Grand spectrum of iconic delights
Your exploration of Sydney should start at the Rocks, Australia's oldest city dating back to the 19th century – housing a myriad of historic buildings. Another relic to see is the St Mary's Cathedral. For modern architecture, head to the iconic Sydney Opera House. Then take a walk in the nearby Royal Botanic Gardens, leading up to Mrs Maquarie's Chair. If you love conquering heights, climb up the Sydney Harbour Bridge and get a fantastic view 853 feet above the ground from the open-air viewing platform atop the Sydney Tower Skywalk.
Visit the Darling Harbour and also the Sydney Aquarium, one of the city's leading attractions and arguably the best of its kind in the world. Sydney is a shopaholic haven too, with the Queen Victoria Building taking the crown as an architectural wonder housing designer labels. Also shop to your heart and wallet's content at Downtown Duty Free, Grace Bros, David Jones, The Rocks, as well as the Glebe and Bondi markets. Get the freshest seafood at the Sydney Fiesta Market. For a day out, select your favourite amongst the best of Pacific Ocean beaches, with particular attention to the famous Bondi Beach.
