About Sydney
Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales in Australia. It is on the south-east coast of the Tasman Sea.

Take a tour of the world-famous Sydney Opera House.

Sydney Tower is the city's tallest free-standing structure, standing at 309m high. At the top is a revolving restaurant and outdoor observation deck.

The best way to see the harbour is from the top of the Harbour Bridge on a Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb. There are lots of rules and regulations so check these out beforehand.

The Sydney Explorer bus offers a hop-on/hop-off option. The service stops regularly at Circular Quay.

Take a self-guided walking tour of the historic Rocks, Sydney's birthplace. There are numerous historic buildings, shops, restaurants and bars.

Harbourside is a waterfront shopping and dining complex in Darling Harbour. Here you will also find the Sydney Aquarium, Australian National Maritime Museum and the Powerhouse Museum. Also worth a visit is the Chinese Garden of Friendship, which features winding pathways, waterways and exotic flora and fauna.

Sydney Wildlife World is an exhibit of Australia's most exotic animals and plants. The park includes nine sample habitats, such as the Rainforest and Wallaby Cliffs. (The Sydney Aquarium is right next door and combination ticket deal is available).
