Top Sydney attractions

Sydney Opera House

One of the world's most singularly striking architectural feats, the Sydney Opera House has been an iconic presence on Sydney Harbour since its completion in 1973. Over 30 years later its value and uniqueness was recognised as it was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The masterpiece of Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the opera house took 16 years to complete. The decision to choose the unknown Utzon has been vindicated time and again, and as well as providing a great sight from the outside, within you will find no fewer than six world-class venues offering opera, theatre and concerts.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Not content with one world famous construction, Sydney Harbour boasts another in the form of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The through arch bridge has been providing an imposing and elegant crossing between the North Shore and central Sydney since opening in 1932. Rising to a height of over 130 metres above the water level and stretching for over a kilometre, the huge structure transports trains, cars, cyclists and pedestrians on a daily basis. But that is not the only way to get onto the bridge: thanks to an innovative tourism company, you can even climb part of it. The upper arch and lower chord can both be climbed with the aid of all the relevant safety equipment. As well as offering engineering buffs a unique view of the bridge's structure it gives a fantastic vantage point from which to look out upon Sydney.

Blue Mountains

It is easy to forget you are just over an hour from the centre of Sydney when you find yourself in the Blue Mountains, an idyllic World Heritage Site to the west of Australia's biggest city. So named because of the blue haze through which they are viewed from a distance, the seven national parks in the area have been a centre for rest, relaxation and enjoyment for over a century. Walking trails, cycle paths, caves, waterfalls and even a cable car are just some of the attractions on offer in this vast area.

Sydney highlights

Learn How to Surf at Bondi

This is one of the holy grails of surfing, and anyone who has ever thought about picking up a board has dreamed of a trip to this kilometre-long stretch of golden sand in the Sydney suburbs. But don't worry, it's not just for professionals: the difficulty and danger posed by the waves ranges along the bay. There is no shortage of enthusiastic surfing instructors along the beach ready to impart their wisdom and watch you tumble into the waves as you find your feet.

Check Out the Wildlife Along the Coastline

If surfing is not your scene, there is still plenty to do at the beach, including the two-mile walk from Bondi Beach to Bronte. At times clinging to the high headlands and at others swooping down so close to the ocean you can almost touch it, the Bondi to Bronte walk offers a breathtaking view of this coastline. Keep your eyes peeled as you go as sightings of the area's impressive marine wildlife are common; large numbers of whales and dolphins have been spotted in the area. If two miles is not enough for you, push on past Bronte as the path winds through Coogee Beach on its way to Maroubra Beach, the end of the line.

Find the Next Big Designer

In this vibrant hub of fashion, Sydney's emerging designers first find their feet in the hubbub of Paddington Markets. A network of over 200 stalls in the eastern suburb of Paddington, the markets are the perfect place to spend a lazy Saturday, checking out the clothes and accessories on offer and taking a break to sample the huge range of cuisine served up. Everything from barbecue and Thai food to coffee and cup cakes is available.

Get your Sporting Fix

The ‘Sydneysiders’ love their sport, and there's nowhere better to witness this passion than the atmospheric Sydney Cricket Ground. Over 45,000 people regularly crowd in to the stadium to witness the country's biggest sporting events, from cricket to Australian rules football.

How to move around in Sydney

Arriving by Air

Domestic and international flights leave from the three terminals of Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport, on Botany Bay. Beware that Terminal 1 is almost three miles from Terminals 2 and 3, so make sure to leave adequate time if you have to transfer.

There are a number of options when it comes to getting into the city from the airport: the commuter network CityRail extends out to the airport but can be busy at peak times; small mini-buses will pick up tourists and drop them straight to their hotels; the local bus is the cheapest option but luggage space is limited.

By Taxi

Available to be hailed down in the street or at the numerous ranks dotted across the city, Sydney cabs are a handy – if pricey – way to get around. Be warned, however, that during rush hour and weekend evenings, free cabs can be hard to come by. Also be aware that if you pass through tolls it is the passenger that pays the charge.

By Train

Sydney has a large rail network, which makes it easy to get to the surrounding suburbs from the centre. Various tickets, daily and weekly passes are available from stations.

By Boat

Offering a peaceful alternative to the hustle and bustle of taxis, buses and trains, a range of ferries leave Circular Quay offering harbour tours as well as single journeys to some of the best-known tourist attractions.

By Car

With plenty of beaches, quirky suburbs and the Blue Mountains to explore, hiring a car is a great idea, so check out our options for car hire in Sydney.

Promotion Sydney

The elegantly understated Springfield Lodge Hotel is only a brisk walk away from the heart of Sydney. The design of the hotel fits perfectly in an area full of great bars and shops. Complete with a charming Parisian style cafe and the Pink Lounge for a relaxing cocktail, the Springfield Lounge is the ideal refuge at the end of a hard day exploring Sydney. If you have exhausted the attractions of the Potts Point neighbourhood, the Sydney Harbour and Bondi Beach are within easy reach by public transport.

Looking out upon Sydney Harbour from an enviable location on the eastern bank of Circular Quay is Quay Grand Suites Hotel. From the balconies of the suites the view takes in Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Royal Botanic Gardens and the unmissable Sydney Opera House. Within the suites you will find a combined lounge and dining room as well as a kitchen armed with all the necessary equipment, the choice of one or two bedrooms and a bathroom with spa bath.

The Sheraton on the Park Hotel can be located on the edge of Sydney's green refuge, Hyde Park. The 550+ rooms are stylishly furnished and the large windows have a great vantage point over the city skyline and the park.

The graceful Grace Building is one of Sydney's most imposing structures and these days houses the Grace Hotel. Set in the city centre, the 382-room hotel also numbers among its attractions a rooftop health and fitness centre and a range of dining options with a cafe, restaurant, and Irish pub on site.
