Splendid Sydney

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 536

From its convict origins as the first European settlement in Australia, Sydney grew into the country’s largest and most exciting city. Take time to explore the sights of splendid Sydney.


Nature blessed Sydney with one of most idyllic settings in the world which is reflected in its large eye-appealing harbour and excellent beaches. This cosmopolitan city is not only scenically beautiful but, like most major cities, has an abundance of culture, history and venues to keep any visitor occupied for several days.

Our splendid Sydney itinerary has been designed to show off the essence of the city through 2 days of organized sightseeing. The first morning includes a walking tour of the downtown Rocks area where historic buildings sit side by side with the harbourside. Later, it’s a visit to the iconic and internationally renowned Sydney Opera House followed by the attractive Botanical Gardens situated close by. Afterwards, head to the southern beaches and stop at lively Bondi Beach famous for its surf and lifeguards.

The second morning gives an opportunity to see Sydney from a different perspective. Join a cruise which sails through the heart of Sydney Harbour stopping first at The Rocks, the Opera House then on to the far side of the harbour to Watson’s Bay, an attractive suburb. On the return, visit Taronga Zoo and get to know Australia’s indigenous animals such as the Kangaroo, the Koala and the unique Platypus.

Although these two days will give you an excellent idea of Sydney, to really get to know it, consider adding extra days and find out how much more there is to experience. Also consider several day trips to places such as Hunter Valley and its vineyards or the amazing Blue Mountains.
