Location

Built around the largest, most beautiful harbour in the world, Sydney is undoubtedly the most exciting city in the southern hemisphere. It is the largest and oldest city in Australia which is home to over 4.5 million people. From the iconic, heritage-listed Opera House to the golden beaches stretching into the Pacific Ocean – Sydney is the place for everyone.

Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge to see panoramic views from the top of this Australian icon, visit the historic ‘Rocks’ area – the site of the original white settlement, or take a surfing lesson at Bondi Beach – famous for its golden sands and turquoise waters. There’s so much to see and do!

What’s more, the city offers an exciting variety of attractions, including designer boutiques, fine restaurants, chic bars and lavish department stores. Surrounded by numerous national parks and protected areas of natural bushland, the beautiful Blue Mountains are only a short journey to the west and offer sights that simply cannot be missed.

Sydney is a cosmopolitan city, a major industrial, business and commercial centre and is endlessly fascinating in its variety and beauty – make sure you make the most of what it has to offer.
