Sydney travel

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.
