Sydney is often the first sight to greet visitors from around the globe, and the iconic Opera House is one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The city’s harbor is a hive of activity and surrounded by all the nightlife, restaurants and entertainment venues you could possibly want.

Sydney has a warm, sunny climate all year round, and its golden beaches beckon the millions who visit this city annually. Natural wonders stand side-by-side with spectacular man made structures. Those who call this vibrant world city home, love the city just as much as its millions of annual visitors. From the brightly coloured Blue Mountains bordering the city to the Royal National Park and Royal Botanic Gardens, there is always something to explore. Museums, entertainment districts, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, casinos, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House give you plenty of options from sun up until sundown.

Where to Stay

Sydney is full of delightful boutique hotels, hostels, budget hotels, motels and three- and four-star hotels. These can be great for an overnight stay or a stay of a few days. Furnished apartments can be good options for larger groups or those who are planning a longer-term stay. Unlike hotels, furnished apartments come with all the comforts of home, plenty of space for everyone in your group and often offer a more affordable price as well. Furnished Properties Pty Ltd feature preferred amenities like WiFi and can make your Sydney stay surprisingly affordable.

Once your flight lands, you need to get from point A to point B. Sydney is well-equipped with transportation options. Private transportation options include taxis and limousines, but you can also take advantage of diverse public transport. The city is known for its reliable public transport system, which includes trains and buses. Trains service the city from Bondi Junction to Penrith and Richmond and from Campbelltown and Waterfall to Berowra. Buses service the North Shore, South Shore, Palm Beach, Circular Quay and other popular Sydney sites. Water taxis can take you quickly and efficiently across the harbour.

Smart cards are available at both commercial and non-commercial locations in the airport, so you can quickly grab one on the way out of the terminal. You can also take advantage of the free shuttle bus, or the green bus, which runs every 10 to 15 minutes through a route around the city. You can simply hop on and hop off at your desired locations. All of these options can take you anywhere you want to go in Sydney’s brilliant CBD, but many of them can also take you to the outlying suburbs and beaches as well.

There is never a bad time to visit Sydney, but summer may just be the most popular time of the year for visitors to enjoy a relaxing holiday and a break from their day-to-day worries. Diverse restaurants can feed your craving for exotic delicacies from around the world, or check out the popular cafes, which feature a laid-back culture and the brew of your choice. Spend some time strolling through history at the Rocks, or take a few days to browse some of the world’s greatest artworks at one of Sydney’s many galleries and museums. One of the most iconic cities in the world, Sydney has a little something to offer just about everyone.
