Australia 's largest city is, of course, home to the world-famous Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge - but it has much more to offer. Why not enjoy a harbour cruise, climb the magnificent Harbour Bridge , visit the Taronga Zoo ( Australia 's leading zoolgoical garden), take a walk through The Royal Botanical Gardens or just relax on the beach suburbs of Bondi, Coogee and Manly. With its vibrant nightlife at Oxford Street and Kings Cross, its harbour islands, its shopping, arts and music, Sydney will satisfy any visitor.

Blue Mountains National Park

The Blue Mountains National Park is just a couple of hours' drive west of Sydney. Here, you will discover the breathtaking scenery unchanged since dinosaurs walked the earth. Walk in dense forests, swim in crystal clear pools, and don’t forget your camera for the amazing cliff-top views! It’s ideal for walkers and those who appreciate nature in all its rugged glory. For either a day trip or a longer stay, this really is the Australian countryside at its best.

Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley wine region offers the visitor wine-tastings, fine food and comfortable guesthouses in an area of lush natural beauty. Explore by hot-air balloon, by horse-drawn carriage, by bike or on foot - and make a short detour to Barrington Tops, a pristine area of rugged mountains and gorges, waterfalls, dense rainforests and walking trails. The Hunter Valley is the perfect place to relax and unwind for a few days after the hustle and bustle of Sydney.

Broken Hill

Known as ‘The Silver City’, Broken Hill is a working mining town, and is extremely popular with artists, film-makers and of course tourists! During your stay you will get an insight into authentic Outback life, with its colonial mansions, pubs and even a Flying Doctor station. Surrounding the town are some fascinating Outback national parks, such as Mootwingee National Park where you can see ancient rock art, or Kinchega National Park with its dunes and rich bird life.
