Sydney

Why is Sydney the most breath-taking harbour side city in the world? Is it the stunning natural beauty of its beaches and accessible national parks? Or is it the instantly recognisable icons of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge? Perhaps it is the invitation to get out and explore Sydney beyond its icons that makes visitors want to return? Sydney is an ideal starting point for a visit to Australia and a familiar welcome at the end of a journey. Before starting out on the Pacific Coast journey, allow time to enjoy this vibrant city. Sydney has a diverse lifestyle ranging from history in The Rocks, dining in Darling Harbour and shopping in the city centre, through to Paddington's fashion and café scene and Balmain's lively pubs with entertainment. Climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge or be thrilled with a jet-boat ride on the water below. Relax on board a Sydney harbour cruise, or hire a yacht and explore one of many hidden coves that line the harbours edge. Sydney's award winning cuisine is an experience by itself, complemented by an abundance of famous Australian wines. Try the wide variety of seafood and fresh produce that you can buy direct from farmers at any growers markets around Sydney. Aboriginal culture is alive and well in Sydney with authentic experiences available through preserved rock art, museums, art galleries, cultural parks and tours. Events bring a city to life and Sydney boasts a diverse range of international events that are embraced by the locals and are a major attraction for visitors. From top cultural events through to international sporting fixtures, Sydney is a city without down time. Events include Sydney Festival, Sculpture by the Sea, New Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Sydney Film Festival, Mercedes Australian Fashion Week and adidas International Tennis. Sydney's shopping offers designer fashion, specialty stores with homewares, art and design, discount warehouses and markets with unique gifts as well as the chance to mix with locals. When driving north on the Pacific Coast journey, make sure you take the time to stop off and experience some of Sydney's secrets such as the picturesque Hawkesbury River. Relax at the small riverside village of Brooklyn where you can rent houseboats, yachts and small runabouts, but if keeping your feet on land is more your thing, take refuge at one of the waterfront cafés or restaurants where you can order freshly shucked oysters straight from the river. The Hawkesbury Valley produces 25% of Sydney's fruit and vegetables, and farms around Windsor have roadside stalls where you can try before you buy. The local Visitor Information Centre can provide you with a list of produce that is in season.
