your 2022 travel list. Hop on board the Manly ferry from Circular Quay and soak in that sweet Sydney air. Hide away under the sun at some of the area’s hidden beaches, including Collins Flat Beach and Store Beach (the latter is accessible only by kayak which you can hire). After a day by the sea, grab a bite to eat at Wharf Bar with its waterfront views.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
A holiday spent basking in the sun is what 2022 has in store for you. Your cheerful personality trait lends itself to days spent by the best of Sydney’s incredible beaches and pools, where there’s always fun to be had. Ready to swim your way around the city? Experience the brilliance of the Bronte Baths (perfect for a sunrise dip), Maccallum Pool and Milk Beach (both of which have views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge), Castle Rock Beach (for perfectly pristine water), and Coogee Beach (with a tonne of eateries and bars nearby).
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
2022 is your time to unwind and relax. Fortunately, Sydney has the perfect place for you to rejuvenate, and that place is Bondi Beach. Take to nature with the Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk, an absolute must-do trail which wraps around the glistening coast. Bondi has a huge number of nutritious eateries to tuck into afterwards. Try Lox Stock & Barrel, Cali Press, and Harry’s Bondi. Or, opt for the celebrated Bondi Markets where fresh produce and gourmet eats flaunt the stalls on Saturdays. To top off your stress-free time in Bondi, while away the rest of the day in Gertrude & Alice Bookstore – a much-loved institution with a quirky charm and rich literary history.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Finding that balance between mind, body and soul is what you do best. Ever the appreciator of the more arty and musical experiences, you’ll want to book yourself into Buddha Bar this year. Immerse yourself in a multi-sensory holistic experience that combines world music, art, science, mindfulness, movement and entertainment. Whether choosing the Cacao Ceremony (with its corresponding ecstatic dance journey), the Oxytocin Conscious Club night experience, or anything that lies between, get ready to explore the senses.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 22)
Prepare your inner fact-finder for a mysterious Sydney adventure that you didn’t see coming. Tread the path of haunted souls at Sydney’s Quarantine Station… one of Sydney’s most haunted sites. Stories of ghosts and paranormal occurrences have surrounded Q-Station throughout history, and lucky for you, there are tours where you can experience it for yourself. Once night falls, grab a lantern and join the 2.5 hour Ghostly Encounter Tour. Or for a truly investigative experience, take up the Paranormal Investigation Tour.
Sagittarius (Nov 23 – Dec 21)
Why, hello there wanderluster and big-time traveller! After the past two years, 2022 is calling your adventurous heart in a big way! We could fill a novel with what you should be doing in Sydney but let’s be honest – you love the freedom of having a flexible schedule and spontaneous adventures. For that reason, you’re going to want to base yourself in the centre of Sydney, to give you the greatest freedom of moving throughout the city and beyond. See it all on an epic road trip, take the train from Central Station to Kiama so you can throw shakas at Surf Camp, and experience the thrill of quad biking over the Worimi Sand Dunes in Port Stephens. And of course, when you’re based in the centre of the city, you can simply walk out the door, meander your way through the streets, and take it all in.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20)
You love culture and history, but also adventures in the great outdoors (your zodiac symbol is the goat, after all). This is the year to book yourself into an Aboriginal Blue Mountains Walkabout Tour. Travel back in time to become part of ‘The Dreaming’ and connect with the traditional way of Aboriginal life. You’ll pass through sacred sites, bushwalk through rainforest, and develop a one-of-a-kind deep knowledge of Aboriginal culture and connection to country.
