DNSW Sydney Harbour, Kirribilli


As one of the world’s top cities to visit, Sydney has a vibrant buzz year round with its endless list of high profile events, iconic landmarks, popular beaches and stunning harbour. If you want to get a feel for Sydney, here’s a tip: head straight to Sydney Harbour, one of the most photographed locations in the world. Nothing compares with seeing the harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House with your own eyes.

Take a stroll along Circular Quay and soak up the atmosphere. As well as being a main transport hub, Circular Quay has some of the city’s best restaurants, including Quay, Aria Sydney and Café Sydney. Only a 10 minute stroll from the Sydney Town Hall, Darling Harbour is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious harbourside meal or experience the energetic nightlife.

As an absolute shopper’s paradise, there are seemingly endless options whatever you’re looking for. In the heart of the CBD is the Queen Victoria Building, dating back to the 1890s, this grand and beautiful building is one of the city’s premier shopping destinations. Further south you’ll find Chinatown, with Paddy’s Markets and some great Chinese restaurants on offer.

There is no denying it: Sydney is one of the premier destinations for events in Australia. The city ends each year and kicks-off every new year with a world-renowned display of fireworks, plus there are countless festivals, cultural exhibitions, days of celebration, and sporting events filling Sydney’s calendar.

Discover famous coastal beaches such as Bondi, Bronte, Coogee, Manly and Palm Beach, all popular with backpackers, billionaires, board riders and the body beautiful.
