Your Signature Experience Highlights

Sydney, Australia


The Sydney cityscape really is enough to take your breath away. Attracting visitors with its iconic harbour, glorious beaches and the stunning Blue Mountains to the west, Sydney hosts nearly half of all international visits to Australia. Life really is a beach in Sydney – this city boasts more than 40 of them. The glorious Bondi Beach is the most famous and the place to go to watch surfers catch waves. If you fancy a double dose of fun in the sun, take the popular Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach coastal walk – the stroll takes around two hours and features rock pools, secluded bays and magnificent clifftop views. It’s the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. If more active pursuits are what you're after, then why not enjoy a bridge tour of Sydney's iconic Harbour Bridge? Not for the feint of heart, these tours will take you to the very top of this 134 metre giant. You’ll see breathtaking views of Sydney, the Harbour and the Opera House. Taronga Zoo is also especially popular with visitors – here you’ll meet the cutest, cuddliest, most endangered and most downright dangerous (but not right up close) of Australia’s incredible wildlife.


The Great Barrier Reef

As one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, you’d expect great things from a visit here, and you can rest assured that you will not be disappointed! Larger than the Great Wall of China, this vibrant body of water is home to an abundance of wildlife and comprises of over 3,000 individual reef systems – an unforgettable experience for many, especially those who adore nature.
