    I enjoyed staying in Sydney for 3 months, its very similar to the hussle and bussle of Joburg but without the horrendous crime. It was such a pleasure to be able to walk around at night without being concerned. Awesome city.

    Sydney is a very special city. With amazing landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge it's hard to beat. The city also has wonderful restaurants, luxury hotels, great shopping and more to offer.

    Fantastic city, beautiful harbour views, multicultural in every way, and excellent restaurants and cafes. Public transport is very good near the city, but falls away as you move south, north or west.

    Sydney is one of my favorite cities in the world. It is at once both laid back and cosmopolitan, with beautiful beaches, awesome dining and world class hotels. The culture in Australia is warm and friendly. The kind of place you feel at home from the moment you arrive.

    The Sydney Opera House is one of the greatest spots to be, and definetly one of the sightseings to do/see while visiting Sydney.
    I recommend to do the tour inside the Opera House for $ 18 AUD, it is an hour tour, but definetly a lot of information to obtain about the Opera House.

    Sydney rules end of. From the beautiful beaches to the city parklands, the huge array of restaurants in every imaginable cuisine, the friendly people, the cultural enclaves, harbour views and cliff walks, Sydney has it all.

    I loved living in Kirribilli, which is on the North side of the harbour. Fantastic views, people, businesses, and lifestyle. I highly recommend staying in this area.

    Sydney is one city known for its relax and care-free style. Unless you're in the busy CBD (central business district) you'd never imagine that anyone works here. Surfboards, beaches, bikes, coffee shops, Sydney's got it made!

    And once the sun goes down, people don't. Wether you are observing the elegant views of Sydney Harbor from afar or get up close and personal, the city is glimmering with a lively, exciting and cheery vibe.

    Attractions to see include: Sydney Opera House and Opera Bar, Sydney Harbor Bridge, Bondi Beach, StarCity Casino, CBD, Scenic View from Dover Heights and The Rocks. And if you're up for a little adventure head out to the Blue Mountains.

    One of the most beautiful cities in the world. This blends California culture with beautiful English Refinement and a dash of the Australian Wunderlust. I adore this town, its epic is so many ways, from the people, to the parties to the surrounding land. It's well worth the 16 hr flight.

    Sydney is aesthetically beautiful with it's seaside location, culturally enriching with its international population, and full of energy as a young city that is growing into one of the premier locations in the world.

    I love SYDNEY personally I would rather have seen Bennelong Pt unchanged and my 1 woman protest isn't hurting anyone but I have still not been to Darling Harbour the heritage they pulled down to build it is unbelievable surely they could have used more of the old buildings and wharfs, the galleries and libraries are world class and i can spend days in both.

    Sydney's great town to hang out for a couple of days before travelling onward into Australia.

Description

Fun in the sun and whole lot in between. You'll find it all here in the greater Sydney area. From the packed beaches of Bondi to the world famous waterfront Opera House, the classic stops in the region won't disappoint. But for those looking to roam a bit farther afield, there's still plenty to choose from. Head over to the Featherdale Wildlife Park for an up-close encounter with Australia's highly unusual native wildlife -- you might just get that pic with a koala you've always wanted! If you're on the hunt for a slightly quieter, more family-oriented beach, Balmoral might be just your speed. Or thrown on some hiking shoes and spend a day discovering the scenic beauty of the Blue Mountains.
