  • Harbour City

    Sydney is known worldwide for the stunning beauty of its harbour. Board your private sailing yacht and explore the hidden coves only known to locals or take a seaplane to a remote bushland jetty and enjoy fine dining at a waterside restaurant. Take a ferry or water taxi to Taronga Zoo, or spend your day on foot around the foreshore, from The Rocks to Sydney Opera House and the Royal Botanical Gardens.

    sydney-harbour-cityThe Rocks is the oldest area of Sydney with a maze of narrow streets, packed with attractive sandstone cottages and terraces filled with shops, stalls and cafés. Sydney boasts a plethora of world class museums and boutique galleries, as well as designer shopping opportunities in the tree-lined inner suburbs. A great way to finish a day in this picturesque city is to climb the Harbour Bridge as the sun sets.
  • Beaches

    No other city in the world combines coastal living with urban buzz like Sydney. With around 70 surf beaches and dozens of harbour coves, you can choose from iconic surf breaks to a relaxed dip in an ocean pool. Take a private surf lesson, and stand up on your board as you cruise into Bondi Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world with its golden sands and legendary surf.

    sydney-beachesFrom Bondi, amble along or join the locals to jog the spectacular coastal walk to more fabulous beaches such as Tamarama and Bronte.  Alternatively, head north to popular Manly or Palm Beach. For a more relaxed inner harbour beach, beautiful Balmoral offers gentle lapping waves, waterfront dining and a stunning outlook.
  • Blue Mountains

    A mountainous region bordering Sydney's metropolitan area, its foothills start approximately 50 kilometres (31 miles) west of the state capital. The Blue Mountains is densely populated by oil bearing Eucalyptus trees. The atmosphere is filled with finely dispersed droplets of oil, which, in combination with dust particles and water vapour, scatter short-wave length rays of light which are predominantly blue in colour.

    sydney-blue-mountainsWhen Europeans arrived in Australia, the Blue Mountains had already been inhabited for several millennia by the Gundungurra people. Examples of Aboriginal habitation can be found in many places. The Greater Blue Mountains was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2000.
