Sydney city centre
Circular Quay is a good starting point to explore the city centre. From here you can walk to the Opera House or head west to see The Rocks, a restored historic precinct. Here you can explore this intriguing convict history where Sydney began, with its cobblestone streets, sandstone terraces and winding streets.
In the centre of Sydney is also the Museum of Sydney, with artefacts dating back to when the settlers arrived with their prisoners in tow. Pitt Street’s shopping centres and arcades tucked into the side streets are ideal for a spot of retail therapy while you’re taking in this most interesting of modern cities.
Sydney holidays boast a delightful mix of cultures and lifestyles with world class restaurants around every corner. Immerse yourself in Sydney’s laidback charm - you'll never want to leave.
