Sydney is Australia’s oldest, largest and most diverse city, a sun-kissed settlement that is characterised by spectacular scenery. This diverse city houses magnificent museums and restaurants, a vivacious performing-arts scene and yet more sublime beaches.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is an impressively big object. Sydneysiders adore their ‘coat hanger’. Walking across it is the best way to check it out; start at Milsons Point and walk towards the city with Opera House views. The Sydney Opera House is the city’s most recognisable icon. Its shell-like ‘sails’ shimmering on the blue harbour waters on a sunny Sydney day. Perfectly positioned on Bennelong Point, this curvy creation delights the eye from almost every angle and always makes a good photo. Sydney Harbour is the Essence of Sydney. Whether you’re sitting down to lunch at a waterfront restaurant, exploring a shore-side park, wandering the trails through Sydney Harbour National Park, riding the ferry to Manly or kicking back on a leisurely harbour cruise, there is no better way to experience the beauty of our city.
Don’t miss a trip to the Blue Mountains, the city’s hazy backdrop, with a slew of eye-popping lookouts, forests and quirky mountain towns.
