If you have just 10 AUD and you’re in Sydney, what all can you do with it? Can you enjoy anything at all, other than perhaps a coke? Here are 10 things that 10 AUD can get you in Sydney, and gosh, it’s a lot! Check it out!

1. Enjoy Drink And Dinner At King’s Cross For AUD$10
Enjoy the lively night life of King’s Cross on a Tuesday, easily the most economical day in this area. Be sure to be in time for the Beers and Burgers where you get a full glass of beer and a burger just for AUD 4. Have two rounds of that for AUD 8 and you have 2 dollars to spare, but with your tummy full!

2. Go Barefoot Bowling For AU$10
If you don’t want to rent the shoes, then AUD 10 will get you a ticket to bowl to your heart’s content, at the Waverley Bowling and Recreation Club on Birrell Street. Be sure to get there on Sunday for the 4 p.m. barefoot bowling session and bowl away for just 10 bucks.

3. Enjoy Fish And Chips For $10
AUD 10 will get you a budget serving to go fish and chips at the Barramudi Boy’s Manly Fish Café. For AU$6.90, you get a hot serving of Cod fish, or five pieces of fish for AU$4 or even a grand Queensland Barramundi for AU$9.90. Throw in another AU$3 and you get a serving of chips for one.

4. Climb The Harbor Bridge For Just AU$9.50
Eschew the Sydney Harbor Bridge climb from “The Rocks”; it’s tedious and expensive. Get the best value for your AUD10 and take the harbor bridge climb from the Pylon Lookout. 200 steps from the South-East Pylon and your AUD10 will pay off through spectacular views.

5. Experience Live Sydney TV And Radio For AU$7.50
Here’s a way to get behind-the-scenes at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. ABC holds weekday tours at 9.50am and 12.20pm, to which you can listen as you walk around Sydney. You can visit the live sets of famous Australian shows and visit a radio studio, where you could be picked out for a live chat by a 702 Sydney host.

6. Join The Poet Night At Glebe For AU$10
The Friend-in-Hand pub in Glebe is a cool hangout on regular days, but on the WordinHand poetry night, it’s open floor for wannabe poets to grab the mike and articulate their bit. There are other fun specialty club nights too, such as the Crab Racing night on Wednesday and Life Drawing Classes on Mondays.

7. Get The Best Of Sydney Sights For AUD$10
Buy a Super-voucher day pass for the Sydney Monorail for AUD 10 and explore the city. You can get on and off any number of times and enjoy unlimited travel. The Monorail starts at Darling Park. You can also download a Sydney walking tour guide for AU$9.95 on your iPod and use it to walk around the city.

8. Grab An Italian Icecream For AUD $10
Enjoy freshly made gourmet Italian-style ice cream at the Gelato Messina in Darlinghurst. Enjoy any flavor of your choice from the 40 flavors of gelato, including cassata, apple pie, blood orange and yoghurt for just AUD 10.

9. Take The Manly Ferry
Spend your AUD 10 on a trip to Manly on the Manly Ferry, north east of Sydney. Here you’ll find some excellent beaches for great surfing and lounging. The Manly Ferry is a 30 minute scenic sail across the picturesque Sydney Harbor, where you can get fabulous views of the Sydney Harbor, Sydney’s Coastal National Parks, the Harbor Bridge and the Royal Opera House.

10. Check Out Cute Possums For AU$11
Visit the Centennial Park during twilight to check out cute possums. The entry fee is $11 and you get to roam the entire park and enjoy all its sights for free. Take plenty of pictures of the cute possums following cues from forest rangers.
