Sydney is often thought of as a harbour with a famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Tourists flock to Sydney Harbour in their millions every year to see these Australian icons. But dig a little deeper and Sydney is capable of winning the heart of any tourist with its liveable suburbs, amazing beach life and surrounding natural landscapes. Brightsun Travel has exclusive holidays to Sydney and its surrounds, offering tours into the heart of this iconic region. Arriving in Sydney for the first time, it's hard not to want to run to the harbour and acquaint yourself with the iconic landmarks of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. They are impressive by any city’s standards. The Opera House towers majestically over the harbour’s glimmering blue waters, with some of Australia's most expensive real estate at its edges. Take the Manley ferry to enjoy the harbour views up close, or, better still, see a performance at the Opera House to tour its impressive internal architecture. To get a break from the crowds you can take a stroll around the nearby Botanical Gardens, just a stone’s throw from the harbour, and a tropical haven within the city’s borders. Brightsun Travel has cheap holidays to Sydney at some of the harbour’s best hotels so you can be at the centre of it all.
Now it's time to venture out and see the real Sydney. Darlinghurst and Surrey Hills offer authentic Sydney charm with pretty Victorian buildings and vibrant cafés. Surrey Hills takes you to some of Sydney's most cutting edge night life and contemporary galleries, as well as unexpected restaurants down industrial back streets. Nearby Potts Point and Rushcutters Bay feel more like New York, with edgy cool bars and innovative dining spots against a backdrop of Naval ships and water based industry. A trip to Sydney would not be complete without visiting the famous Bondi beach where you can surf and sunbathe with the locals, and take an impressive coastal walk to the neighbouring suburb of Coogee. But it's not just the city that makes Sydney so iconic. Not too far away, you will find yourself in the stunning Blue Mountains, a National Park that is truly awe inspiring, and a weekend trip from Sydney could take you into famous Australian wine country in the Hunter Valley. Brightsun Travel has fantastic holidays to Sydney with tours of its trendy urban centre and memorable excursions into its breathtaking surrounds.
