Few capital cities sparkle like Sydney. With a wealth of natural and architectural attributes, it’s no wonder this cosmopolitan city is a favorite destination for Australians and overseas travelers alike. Not to mention hosting some of the world’s most popular events such as Mardi Gras and the stunning fireworks display of New Year’s Eve on Sydney Harbor, there’s always something to see in Sydney.

Two of Australia’s most recognizable sights lie on the expansive Sydney Harbor: the Sydney Harbor Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Take a boat ride across the harbor to enjoy the famous beaches and attractions at Manly, or make your way down the boutique shopping precinct of Paddington to upmarket Woollahra and on to beautiful Bondi Beach. Wander along the cliff walk from Bondi to Tamarama and further to Coogee beach for coastal views for miles.

Visitors to Sydney can dine out night after night on first-run theater and musicals, world-class events and festivals throughout the year, or sate your appetite in Chinatown, the Italian infused inner-city suburb of Leichhardt, Indian flavours of Surry Hills and multicultural leanings of bohemian Newtown. Enjoy the carefully considered menus of award-winning chefs with water views, then toast Sydney’s beauty from an inner-city pub or bar.
