Sunny, sophisticated Sydney seduces visitors with its cosmopolitan urban centre, strings of beautiful beaches and stunning harbour. Hop a ferry from Circular Quay to the surf mecca of Manly. Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the ultimate bird’s eye view. See a show at the iconic white-sailed Opera House. Have a wild night out under the bright lights of King’s Cross. Wander The Rocks cobbled laneways and imagine the rougher reputation of Sydney in days gone by. The New South Wales capital is unapologetically bigger and brasher than some of its sister cities, but its fast-paced glitz is balanced by a sun-drenched, outdoor lifestyle. Whether you join them for a sneaky weekend escape or a longer sojourn, Sydneysiders know how to both live it up and relax.
