Sydney travel guide

Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge really need no introduction, just hope you’ll be blessed with blue skies and get ready to snap those Kodak moments that’ll last a lifetime. Check if there’s any performances that tickle your fancy at the Opera House, or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, embark on a climb across the Harbour Bridge to afford yourself spectacular views of the iconic shoreline.

Take a stroll down George Street and peruse the multitude of shops on your way to Darling Harbour, a beautiful spot that seems to seclude itself from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Take a stroll around the waterways and water features, or visit the maritime museum for that educational twist on your afternoon.

Escape the suits by heading to Bondi Beach, and chill out on the iconic sands in the shadow of the circling helicopters. Manly is another great spot that can be reached from the city via a scenic ferry journey, and opens the gateway to the other side of Sydney life, which revolves around waxing up your surfboard and hitting the waves.

A truly international city that boasts a diverse range of offerings, there will rarely be a dull moment should you descend upon the Harbour City.
