Sydney is one of those cities in the world that really does live up to its images and hype. In fact Sydney is a city that the camera can never truly do justice to. To truly appreciate the rich and diverse culture and ethnic blend, designer boutiques, fine restaurants, hip bars, lavish department stores, historic sites, parks, museums and landmarks, you have to go on an Australia holiday to Sydney.
The benefits of visiting this spectacular harbour city is not limited to the city either as there are a number of other attractions within a short driving distance including the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains and the world famous Bondi Beach.

Sydney is one of the busiest commercial hubs in the Asia Pacific region and is host to the Sydney Opera House and Hyde Park Barracks- both World Heritage cultural sites.
