The Harbor City

The state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in the country, Sydney sits on the Tasman Sea, along the southeast coast of Australia. Surrounding Sydney Harbor, the city has a rich artistic and cultural life: the iconic Sydney Opera House is not only a prominent feature of the famous skyline, but also a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Stroll through the streets of the city to shop, dine, and view spectacular architecture and heritage buildings including Parliament House, Sydney Town Hall, and the Australian Museum. Visit popular sites like Manly Beach, Darling Harbor, and Taronga Zoo for the Australian wildlife exhibits plus wonderful views of Sydney Harbor, or tour the city on your own via bike along Sydney’s cycleways.
