Sydney

Sydney is Australia’s oldest and largest city, and ranks alongside Vancouver, Cape Town and Rio as one of the world’s most stunning ocean-side cities. Its laid-back outdoor lifestyle and physical attributes make it the easiest and most pleasant of cities to visit. The people who live here are friendly and energetic.

All of its attractions lie within easy reach of the city centre. Sydney’s harbour is its natural playground, and at the heart of so much of what the city has to offer. It has a wide-ranging cultural life, dynamic food scene and vibrant cityscape of outstanding contemporary and colonial architecture. Iconic beaches and five major national parks deliver unforgettable experiences.

The Rocks is the oldest part of Australia’s oldest city, an intriguing cobblestone quarter of colour and character, located on the harbour shore.
