Sydney | New South Wales
Australia's most vibrant city, Sydney, is a flourishing cosmopolitan cultural and financial centre. Although Sydney is not Australia's capital, it is the nation's oldest and largest city, occupying 3700km of the country.
Sydney's urban sprawl is an immense natural playground bordered by the Pacific Ocean in the east, the Blue Mountains in the west and stunning national parks in both the north and south. With its temperate climate, it is possible to make the most of Sydney's striking surroundings in any season.
The major gateway to Australia, Sydney is undoubtedly a leading tourist destination in its own right. Featuring many prime tourist attractions, sightseeing in and around the city is easy. The CBD itself is a manageable size, with many people preferring to see the attractions on foot. Alternatively, the bright red Sydney Explorer bus takes in almost all of the major tourist attractions on its 20km route.
No one should visit Sydney without taking a ferry ride or cruise on the magnificent Sydney Harbour. Cruises and regular harbour ferries all depart from Circular Quay.
