Sydney is hands-down the prettiest city down under. But don’t let her beauty intimidate you – like all of Australia, Sydney is relaxed in a way that makes foreigners feel right at home, as any stroll around its fascinating multicultural hoods can attest to. Due to its shape, the Harbour Bridge is known to locals as ‘The Coat Hanger’. First up take a ferry ride across the impossible beauty of Botany Bay, passing the shimmery white ‘shells’ of the world’s most famous opera house. For lunch, forget about shrimps thrown on the ‘barbie’ – here the locals prefer a fashionable sushi bar overlooking any one of the city’s endless beaches and rocky coves. While the glass high-rises and sparkling waterfront scream New World bravura, there are plenty of glimpses into the city’s colonial-era past, most notably in the leafy parks and red-brick mansions of inner-city Sydney that are capable of offering cherished memories!
People visiting Sydney also prefer touring Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra & Gold Coast.
