The How-To; Shop, Eat, Dine & Play in Sydney
Listen up, because the 'Hello Sydney!' Tourist program has an exciting new announcement to make. A partnership already withstanding with Birkenhead Point, Harbourside have just teamed up with partner Fantasea cruises to bring you the 'Shopper Hopper'. The new multi-dimensional way to eat, shop, dine and play in some of Sydney's top tourist and local attractions.

It is a ferry service that runs between Circular Quay, Harbourside Shopping Centre in Darling Harbour and Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre in Drummoyne. For only $10 you are able to purchase your ferry ticket and head to any of these destinations mentioned above at a fraction of the time it would take you to drive. Nearly cutting your transportation time in half, the ferry service is an amazing tool for daily commuters working in retail, hospitality and the service industries who work in these well-known areas. It is set to be an amazing new installation as well to ignite more tourist activity in Sydney. The announcement of the 'Hello Sydney!' card is sure to be a big bit as well, but you can read all the fine print and details towards the end of the article.

Why Should You Try It?
Not only is this an amazing innovation to assist all our shopping needs but it will also give you a tourist's eye view of Sydney. One of my favourite quotes of all time is by G. K. Chesterton and he says that "The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land", and thanks to the Shopper Hopper you are able to be like Chesterton and marvel at the masterpieces of Sydney you may overlook in your day to day transit. The sightseeing tour of Sydney will include the Harbour Bridge, Luna Park, Cockatoo Island, Opera House and the awe-inspiring city skyline.
Presenting another great thing that our Tourism agencies have up their sleeve, is a card for non-Sydney city residents to enjoy discounts on shops, restaurants and attractions of Sydney. Unfortunately, residents aren't allowed these benefits but there's no harm in double-checking- click here to see if you are eligible for the FREE card. Nevertheless though for the non-residents reading this; enjoy discounts on over the 120 outlet stores at Birkenhead Point. Or get a bite to eat or drink for a cheaper price in Harbourside Shopping Centre. If you want to do some sight-seeing of Sydney as well have a look at this link to view all the amazing discounts you can receive.

So hop to it and buy your ticket today and experience Sydney like never before!
