Sydney - one of the most sought-after travel destinations on the planet.And no wonder, Sydney has it all, a spectacular ocean-side location, a wonderful climate, a lively and unique cultural and entertainment scene, and a variety of charming character-filled neighbourhoods. Although Sydney is a teeming metropolis of over four million people, it still retains a small town intimacy and friendliness.
Summer runs from late October through to late March/early April.Winter in Sydney is often better than summer in many northern countries and some would prefer the winter months to the oppressive humidity and sweltering sun that are prevalent from the middle of December to the end of February. The spring months of September and October are sunny and bright. Fall is similar, April is usually wet, but May tends to be pleasant and relatively dry.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Sydney Harbour Bridge was the longest single span arch in the world.Below the Harbour Bridge is the phenomenally fascinating area known as The Rocks. This was formed out of the rocky spur that was the site of the original European settlement of Sydney.
Sydney's oldest house. The highpoint of the Rocks though is the ambience; just strolling through the streets here is a wonderful experience.
Sydney Opera House
The name Opera House is somewhat misleading, perhaps Centre for the Performing Arts would be more appropriate - as a plethora of musical and stage events take place here. There are five performance venues within, as well as restaurants and bars.
