Five must visit attractions in Sydney, Australia | Private jet charter

Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales, located on Australia’s south-eastern coast. Built around a natural scenic harbour, the city is dominated by the steel arches of its Harbour Bridge and the iconic Sydney Opera House. Sydney is a hub for fans of an outdoor lifestyle, where sports and water-based relaxation are high priorities. In addition, Sydney boasts a rich cultural life and an eclectic restaurant scene reflecting its ethnic diversity.

Sydney Opera House

Sydney’s most iconic attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sydney Opera House stands sentinel on Sydney Harbour, looking like a giant pair of sails. The best views are from the water, so hop on one of the many harbour cruises. Once inside take a guided tour of this amazing building and discover the concert hall, exhibition rooms and cinema.

The Rocks

Originally home to the Gadigal aborigines and the site of the first European settlement in Australia, The Rocks is a much-loved entertainment and cultural district located on the edge of Sydney Harbour near Sydney Harbour Bridge. A fascinating mix of heritage and modern, the Rocks offers visitors some of Sydney’s best restaurants, art galleries, market stalls and cafes. Visit the Rocks Discovery Museum or join a guided walk to learn more about the history of this fascinating area which boasts more than 100 heritage sites along its narrow cobbled streets.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the city’s most popular visitor attractions. The steel arch bridge was built in 1932 and at its highest point is 134m above the Bay. You can drive across or take the train, but the most adventurous way is to meander along the walkways on foot, and join the famous BridgeClimb for incredible panoramic views of Sydney and the harbour. There’s a Harbour Bridge museum in the southeastern pier which has a detailed history of the bridge.

Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour area has been a strategic settlement for more than 7,000 years, but it was the arrival of the colonialist First Fleet that set the trajectory for today’s entertainment district. Now pedestrianised, Darling Harbour has much to offer visitors, including museums, exhibitions, restaurants, Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Zoo, the interactive Powerhouse Museum as well as an IMAX theatre. To escape the buzz, head for the tranquil Chinese Garden of Friendship with its koi ponds and graceful willows.

Sydney Beaches

Renowned for its superb beaches, Bondi is probably the best known and has an excellent surf and café scene, but Sydney offers visitors many more hideaways to sunbath, relax and enjoy watersports. Take time to explore Cronulla (reachable by train from the city), Bronte, Maroubra and Tamarama. A quick ferry hop away is Manly with its cool restaurants, shops and beachfront promenade. Head north to Collaroy, Dee Why and Narrabeen for more great surf breaks.
