Sydney, iconic cityscapes
Aussie land, Australia
Sydney, capital of New South Wales and one of Australia's largest cities, is best known for its harbourfront Opera House, with a distinctive sail-like design. Massive Darling Harbour and Circular Quay are hubs of waterside life, with the towering, arched Harbour Bridge and esteemed Royal Botanic Gardens nearby. Sydney Tower’s 268m glass viewing platform, the Skywalk, offers 360-degree views of the city, harbour and suburbs.
If you enjoy surfing or coastal walks, head to Palm Beach on Sydney’s northern beaches for great surf and easy walks along the beach to Barrenjoey Lighthouse. Palm Beach wharf makes the perfect fishing spot for the kids and you can all unwind at a waterside cafe.
Events at Sydney Olympic Park
Sydney Olympic Park is a major sporting and entertainment venue situated in the city’s west, an easy ferry ride or train trip away from the city centre. Redeveloped for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, the precinct may be synonymous with sports and large scale events, but it also boasts plenty of nature, family-friendly and dining experiences.
The Royal National Park
This historic national park is Australia's oldest, is National Heritage Listed and is easily accessible by car or the ferry from Cronulla to Bundeena. With more than 100 km of walking trails for you to enjoy, take in the magnificent cliff-top views from the 26 km Coast Track, or you can take the Forest Island loop walk through cool valleys thick with rainforest.
