Australia’s biggest and oldest city with a wonderful outdoor lifestyle and one of the world’s best skylines.  In three or four days you will have time to cruise the harbour, explore the historic Rocks district and take a trip out to get back to nature in the Blue Mountains.

Off the beaten track you’ll find some gems like Neilsen beach (much quieter than Bondi or Manly) for easy swimming, the upmarket suburbs of Rose Bay and Vaucluse with their lovely outdoor cafes and boutique shops and the Botanic Gardens which offers fantastic views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

There is a huge variety of accommodation options, but for convenience and comfort we recommend the Intercontinental on Macquarie Street, with fantastic breakfasts, just a short walk away from the harbour attractions.
