Sydney Harbour Bridge

No visit to Sydney would be complete without a visit to one of the most iconic structures in the city, Standing high above the Opera House the Coathanger is the largest steel bridge in the world, Sydney Harbour Bridge.

For an absolutely bucket list experience, experience a bridge climb, nearly four hours in length and the views of Sydney Harbour from the top are outstanding, from the Opera House itself to the breathtaking Sydney skyline.

Sydney Harbour

Possibly the most beautiful natural harbour in the world, crystal clear water washes up on golden sandy shores that is home to Sydney landmarks such as Sydney Opera House and the Botanic Gardens. To see Sydney Harbour at its glorious best, perhaps make your way to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair.

Past tourists rave over this glorious harbour and recommend the regular ferries that explore the waters. The Harbour is easy to walk to, and the surrounding areas abound with parks, restaurants and shops.

Sydney Opera House

Without doubt one of the most iconic buildings in the Southern Hemisphere is the Sydney Opera House. Designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon, it was a competition winner in a contest held in 1956.

Built to represent a sailboat, it features more than a million tiles on the four sails. The Opera House foyer is a delight, and features an outdoor boardwalk and a trendy chic bistro and bar.

Visitors must take in an opera or a concert to complete their visit, or take the opportunity to take a tour.

The Rocks

One of the coolest suburbs of Sydney, The Rocks gets its name from the sandstone pink rocks that form most of the 19th Century buildings. It is a chic and cool neighbourhood with quaint cobblestone streets and lanes, which abound with great pubs, top restaurants and entertaining galleries.

There is also weekend markets to explore, some featuring arts and crafts and some dedicated to food. And the goods differ from most of what is on offer in other markets in Sydney.
