Welcome to Sydney! It's probably the most vibrant city in the world. Endless discoveries for all to experience in this newly renowned Olympic City- Sydney. Experience the Australian way; from the outstanding delicacies, to thrill of amusement parks, to the adventure world of nature, to the marvelous shopping centers and of course, to the beauty and the spectacular of the city.

If Paris has its Eiffel Towers and United States with its Sears Tower, Australia has its very own landmark. The Sydney Opera House, sets by the Sydney Harbor is the home of Asutralia's art and culture; staging the grandest opera, ballet and symphony of Australia. Another must- see place is the AMP Tower Centerpoint, the most perfect place to get a compelling 360 degree panaromic views of Sydney.

Australia offers a splendor of nature wonders. From its stunning harbors and famous beaches to its magnificent Royal Botanic Gardens, the excitement just continues. A visit to Australia is incomplete without a visit to the wildlife parks. Both Australia's Wonderland and the Australian Wildlife Park offer such an amazing adventure and experience with the native Australian animals, in natural environment.

Whatever you do, try not to miss the world's greatest waterfront destination- Sydney's Darling Harbor. With fantastic view, the Harbor offers more attractions- Sega World, Harborside Shopping Center and also the waterfront National Maritime Museum.

For the shopaholic,there are many shopping complexes in Sydney such as the Clocktower Square, East Ocean Arcade, Glasshouse, Hunter Connection, Mid City Center and Piccadilly Of Sydney.

Getting There and Moving Around

By sea

Ferries are the best way to visit attractive spots around the harbour. The public ferries and high-speed JetCats departing from circular Quay are easy to get around. JetCats travels also to Parramatta, Manly and Taronga Zoo.

By rail

Taking a City Circle train and the Monorail allows you to enjoy the city attractions. A city Monorail links the Central Business Districts with Darling Harbour and Chinatown. The new light rail runs from Central Railway linking Chinatown, Darling Harbour, Star City and the Fish Markets.

By road

Roadways are generally well planned and that makes driving more convenient. The Explorer buses covers a circuit of attractions around the city, the red Explorer stops at the inner-city area and the blue Explorer travels around the eastern harbourside bays and coastal beaches.

Moving Around

Public transport in Sydney is quick, easy and inexpensive. Try Sydney Buses and Sydney Ferries' excellent Tripfinder, an automated search facility that gives route and timetable details.
