With 240 days of warm sunshine and blue sky each year, Sydney is Australia's favorite city with the world's most beautiful harbor. The harbor provides a playground for jetboating, sailing, swimming, harbour scenic flights, dining, fishing, climbing the Harbor Bridge and sightseeing at the Sydney Opera House or nature walks. It is also the perfect backdrop to many other of your city experiences.
But there is more than just seeing Sydney. Sydney is the capital of New South Wales, a state of Australia. So, make time to experience it all - you can safely train, bus or eco-tour to the majestic mountain ranges & World Heritage Rainforests of the Blue Mountains, endless white sandy beaches at Port Stephens, fresh seafood at Central Coast, delightful wine growing areas in the Hunter Wine Country, outback koala and animal farms, fruit picking in the orchards of Illawarra.
This splendid city spreads itself around the edges of its vast sparkling harbor to fabulous golden beaches. As Australia’s oldest and largest metropolis, Sydney is internationally acknowledged as an ultra sophisticated and dynamic city. Sydney itself is very international, with an array of ethnic groups contributing to the city’s social life. Between the museums, shops, dinning, harbor cruses, botanic gardens, beaches, and historic sights, Sydney is endlessly discoverable.
