Guide to Sydney

What to See & Where to Visit in Australia’s Harbour City 

Sydney is one of the world’s most visually stunning cities. It’s also as laid back as it is vibrant; creating a distinctive and inviting blend of exhilarating and easygoing experiences, from secluded beach adventures to waterside dining, dazzling nightlife and entertainment, breathtaking coastal walks, and fascinating heritage tours. 

The city is the first stop on many great Australian travel itineraries, and for good reason. Sydney’s bustling CBD is just minutes away from the golden sand of famous beaches like Bondi, Manly, and Coogee, and from some of New South Wales’ iconic national parks. It’s also the starting point for tours and day trips. After you’ve taken in Australia’s most recognisable landmarks, drive just a few hours out of Sydney to find world-class wines, fresh produce, and endless stretches of spectacular coastline, filled with natural wonders.

Why not take a beach break on the Central Coast and learn to surf, sample a bottle of red or white in one of the country’s oldest wine producing regions, or trace the footsteps of the first Aboriginals at Royal National Park? Whatever you decide, adventure awaits you in Sydney. 



How to get there

Numerous international flights fly directly into Sydney Airport, from hubs in Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East. From Sydney Airport, it’s an easy 20 minute train, taxi, or bus ride to the city centre.
