Sydney - one of the most spectacular cities on earth.

Whether you’re keen to explore the iconic, sun-kissed beaches of Sydney’s north, relax on the otherworldly shores of Sydney’s east, trek along the dramatic cliffs of Sydney’s far south, or experience action-packed adventure in the city’s west; Sydney is a city of such diversity, there’s always something new to discover. Become an honorary Sydneysider and you’ll never want to leave.

Sydney is more like a collection of towns than a single, homogenous city. Each little region of the biggest and best city in Australia has its own unique landscape, its own quirks, and its own rhythms, and that is a huge part of Sydney's charm. This charismatic city has so many facets, so many moods, that it offers something for everyone.

Sydney is the kind of place where you can jump on a bus or walk a few blocks and you could swear you're in a different city altogether. From the bustling streets of the city centre, to the hip bars and cafes of the city fringe, to Sydney's many gorgeous beaches and picturesque walks, no two visits to the harbour city are the same, and that's why visitors return here again and again.

The city fans out from the breathtaking Sydney Harbour, one of the most photographed locations in the world, and on to the city fringe, a collection of hip urban neighborhoods clustered around the CBD's edge. To the east, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Paddington, and to the west, Glebe, Newtown, Balmain and Leichhardt.

Head to Sydney's North and discover tree-lined streets and epic beaches. Catch the ferry to the famous Manly Beach or journey further north to Sydney's Northern Beaches or the spectacular Palm Beach for some of the best walks and beach action in Sydney.

Sydney's East is home to the city's most famous beach, Bondi, as well as Coogee; discover them both on the incredible Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, which also winds through Clovelly and Tamarama beaches. A walk around the spectacular headland of Watson's Bay is also a must-do.

In Sydney's South, explore the bushwalks and beaches of the Royal National Park, surf the waves of Cronulla Beach, or kayak the waters of Bundeena. And in Sydney's West you'll find adventure, history and heritage from Parramatta to Penrith to Picton.
