Sydney is considered to be the most beautiful city in Australia and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. If only we could all afford to live there?

Sydney is situated on the hills around a spectacular bay, full of yachts all through the year. The most known landmarks are the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, which have been impressing the tourists for decades.

One of the best known places in Sydney is Circular Quay with the spectacular view of the Bridge and Opera House. Here is the central pier for ferries, which are an essential public transport in Sydney - just like buses.
A ferry trip is a must for every tourist in Sydney to appreciate the beauty of Sydney Harbour

In the evening Circular Quay and the adjacent historical suburb, The Rocks, are nice places to walk and have dinner or just a beer or two(?) in the pub.

Check out breathtaking views at the city from the AMP Tower viewing platform. Have a walk in the CBD (Central Business District) to feel the rhythm of Australia's business capital. To experience the city diversity, visit the best-known Sydney beaches - Bondi and Manly.

There are many more places with spectacular views of the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the rest of Sydney. I especially recommend Milsons Point and Mrs Macquarie's Chair.

If you intend visiting Sydney around the New Year, the must see is New Year's eve Fireworks on the Harbour Bridge. Be warned though - its very popular so you'll have to come early to get a good spot for the best view and a nice picnic.

Great Site


Fantastic site! I like the photos of Sydney and Canberra. I felt the same about Canberra, though the Aboriginal Embassy was worth visiting!
