As Australia’s largest city, Sydney provides an incredible diversity of holidaying experiences. From the steel-edged skyline of the CBD and the inner city’s iconic landmarks, to the sun-washed sands of Bondi Beach, to the nearby attractions of the Blue Mountains, there’s something to suit everyone’s holidaying style.
If you’re an urban explorer, shopaholic or just want to see some of Australia’s most famous attractions, districts like the Rocks, Darlinghurst and Pyrmont are the city’s beating heart. Walking along thriving boulevards will reward you with attractions like the Sydney Observatory, the Museum of Sydney, the Mint and the sprawling Hyde Park. On Bennelong Point, the ivory shells of the Sydney Opera House offer an amazing view of Sydney Harbour, and are the perfect place to watch the Sydney Harbour Bridge silhouetted against the setting sun.
If you’re a fan of the sun, surf and sand, don’t worry – there’s dozens of beaches on offer in Sydney and its surrounding regions, each providing a unique way to experience the beauty of the South Pacific Ocean. Bondi Beach is certainly the most famous, but there’s also places like Manley, Balmoral, Curl Curl, Coogee, Cronulla and Marley, each with their own character and accompanying set of attractions.
For those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the tranquillity of the Blue Mountains is less than a two-hour drive from Sydney’s CBD. The region is an alpine patchwork of national parks, threaded with dozens of tiny mountain towns that have plenty to offer visitors. In tourist hotspots like Katoomba, you’ll find some of the area’s most famous attractions, like the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Scenic World.
