A while ago, we wrote a blog on the best things to do while on a student budget. Since it’s the holidays, we thought it’s about time again to rehash that blog, and bring back a couple of things that we could do that won’t blow a hole in our wallets.
So many of us are dying to experience new things, find the time to go new places… But there’s always that one complaint that gets to me, that is “I have no money”. Honestly, that breaks my heart to hear it, and we all have days where things are getting a little tough. But I would hate to be the one who wants to experience new things but not have the money for it.
I used to be one of those people who thought that you’d have to travel just to be able to experience new things. Wrong. Adventure is everywhere around you – wherever you want it to be.
And so, thinking of our pockets, I curated a list of our very best activities under $100 that you can experience, too. If you’re still here by the end of this article, I have a special little something for you!
1. Manly Snorkel Walk and Talk Tour ($45)
An interpretive guided tour with an experienced local takes you around the Cabbage Tree Aquatic Reserve, allowing you to see the reefs and marine species in the environment. You'll get to visit both Manly Beach and Shelly Beach in this special. It's both a fun way to kick start summer, and to get your snorkel head adventures out. Great for both beginners and experienced!
2. Temples Sightseeing ($50)
Take on this day tour that covers six temples in a day! Designed to encourage mindfulness, it's a great way for us to take a breather from the everyday bustle and go somewhere a little further out. If you've always wanted to venture out and explore the temples in Sydney, this one's for you.
3. Sydney Secrets Big Spin Cycling Tour ($95)
