Sydney

Sydney is a city littered with iconic sights. Listed from one travel guide to the next, Sydney holidays never leave you in danger of visiting and somehow missing the Opera House. Shame really. There’s all sorts of intriguing stuff Sydney’s got planned for you, if only you weren’t distracted by those miraculously glittering waters in the harbour. While you’re there though, do look out for the aboriginal whale carving. Lying in plain sight, its a treasure worth finding. Not to give too much away, but Sydney’s secrets just keep coming.

Hidden mangroves, secret gardens and an ornate station with a distinctly macabre history. That’s the Sydney you won’t find at the top of a shiny skyscraper. Not that we dislike an urban landscape. After all, in Sydney, that’s where you’ll find meals that make the 24 hour flight more than worth it. Though, word of warning, there are some plates that may well make you file for an Aussie passport. Then there’s the beaches. Over 100 at the last count. No wonder Sydney’s a city that loves a festival. Oh, by the way, do pop to the Australian Museum to visit Eric. He’s had quite the time of it over the last hundred million years.

A dip into the Harbour City…

Mardi Gras in February and March. The only season you really need, weather be damned. That said, parties aside, one of the best times to visit Sydney is in October and November. Warm, but not too hot – ideal for the weather-based Goldilocks among us. Pitch up in July for the Yuletide Festival. Unexpected? Yes, but this is Sydney.

Discover the real Sydney

Unfasten that belt buckle several notches. Sydney’s a city best feasted in. Not because you’re a greedy galah looking for Sydney’s biggest ‘sanger’. Far from it. Pizza, the most reliable global stalwart, vies for space alongside falafel crumpets. These streets are paved with every plate imaginable.

In a city where even one of the secret gardens is home to living, breathing, water dragons, a little inside information goes a long way. We’re not going to spoil Sydney for you. After all, a secret you discover yourself is worth ten we’ll send your way. But we will point you in the right direction.

While everyone’s climbing the harbour bridge or poking about in the Opera House, you’ll be occupied elsewhere. Sure you’ll tick off the iconic sights, it would be rude not to. But we’ll not let you travel all this way without seeing the Sydney few travellers ever stumble upon.

More of the Australia

Adventures here lead you from the vast to the genuinely unimaginable. A sun-baked continent is the last place you’d expect to ski. Or marvel at a giant pineapple. But that’s Australia’s unmistakable charm. Drive into the outback, scamper in cities or just enjoy some of the world’s best waves. The Opera House and architecture might be fascinating, but it’s the indigenous and ancient Australia that’s the real draw.
