The largest, oldest, and most populous city in Australia, Sydney lives up to its reputation as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Known as Harbour City, this vibrant global metropolis is teeming with culture, fashion, design, and gorgeous scenery.
A unique sail-like design makes the Sydney Opera House one of the most famous Australian icons. Take a tour inside or view it from a dinner cruise. Another impressive landmark is the Sydney Harbour Bridge, an essential component of the Sydney skyline. The Museum of Contemporary Art and the Customs House Library are also nearby. For a retail fix, nothing beats Paddington’s Oxford Street and adjoining William Street, where you can pick up pieces from local designers along with curiosities from local boutiques.
Equally awe-inspiring are Sydney’s famous beaches. The Coogee to Bondi walk, known as the city’s best walking route, showcases gorgeous homes and picture-perfect panoramic views. The Royal National Park, with its rain forests and spectacular coastline, is a popular destination for surfers and cyclists.
