Sydney & Surrounds

Sydney is Australia's most well-known city and its cultural icons are symbols recognized around the world. Built around an incredible harbour, home to the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison and other attractions, Sydney is the ideal backdrop for major international sporting, political and cultural events, including the 2000 Olympic Games, Rugby World Cup, APEC and most recently, World Youth Day. A multicultural metropolis, Sydney is the gateway for immigrants to Australia and provides an absolute feast of choices for visitors and locals alike in terms of lifestyle, entertainment and activities.
