Within moments guests can find themselves in front of the two most iconic architectural attractions in Australia, the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Fascinating exhibitions at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Australian Museum and the Australian Maritime Museum leave no doubt that Sydney is one of the world’s premier cultural capitals. If you’re not in love with the beach when you arrive, you can’t help but be smitten by the time you leave. With 40 pristine beaches to choose from, including world-famous Bondi Beach, you can watch fearless surfers harness the pounding waves or splash around in the gentle waters of a protected harbour beach.
