Sydney offers a unique getaway, not to be found anywhere else in the world.
Close to wilderness, koalas and kangaroos, home to the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, long sandy beaches, great dining and a beautiful harbour.
Of course, there is much more to Sydney than the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. From Bondi Beach to the Blue Mountains, the historical to hi tech, flora and wildlife. Discover more about places of interest - see Sydney Attractions.
The start of Australian History began in Sydney, in what is now known as the CBD, or Central Business District. Places of interest includes Circular Quay for the Rocks and the Sydney Opera House.
Circular Quay is also a major terminus for Sydney Ferries, Trains and Buses leading to other parts of greater Sydney. More on Sydney Central CBD.
Bondi Beach is well known to Sydneysiders and Australians as the great Australian Icon. The golden mile as it has been called for many years, is the closest beach to the city but still beautiful. More about Bondi Beach.
The surrounding area makes for a spectacular setting amongst the sandstone cliffs and can be explored all the way to lesser known and scenic Sydney beaches on the Bondi Coastal Walk.
Definitely a favourite amongst the many visitors to Sydney as well as locals, the Blue Mountains were a barrier to the early colonials for many years, but now is an hour’s drive or train ride west from Central Sydney. See The Blue Mountains.
Aside from spectacular views and great walks in the bush, in the Blue Mountains you can find Australian wildlife and colourful birdlife, as well as explore aboriginal culture and arts in their natural setting.
