Cosmopolitan Sydney is the largest and oldest city in Australia, situated on Australia's southeast coast. Its towering skyscrapers, iconic buildings and monuments provide stunning panoramas, whilst its year round climate of blue skies and sunshine coupled with a famously laid-back attitude make it a popular destination for visitors on trips to Sydney of all ages. Sydney's colourful history began in the area now known as The Rocks, where Captain Arthur Phillip established the first British colony in 1788. The city also has a rich array of cultural offerings and a booming multicultural restaurant and bar scene.
During a stay in Sydney you can marvel at the city's quintessential sights, such as the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay and Harbour Bridge, or spend your day relaxing on the soft golden sands of Palm Beach and Bondi Beach. Art aficionados can get their kick at The Art Gallery of New South Wales and Museum of Contemporary Art as well as smaller independent galleries. Trace Sydney's past from aboriginal lands to the site of the first European settlement more than 220 years ago, then catch your breath in the Botanical Gardens or soak up the sights and sounds of Chinatown.
