One of the most beautiful cities in the world, the city fans out from the sparkling harbour to iconic Bondi Beach in the east, golden Palm Beach in the north, the adventure capital in the west and Australia’s oldest national park in the south. The Sydney Opera House is near Circular Quay.
From summer to autumn, and winter to spring, the city is wonderful to visit at any time of the year. In the heart of the city are world-class restaurants, grand shopping arcades and other top tourist attractions, including the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium’s king penguins, dugongs and sea dragons.
The vibrant city shines all year with spectacular events, including the world-famous Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks, blockbuster musicals, brilliant theatre, thrilling sports, and Vivid Sydney’s festival of light, music and ideas. You can check out the all wonderful events on the website.
