Enjoy Sydney mate, Itís been a few years since I was up there but the Cricketers Arms and Shakespeare Hotel are skate-friendly pubs and the Vans video will get you stoked for some spots.

Plus you can spend summer posted up at some mad beaches. Sydney girls are ridiculous too.

Melbourne isnít quite out of its CoViD slumber yet, so the city isnít itís usual vibe (which hurts me to say) but get down here when you can.

Congratulations on your uni offer.

Sydney is a beautiful city and I'm sure you will enjoy living there.

Second the Cricketers Arms as being a good pub. Most of the inner suburban areas are nice to visit and walk around- Redfern, Surry Hills etc.

White Rabbit is a cool art gallery focusing on Chinese contemporary art. I always try and visit when I'm in Sydney.

Make sure you get a car and head out to the Blue Mountains at some point whilst you're there.

Enjoy!

We may not know what skateboarding is

Smelbourne has riverside and box hill is a bit further away

Not to nitpick but thereís a good dozen parks split between all directions between these two examples

Sydney is great city (albeit expensive) and I really enjoyed my time at Sydney uni; I was doing some credits there during my degree at UTS. Blue mountains are always good for a weekend getaway and as someone else mentioned, youíve got lots of cool beaches. Catch the ferry over to Manly, thereís lots of good skateparks on the northern beaches too. What I miss the most is going for bush walks Ö
