It's hard not to fall in love with confident, cosmopolitan Sydney; it's Australia's oldest and largest city, and its most familiar. You'll have three days here to explore the sights of the famous harbour, home to the iconic Harbour Bridge, botanic gardens and the shimmering sails of the Opera House. But don't stop there. 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.
