Sydney: Introduction

The Cultural Hub of Australia's East Coast

Sydney Introduction Sydney Introduction Sydney Introduction

A clean, compact and welcoming cultural hub on Australia’s east coast, Sydney is Australia's oldest, largest and most diverse city. From a sun-drenched Bondi surf to sailing under the Harbour Bridge, Sydney offers a wealth of activities across its many beaches, bustling commercial districts and parks. Sydney’s multicultural hub offers countless restaurants, bars and clubs that make for a fantastically varied cosmopolitan experience.

Getting around this compact city is trouble-free as Sydney offers excellent pedestrian, bus, train and monorail links alongside a plethora of tours that allow you to take in every inch of Sydney’s cultural heritage and beautiful surroundings. Fantastic views of the Sydney Opera House and the surrounding bay are best viewed by ferry, a short distance from the spectacular Harbour National Park - few cities are able to boast a national park in their centre, even less with a setting like Sydney’s.

Another great aspect of Sydney’s location is its proximity to other fantastic areas of Australia, and hiring a car certainly helps if you want to visit the many quality attractions or places of interest. Within easy reach of the city are many beautiful beaches and forests, including the fantastic sights of the Blue Mountains and the wineries of the Hunter Valley. The coastal route from Sydney to Queensland is a popular choice for holidaymakers as it passes resort towns such as Byron Bay and its string of pristine, often deserted, beaches as well as several National Parks that stretch through Australia’s largest ski-fields, the Snowy Mountains. So whether it's for a few days or an extended break, Sydney provides everything to fill active and engaging days and vibrant and intense nights.
