Enjoying the Sights and People of Sydney

SydneyIf you’ve got a trip to Sydney, Australia in your future, you’re in for a treat! This wonderful city in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) is one of the most amazing places you’ll ever visit, guaranteed! The scenery is breathtaking and the culture seemingly limitless.

The city is centered on the beautiful harbor, and virtually surrounds it. It’s a rare spot in Sydney where you can’t get a glimpse of the harbor. One of the most famous and photographed sites in the world is the Sydney Harbor Bridge. Next to that, the incredible Sydney Opera House with it’s gleaming white tiled roof formed to invoke the image of sails; fitting for a city so steeped in maritime history.

When looking for Sydney hotels, consider a stay in the area known as “The Rocks”. If the main purpose of your trip is taking in the sights of Sydney, this location is perfectly nestled between the Harbor Bridge and the Opera House, whilst still a short walk to the ferry terminal and the central business district.

Speaking of ferries, don’t miss the opportunity to make an excursion or two aboard the extensive ferry system. A short ride across the harbor to Milson’s Point provides access to fun and amusement at Luna Park, as well as a number of restaurants nearby.

For a longer trip, that includes some beach and surf, take the ferry from Sydney’s Circular Quay to Manly. From the Manly ferry terminal, it’s just a short walk through a great shopping district to reach the beach, which is stunning!

Getting around in Sydney without hiring a car is easy. The network of trains, buses, and ferries whisks visitors off in every direction with speed, efficiency, and safety. Sydney’s public transit system is among the best in the world.

Last, but not least, when enjoying the sites of Sydney and the rest of Australia, you’ll also have the pleasure of being in the company of some of the friendliest and most hospitable people on earth. Once you’ve enjoyed Australian hospitality, you’ll want more!
