Sydney Travel Info
A bustling city surrounded by beautiful harbours and beaches – Sydney offers the perfect fusion of an urban beach lifestyle. Cheap flights to Sydney are available for booking anytime with Direct Flights.
The largest city in
Australia, Sydney rivals all the other major cities in the Asia-Pacific region. Where else can you climb up a national landmark, swim alongside sharks, and enjoy a nice glass of wine in an upscale cocktail lounge all in the same day?
The Harbour Bridge is a landmark as recognisable to Sydney as the Golden Gate Bridge is in
San Francisco. However, one can enjoy this national landmark in another way than just admiring its magnificent structure from the ground – you can climb up on it! The Sydney BridgeClimb offers two types of climbs: the BridgeClimb or the Discovery Climb, and can be climbed in Dawn, Day, Twilight or Night. At its peak, the Harbour Bridge is 134 metres above the Sydney Harbour and offers a view of the city, including that of the gleaming shell-like structure of the Sydney Opera House, unlike anywhere else.
Beach-lovers will have a blast in Sydney, as Sydney is surrounded by miles and miles of beaches. Bondi Beach is a popular spot, filled with backpackers, exchange students and tour groups. To avoid the crowds, head to Manly Beach, where you can choose to hike along the trail surrounding the beach, or for something more adventurous, swim with Grey Nurse sharks at OceanWorld Manly.
There is no shortage of exciting activities to do at night in Sydney. Head to the famous King’s Cross area or down Oxford St, where an interesting night is almost always guaranteed. Darling Harbour and King Street Wharf are also lined with lively bars and nightclubs. Sydney also offers a wide selection of restaurants, offering everything from Thai to Mediterranean to modern Australian cuisine. Try the Australian Hotel, a historical landmark located in The Rocks, for a taste of exotic Australian fare such as kangaroo and emu. Spend your last night at the Blu Horizon Bar at the Shangri-la Hotel, which offers innovative drinks, luxurious surroundings, and a fabulous view of the city from its floor-to-ceiling windows.
