As Australia's largest city and home to the iconic Opera House, it's no wonder Sydney is often mistaken as the country's capital. Whether you're into history, nature, fashion or food, this city has it all.
Many of Sydney's most popular attractions are in the compact downtown area, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and countless restaurants and shops. There's also a large selection of museums and galleries like The Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Sydney, and the Australian National Maritime Museum. And for some fresh air, be sure to visit both the Royal Botanic Garden and the Victorian-style Centennial Park.
On the way out to the Eastern Suburbs, you'll find the world-famous Bondi Beach, frequented by surfers and swimmers alike for its big, warm waves. Another main attraction is Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, offering panoramic views over Sydney from its West Head lookout point. Then check out some Aboriginal rock paintings and cave art at any one of +800 well-preserved archaeological sites.
Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport is about 5 miles south of the city and can be reached easily by train, bus, and taxi.

“After enjoying the beach, you must eat at one of the many excellent fish shops in the nearby area.”
“Love the sport or don't go. Too big for great atmosphere. SCG or Sports Stadium better venues.”
“The hotel was right across the road I was showered and in bed while other theatre goers still waiting for a taxi”
“Great view of it from the botanical gardens, avoid walking over from Milsons Point if there is a chance of rain - it doesn't make for a great walk when it pours down. (take the train to Milsons point you will see the bridge)”
“Beautiful beach. Shopping and restaurants, but it all closes early so plan ahead.”
“Grilled steak for Christmas and the beach was beautiful and also had green space and grills. People very friendly. ”
“Since our Hotel was in this area, we had the chance to do a Trivia night at the local bar & won some local food for dinner! Nice. Lots to see in this trendy location. Food, music, and locals. We traveled early evening and walked. When the night starts, it is fairly quiet. But then the scene changes as folks dine & imbibe accordingly. Enjoy the ambience of tourists & locals. Many locals are from somewhere else too. Like the States!!”
“This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Sydney. Its filled with shops and restaurants--but the building itself is worth seeing.”
“Take the Skywalk don't be afraid--my wife was hesitant but loved it. We then went to the buffet dinner in the revolving restaurant -it was very nice. We took a late walk just before sunset so we saw the city in daylight ;dusk and night time(dinner) fro 80 stories high.”
“Beautiful structure, be sure to go inside to get the full depth of this magnificent building.”
We started a 14 day cruise in Sydney. We stayed 2 nights prior to cruise. We bought an Opal transportation card and hop on and off trams and buses, we were impressed how perfect transportation worked out to get around Sydney. We enjoyed eating at the Hard Rock Cafe and other local restaurants. It is a plus to stay close to transportation. With an Opal card on Sunday's you can ride on buses, trams, trains and some ferries all day for under $ 4.00 total for the day.
FANTASTIC city, citizens were friendly, very welcoming and accommodating. Diverse culture and modern. VERY clean and safe. Great restaurants…if you cannot find the cuisine for which you’re searching in Sydney, it probably doesn’t exist! Transportation options excellent (buses and trains are an unbelievably terrific value!). Sydney’s mix of beautiful architecture was absolutely brilliant…old & new side by side, beautiful and visually stunning. Beautiful parks and terrific views everywhere! Very family friendly and romantic too!
We liked the ferry area. There were several restaurants that we ate at. The food was good. We took the ferry to the zoo and spent the day there. A worker took our picture - he volunteered. We walked every where from the Holiday Inn, the hotel is situated in a convenient spot. There was a open market by the hotel with booths of handmade items the locals were swelling. One thing that you shouldn't do is convert US dollars to Aussie dollars. Use your credit card every where. Our Citi Bank Costco card did the job and converted Aussie money to American for whatever we charged. No carrying around cash.
Sydney is a beautiful diverse city and it was fun exploring it and using their wonderful public transportation. We took the train up to the Blue Mountains and enjoyed seeing the 3 sisters. Everywhere you go it is clean. People are friendly and helpful. We always got help from the locals about where to eat or what to do. They obviously have pride in their own counry and area.
Love the efficient metro system, very clean and on time always. Great cheap way to travel to and from the airport. Circular Quays always a favourite with its hustle and bustle. So many places to go to, Blue Mountains, River postman etc
Beautiful beaches: Bondi, Manly, Coogee. Fun ferry boat rides. Easy to walk around to all of the sites in town. Very friendly and helpful people. There is a great deal of construction for new buildings and rail line which is very noisy and disruptive when walking the streets.
