Two large buildings are considered the main symbols of the city. They are the opera house, which looks like a ship with raised sails, and Harbour Bridge, which is also an observation deck with a breathtaking view of the harbor. During the summer, everyone in Sydney tries to get close to many beaches, harbors, and bays.

The city's most famous beach is Bondi, a favorite spot for surfers, and Manley, which is located among huge pine trees. The second beach is home to wooden parrots, in the evening penguins sometimes appear here. Among the most notable places of interest are Blue Mountains - miraculous eucalyptus forests with wonderfully clean and fragrant air, Sydney Tower - the tallest building in the southern hemisphere,
Chinese friendship garden was designed strictly according to the rules of the garden design of the V century, Sydney Observatory, and the most impressive cathedral of St. Mary's sandstone.

Frequently Asked Questions by Travelers planning a trip to Sydney

What to visit in Sydney?

Here is our list of the best places to visit in Sydney:

Sydney Opera House
The symbol of Sydney, indeed of Australia! Designed by the Danish architect Jørn Utzon in 1955, its three hulls covered with white ceramic tiles sparkle under the sun, as if floating on the bay. 

Harbour Bridge
It took six years to build the world's widest steel bridge, which has become the essential artery linking the north and south of the city. Inaugurated in 1932, it remained for a long time, for the post-war immigrants arriving by boat after an interminable journey, the emblem of Sydney. 

Darling Harbour
Located to the west of the CBD (Central Business District), Darling Harbour, all pedestrian, beats to the rhythm of shops, cafes, entertainment, playgrounds, and office buildings. In the middle of this temple of consumption, a peaceful refuge: the Chinese Garden of Friendship, where one forgets time...

Royal Botanic Gardens
Luxuriant gardens where you can stroll under the songs of cockatoos and kookaburras before walking along the bay to see the sails of the Opera appear through the leaves of red cedars, lotus, or aloes.

Art Gallery of NSW
At the entrance to the Domain, 34 hectares of green space south of the botanical gardens and overlooking Woolloomooloo Bay, the Art Gallery is a haven of coolness and light behind its neoclassical orange sandstone façade. 

Darlinghurst / Potts Point
"Gay Darlo" never sleeps! Stores, cafes, pubs, restaurants, and nightclubs welcome the gay and straight communities. And at the time of the mardi gras parade, the atmosphere is in full swing! 

Paddington
Paddington, in memory of his native England. "Paddo" for the locals, has become a must with its Victorian houses with wrought iron lace balconies and chic boutiques. 

Bondi Beach
Almost as famous as the Opera House, its mile of white sand bordering the Pacific is the most photographed cove in Australia! From there, you can take beautiful walks along the coast...

Manly
A peninsula at the mouth of Sydney Harbour, straddling the peaceful waters of the west and the furious waters of the Pacific Ocean to the east.
