Seductive Sydney is blessed with abundant visual charms
Australia's most cosmopolitan city boasts a world-class CBD shopping experience, niche finds in the inner-city suburbs of Paddington, Woollahra and Balmain, and a melting pot of cuisines and cultures in bohemian Newtown. The annual Mardi Gras parade and New Year's Eve celebrations are must-attend events showcasing all the colour and sparkle of this city that knows how to party.
Catch a ferry north to Manly to take in the laidback surfer vibe, walk along the cliffs from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach for breathtaking ocean vistas, and visit the world-famous Taronga Zoo with spectacular views of Sydney Harbour. Circular Quay in Sydney's CBD boasts some of the best restaurants with that million-dollar view, or explore Chinatown and Darling Harbour to sample the variety of cuisines on offer. Like the nightlife? Sydney has a vibrant bar scene with venues ranging from cosy piano lounges to rooftop poolside bars.
