The jewel of the South Pacific awaits your visit. If one word can sum up a city, the word describing Sydney Australia is diversity. This is a city of diverse culture, a diverse ethnic blend, diverse shopping and diverse experiences.
Sydney, the"Harbour City"offers unique experiences to visitors, such as the unique Sydney Opera House, the fantastic Bondi Beach for surfing, the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains and much more.
Sydney is known as an international centre for commerce, arts, fashion, culture, entertainment, education and tourism. Sydney has hosted major international sporting events, including the 1938 British Empire Games, the 2000 Summer Olympics, the final match of the 2003 Rugby World Cup, as well as the 2008 World Youth Day. The main airport serving Sydney is Sydney Airport.
The approach to Sydney airport flying over the harbour and city is stunning. Once you get into the city there is so much to see and do. If you have a head for heights you can have a meal in the revolving restaurant at the top of the Centrepoint Tower, but for a simply unforgettable experience do the Harbour Bridge climb !! One tip though.....DON'T have too much alcohol the day before because you ARE breathalysed and will be refused from climbing !! Take any harbour cruise for fabulous views of the harbour bridge and Opera House, or take the ferry from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo to see the animals with the city as a backdrop ! Sydney is a vibrant, bustling destination that requires a couple of days to explore. If all that is a bit too much for you then just 2 hours west of the city are the breathtaking Blue Mountains, a photographer's paradise.
Sydney is my first trip to Southern hemisphere. Scene of city was awesome
I think Sydney is simply one of the most wonderful cities on this planet. Sure, it's far from all glamour, but Christ, what fantastic views, climate, the harbour, the Rocks, that astonishing bridge, the people, the ice cold VB in the Sun. I would love to go back here.
