About Sydney

With its distinctive Opera House welcoming passengers as they make their descent over the Harbour Bridge and past Darling harbour into one of Australia's largest cities, be sure not to blink as you won't want to miss the incredible sight that is Sydney - day or night.

National parks circle the city and venture deep into its centre, with them they bring a diverse collection of native creepy-crawly's and stunning wildlife from oversized spiders to possums, flying foxes and cockatoos. At times this predominantly concrete jungle can feel like the real thing.

When night falls and you've had your fill of soaking up the sunshine on the beach at Bondai, Manley or others, there's a wealth of activities on offer from the vast selection of bars, clubs, brasseries and bistros to the latest pop-up or fine dining restaurant or the coolest little joint to listen to trendy new bands or watch the latest action in this sport mad nation.

To go upmarket, check out the harbour with its glitzy, high end entertainment, but you can be just as welcome in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt in many other parts of the city that offer just as much on a more casual level.

Everything is bigger, better and more brash in Sydney, thats why the top foodies, models, actors and architects flock here to make their mark. Its in your face and city where anything goes and everything does.

From January, temperatures average in the mid-twenties, and as the cooler winter sets in these drop into the mid-teens though record highs have been know to far exceed 35°C or even 40°C.

Following the Declaration of Independence, Britain needed a new penal colony and started sending its convicts to Australia. How things have changed. Swap drizzly England for sunny Sydney and book your next trip now.
