Because transport is a state responsiblity and some states (im looking at you Qld) like to charge you to buy their transport card. At least in NSW opal cards are free, any cost is given as credit. But not needed since you can pay with your credit card or mobile.

I have stopped carrying my Opal card ages ago .. just use my credit card ... too easy, and get all the benefits.

As for things to do, I personally enjoy going up observation towers whenever I'm in a new city ... so there is Centrepoint Tower (or whatever they've called it now days). Crown has one too, but its super small and you have to book it well in advance.

Speaking of Crown, you could also go down to visit Barangaroo, have a look around the park, get a drink at Crown etc. The Cutaway space below the park at Barangaroo is hosting Biennale art exhibits until 13 June.
