Sydney,NSW Travel Guide

by our Australia expert Conrad Freethy
Conrad FreethyFrom the Harbour Bridge to the iconic Opera House, Sydney is a self-confident city that glories in its cosmopolitan status. And when you add on beaches like Bondi (Ed: there aren’t any beaches like Bondi), you have to go with the flow of “There’s no place in the world like Sydney”. The largest city on the continent and capital of New South Wales, it now looks across to Botany Bay, the original convict settlement. The Bridge is an engineering marvel that not only fulfils its main traffic purpose but acts as a New Year’s Eve firework ‘picture’ as well as, perhaps uniquely, allowing intrepid visitors to climb it. The shell-like Opera House is to be gawped at … but also offers outstanding international performances inside. The multi-national population ensures a huge variety of cultures (and great food), the surf / swim / dive / sail ocean facilities are unbeatable. Sydney is a fantastic business or pleasure venue – so long as you agree with locals it’s the best.
