Is the view of Sydney Harbour a reason why people book return flights to Sydney?

Return flights to Sydney offer a unique view of the harbour, but for a closer look, try a harbour cruise, which will take you across the sparkling waters of the harbour at a far more leisurely pace that will allow you to really take everything in. You can see Sydney’s skyline from the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge to the beaches and more.

Whether you live in Sydney or you just cannot get enough of this dynamic city, flying will get you back to the place you love so that you can again enjoy everything it has to offer. Sydney is located on picturesque Sydney Harbour and boasts a thriving lust for life attitude, solid infrastructure, diverse attractions, cultural venues and incredible natural beauty.

In fact, Sydney’s Opera House, which is listed as a World Heritage Site, is one of the primary attractions in Sydney. Not only is the Sydney Opera House one of the top performing arts centres in the world, but it is also an incredible example of architectural creativity. The white sails of the landmark structure are set perfectly against the blue of the harbour while inside the building, its estimated 4 million annual visitors enjoy cultural performances, take tours or simply settle in for cosy drinks in the Opera House Bar with the majestic skyline stretching out in front of you.

The Harbour Bridge is another well-known Sydney landmark. The bridge has a remarkable shape, which has led to it being nicknamed the Coat hanger. Visitors can walk, bike or drive across the bridge, or they can climb to the top of it for a once-in-a-lifetime experience and an incredible view of the city below.

Another reason why people book return flights to Sydney is to catch another glimpse of Sydney Opera House.

Although many people visit Sydney for its landmarks and attractions, many more are simply in search of rest and relaxation, which can be discovered quite easily at any of its nearly 40 beaches. More than 100 beaches are located throughout Sydney’s suburbs. Choose from popular Bondi Beach, luxurious Manly Beach, or family friendly Coogee Beach and Wylie’s Bath. Manly and Bondi are lined with dining, shopping and nightlife, and the family beaches feature rock pools and netted areas along with playgrounds and other amenities perfect for those with young children.

Sydney has far more than just beaches and landmarks, however. Museums, galleries, parks and gardens can be found all across the city and its suburbs. The Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Museum of Contemporary Art feature contemporary, classic and Aboriginal art. Historic attractions, such as the Australian Museum, the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Anzac Memorial and Hyde Park Barracks, are all located in or around the central business district.
