The Harbour City

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.

And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Tamarama Beach, get engrossed in the history at Sydney Jewish Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Clovelly Beach, and view the masterpieces at Australian Centre for Photography.
