Scratch beneath the surface and you'll discover a city brimming with superb restaurants, quirky beachside suburbs, bustling markets, fashionable nightspots and stylish boutiques. Of course there's always plenty of golden sands to relax on. And, just outside the city limits, there's a stunning array of natural beauty. There's the rugged landscapes and native wildlife of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains along with the vineyards of the Hunter Valley, home to some of Australia's finest wines.
