No trip ‘Down Under’ is complete without visiting Sydney. This beautiful harbour city has it all; excellent restaurants, fabulous arts and culture scene, close proximity to the iconic Bondi Beach and over 300 days of sunshine a year. It is not difficult to see why so many Brits have chosen to ‘up sticks’ and emigrate here.


Sydney is situated on the south-east coast and is the capital of New South Wales. It is the highest populated city in the country.

One of the highlights of this outstanding city is its legendary landmark, the Sydney Opera House. Take one of the organised daily tours so you can discover this World heritage-listed building, including a tour of the backstage area. If you can, attend one of the live music events.

If you simply would like to view the Opera House from its exterior, take the Manley Ferry from Circular Quay for a wonderfully scenic route through the harbour and to get a great view of this architectural wonder piece, as well the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city itself.

For those searching for a bit of adventure and breath-taking views, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge is highly recommended. Taking the tour at twilight will allow you to watch the sunset and to see Sydney light up for a picture perfect panorama.

Other sightseeing highlights include a visit to the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Taronga Zoo and The Rocks, one of the oldest settlements in Sydney and a visit to the ultimate surfers’ beach – Bondi Beach, which is about 45 minutes’ drive away.

Foodies will love Sydney’s world-class cuisine and restaurant scene and for those in search of nightlife, there is plenty of choice. You are sure to fall in love with this vibrant, vivacious city.
