As Australia's largest city and home to iconic landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, it's no wonder Sydney is often mistaken for being the country's capital. Whether you're into history, nature, fashion or food, the city has all this to offer and more.
Many of Sydney's popular attractions can be found within its compact city centre, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and a variety of restaurants and shops. There's also a wide range of museums and galleries, including The Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Sydney and the Australian National Maritime Museum. You'll find some peaceful parks as well, in the form of the Royal Botanic Garden and the Victorian-style Centennial Park.
Venture towards the Eastern Suburbs and you'll encounter the world-famous Bondi Beach, loved by surfers for its big waves and swimmers for its consistently warm waters. Another top spot is Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, offering spectacular views over Sydney from its West Head lookout point. Aboriginal rock paintings and cave art can also be spotted across more than 800 well-preserved sites.
Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport is located around nine kilometres south of the city and can be easily reached by rail, bus and taxi.
