Discover Sydney

Built around the largest, most beautiful harbour in the world, Sydney is undoubtedly the most exciting hub in the southern hemisphere. It is the largest and oldest city in Australia and home to over 4.5 million people. From the iconic, heritage-listed Opera House to the golden beaches stretching into the Pacific Ocean – Sydney is the place for everyone.

The beaches and harbour play a major role in the leisure and sporting lives of Sydneysiders – yachting, surfing, sailboarding, swimming, boating, fishing and water skiing are all popular activities. What’s more, the city offers an exciting variety of attractions, including designer boutiques, fine restaurants and chic bars. Many national parks and protected areas of natural bushland surround the city and the beautiful Blue Mountains are a short journey to the west.

The most famous of Sydney’s landmarks is the spectacular Sydney Opera House with its graceful ‘sails’. Celebrating its 50th year anniversary, the Opera House has become Sydney’s cultural centre, offering opera, ballet, drama and film. The historic ‘Rocks’ area, site of the original white settlement, is nearby, and this part of the harbour foreshore is a hub of activity for both local residents and visitors.

Of course, if you have a little more time to explore, there a number of options all within a couple of hours from the city. Discover rugged landscapes and charming countryside just a short drive from the city. The Blue Mountains are a stunning example of Australian high country with fascinating natural attractions including the Jenolan Caves and Three Sisters rock formation.

To the north of the city, the Hunter Valley is famous for its wineries and vineyards and is the perfect place to get away from it all and indulge in gourmet food and wine. Visit on a day trip or stay a little longer.
