Sydney needs little introduction. Australia’s largest city played host to the 2000 Olympic Games and has garnered global appeal through iconic buildings, brilliant natural locations and a celebrated dining scene.
Two of Australia’s most recognisable structures are famously situated on the banks of the New South Wales’ capital. Take a backstage tour of the Sydney Opera House or climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge and soak up the superb views.
Plenty to sea
Public transport doesn’t sound that exciting but catching a ferry from Circular Quay is the best way to visit a host of Sydney’s most popular destinations, including Tooronga Zoo, Luna Park and Manly Beach.
Bondi Beach is arguably the most well-known coastal area in Australia, drawing in massive crowds of tourists and locals alike during the summer months. Providing stunning views and scenery, the Blue Mountains border Sydney’s metropolitan zone and received World Heritage status in 2000.
The Sydney Cricket Ground plays host to the Pink Test every year in early January to support the McGrath Foundation’s fight against breast cancer, while the National Rugby League (NRL) grand final in late September is arguably the state’s most renowned sporting event.
