Of all destinations, Sydney is
probably the most internationally recognised Australian city and one of the
great harbour cities of the world, with Darling Harbour full of famous
landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and more.
Sydney combines the best of a truly cosmopolitan urban lifestyle with the
atmosphere of a relaxed and laid back beach culture. As can be expected from a
city of its size, Sydney offers a huge array of things to do for people of all
tastes and temperaments – its location alongside the ocean means Sydney
provides chances for water-focused activities like jet boating, cruises on the
harbour, and simple beach-going while also offering great shopping and dining
