Sydney is a robust global city, and it is fast becoming the envy of many nations and a mecca for travelers. You must visit this Australian city once in your life for a hallelujah experience. Ivory white sands, coupled with lush natural landscape and vibrant ports make the city come alive.

The city may be the business hub of Australia, but that doesn’t mean it is all business and no fun. You can go on extravagant shopping sprees, play various sports, enjoy fine dining, and much more. Just hold your breath, because it is going to get crazy!

Places to Visit

The Rocks neighborhood, home of the Harbour Bridge, is in Central Sydney. Plus, this area is close to the City Centre. The City Centre is the business hub which houses Darling Harbor, a popular tourist destination. City West is a refreshing change, where you can hit a casino and go fishing. City South and City East are bohemian neighborhoods with an International range of cuisine options. Don’t get us started on nightlife here, check out the sexy club scene for yourself. 

Greater Sydney stretches from Bondi Beach to the Blue Mountains. The scenic backdrop of gorgeous beaches blended with pleasant weather makes this part of Sydney a comfy place to visit. Inner West is home to the Sydney Olympic Park that was built for the Olympic Games in 2000.

On the northern shore, there is greenery abundant everywhere; you can have a delightful time with your family in the parks and gardens there. The treasure trove of fun is Parramatta. From shopping trinkets to studying history, you can do whatever you want for fun. Sutherland Shire is a historic area; it is here that Captain Cook first set foot on the Island.

Famous landmarks include Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Darling Harbour, Sydney Tower (where you can have a romantic dinner with your love), and the Royal Botanic Gardens. For an Artsy tour head to the Art Gallery of New South Wales or the Australian Museum. The Taronga Zoo is a wild exception. You are not going to wander around, to spot animals; they will come to you.

Getting Around

Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport is the major airport in the city; you can take flights from almost anywhere in the world to there. Public transport is easy and efficient. An Opal card is useful for tourists. It can take you anywhere in the city by rail, ferry or bus.
