Sydney is the business epicenter of Australia, but all of Australia has been designed for Aussie-style fun. A few hours off or an entire day can be enjoyed leisurely or without a moment to spare!
A first stop, of course, must be the beautiful Sydney Harbor. Two hundred and forty kilometers of shoreline surround the glistening water, filled with scenery, restaurants and entertainment. The area is filled with activity choices that could easily fill a day, from a cruise on a tall ship to a tour of the Opera House to a ferry trip or a Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb. If walking about until your legs get tired and then enjoying the view from a café works for you, this is the best perch in the world. From here it’s an easy walk or short ferry ride to the Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour and Bondi Beach; all great ways to ‘waste’ a day away.
Close by, The Rocks can be found, nestled at the foot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and on the western shores of Sydney Cove. This area is of great historical significance and is often described as “Sydney’s outdoors museum”. This old district of vibrant cafes, restaurants and shops has recently undergone a make-over, and is a great place to sightsee and enjoy.
Some of the best dining in the world can be found in Sydney, and the view(s) take the experience over the top. One of our Producer’s celebrated a birthday at Café Sydney, with a spectacular view of the Sydney Opera House, great seafood and an ample Aussie wine menu; this is a great place to try a local delicacy, Moreton Bay Bugs (a strange mini-lobster without claws!). The variety of restaurants is vast, and the locals love to help. Alternatively, take the time to enjoy the diverse selection of historic pubs offering everything from a quiet drink and a meal through to live bands, friendly people and DJ’s.
