The most recognisable building in Australia, Sydney Opera House is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the top tourist hotspots in the whole of Sydney. Take a tour through the graceful building to walk under the world-famous billowing sails.

This historical cluster of cobbled streets and cul de sacs are home to traditional old pubs, elegant boutiques, authentic cottages, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and market stalls. Over 100 heritage sites and buildings encumber the narrow streets including Cadman’s cottage, Sydney’s oldest surviving house which was built in 1816.
Luxury holidays to Sydney are all about the beaches. Bondi Beach is perhaps the most well-known, with an array of coastal walks, surfing, kite flying and coffee shops to keep you entertained while admiring the glorious sea. Manly, a 30 minute ferry ride from the city, is also a popular seaside destination with its wide range of shops and restaurants, ocean pool and beachfront promenade.
Sydney’s tallest building and highest open-air experience, the Tower Eye makes you feel as if you’re on top of the world with its 360° view of the city and its fascinating landmarks. The lift carries you to the observation desk or to the glass-floor skywalk if you’re feeling brave. Dine at the revolving restaurant, take an early morning yoga class or go to the 4D cinema while towering 250 metres above the city.
Featuring a variety of gorgeous trees, orchids, palm groves, ferns and vibrant flowers, the Royal Botanic Garden acts as a peaceful paradise, away from the noise and excitement of the city. Explore the garden with a free guided walk, cycle along the mountain bike paths, take a picnic and sit in the shelter to escape the sun or relax in the cafes and restaurants to enjoy a bite to eat with a view.
The oldest street in Australia and one of the busiest streets in the city centre, George Street has an assortment of impressive shops, high-rise office blocks and historical buildings. The Queen Victoria Building is an architects dream, with stained glass windows, elegant domes and luxury stores. Designer boutiques, jewellery shops and other high-end stores line George Street and would satisfy the needs of any shopping-lover.
