About Sydney

Sydney Harbour Bridge

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's most well known and photographed landmarks. It is the world's largest (but not the longest) steel arch bridge with the top of the bridge standing 134 metres above the harbour. It is a must see attraction whilst you're here in Sydney!

Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is Australia's most recognisable building and is an icon of Australia's creative and technical achievement. Since its completion in 1973 it has attracted worldwide acclaim for its design and construction, enhanced by its location on Bennelong Point within a superb harbour setting. The design of the building, with its soaring white roof shell shaped sails atop a massive red granite platform, has been internationally acclaimed as an architectural icon of the 20th century.

Markets

Head to The Rocks Markets on weekends to enjoy a colourful market scene in the area's quaint cobblestone laneways. More than 200 stalls are packed with local prints, homewares, jewellery, leathergoods, arts and craft. Sample a wide range of Australian-made gourmet produce at The Rocks Foodies Market held every Friday which feature a wide range of tastebud delights, from Turkish gozleme to barbequed salmon, and gourmet sausages to mini cupcakes.
