Australia Sydney opera house

Famed for its golden beaches and magnificent harbour, Australia’s biggest city is as glossy as it is iconic, and a must-see for many tourists heading down-under for their next trip. Visitors can easily spend a week in this bush-fringed metropolis; hiking the national parks and coastal walks which edge the city, spotting tanned surfers at Bondi Bay and coral-rimmed Manly Beach, or wandering the open-air markets of The Rocks, a hip, historic neighbourhood lying in the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge. For those who prefer grunge to glitz, head to the breweries of Marrickville or to bohemian-favourite Newtown. There’s something for everyone in the Harbour City.
