Why Kaplan English students love the Sydney nightlife

Heard Australian culture is laid back and easy going? True. Think this means nights in Sydney are quiet? Think again.

Sydney is home to everything from high-class glamour to welcoming backpacker inns, not to mention the famous shell shaped Opera House. Why not start your sundown adventures at Orbit revolving bar on the 47th floor of Central Tower, for aerial views of Sydney’s best nightspots and stylish cocktails. If such dizzy heights put your mind in a spin, try a dinner cruise around the beautiful Sydney harbour instead.

Once you’ve seen Sydney from afar, it’s time to start exploring. Take the Rocks pub tour with other Kaplan English language students to experience the Australian love of beer, then head to thriving nightclub Chinese Laundry to keep the party going until dawn.

Dancing not your speciality? Perhaps you’ll shine on stage at the open mic comedy night at unique pub, Friend in Hand, or even win its one-of-a-kind weekly sand crab race! If you’d prefer to sit back and be part of the audience, head to the Opera house for live theatre, opera and ballet from world-class performers. Don’t miss a night-time visit to the Sydney observatory either, to see incredible starlight scenes through a telescope or on film in the 3D space theatre.

You’re bound to have worked up an appetite after all this entertainment, and it’s just as well, as the eleven-course degustation menu of fine French-Japanese fusion cuisine at upmarket Tetsuya is a feast for even the hungriest diner.

The Lansdowne hotel backpacker hostel may not be quite as luxurious, but with tasty home food on offer for just $6 and live music from Sydney’s up-and-coming young talent, no one’s complaining. Warm and inviting places like this are just one of the reasons Kaplan International CollegesSydney English Language School students love the local social scene.

Like the famous Australian boomerang, when you leave Sydney after your stay, I guarantee you’ll soon be back.
