Sunbathing on Bondi Beach, enjoying a show at the Opera House, dining with a view of the Harbour Bridge, embarking on a ferry ride to Manly Beach… there’s plenty to keep you busy on a bespoke holiday to Sydney, Australia.

Often referred to as the ‘gateway to Australia’, Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales, home to the world’s largest natural harbour and the country’s most populous city.

We recommend adding a good few days in Sydney into your tailor-made Australia itinerary; as we know all too well that the amount there is to see and do here will leave your yearning for more if you don’t.

Should you be time poor, a few definite highlights not to miss are a climb over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, first opened in 1932; a visit to the harbour’s famous Opera House for a classic tourist photo in front of the iconic building; a trip on the ferry over to the beaches at Manly; and a meal or two in one of the city’s finest, award-winning restaurants.

However, those visiting Sydney who are time rich should also venture to the beach suburbs of Bondi and Coogee, which are linked by a spectacular coastal walk; watch the sunset from Doyles on the Beach in Watsons Bay with a plate of the famed fish and chips; take the exploration of Sydney’s harbour a step further with a cruise, catamaran trip or a seaplane flight with a waterfront lunch at Cottage Point Inn; enjoy a visit to the city’s best tourist attractions, such as the botanical gardens; choose a day trip to Palm Beach, the setting for soap opera Home & Away; and peruse Sydney’s best markets and trendy neighbourhoods, such as Surry Hills.

Our Travel Specialists can offer further suggestions and experiences to ‘wow’ on your tailor-made Sydney itinerary.
