Something Special in Sydney
Take a trip Down Under to Australia’s gateway state, New South Wales, home to the iconic city of Sydney. With its picturesque harbor and stunning beaches blending intoxicatingly with a world-class, bustling city, Sydney is the perfect snapshot of Australia. With the iconic Opera House alongside the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the city will impress you with its overwhelming views and skyline.

With the city’s neighborhoods, beaches and famous landmarks offering a fascinating taste of quintessential Aussie lifestyle, Sydney has much to offer its visitors by way of exciting new adventures. An exhilarating Bridge Climb shows amazing views of the city and harbor. Take to the waves, Aussie style, with a surfing lesson on one of the world’s most renowned beaches, Bondi. Get intimate with Sydney on a walking tour of The Rocks, a visit to the Fish Market, or dinner at one of the city’s famed restaurants. Visitors can also indulge in a memorable cruise along Sydney Harbour onboard a luxury yacht with a glass of fine Australian wine–the ultimate way to wind down any Sydney day.

For something special, visit Sydney between May and June, when colored lights illuminate the city during Vivid Sydney. A city-wide spectacular where neighborhoods light up at night, this interactive festival has become a highlight for locals and visitors alike. A real treat is watching the Opera House’s changing colors and textures from the harbor, a show unlike any other in the world.
