Travel Quiz: How well do you know Sydney?

Tourism Australia has released its latest campaign encouraging Aussies to return to capital cities. Featuring Hamish Blake and Zoe Foster Blake, the duo implore locals to ‘get back out there’ and visit Australian cities. 

As we emerged from lockdown Australian’s did what we do best. We got in our cars and went on road trips. Far and wide, intrastate or interstate, we set to work rebuilding the economy in regional areas like the Blue Mountains, Byron Bay and the South Coast of NSW

But where we didn’t go was into our capital cities. These destinations have been hit especially hard with no international travellers coming and hundreds of thousands of employees working from home. Hotel rooms, restaurants and attractions have been left empty, and are ready to welcome you. 

So now is the time to plan a staycation in your own city, or take advantage of discounted airfares and head interstate. 

To get you inspired, take our quiz to see how well you know the capital of NSW.
