Sydney is Australia's global city; set around a spectacular harbour and edged with stunning surf beaches. From the city's iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, to its exciting dining and outdoor bar scene, and a non-stop calendar of blockbuster events, Sydney shines all year round.
As Australia's most geographically diverse state, New South Wales offers a spectacular range of nature experiences from hiking through wilderness areas, snorkelling and diving, spotting wildlife and exploring the stars of the regional night skies. The NSW coastline is a remarkable 1,590km long, with 990km of beautiful beaches. It's no wonder that beach-goers and surfers love NSW beaches; there are around 890 ocean and bay beaches in the State, and Sydney itself has almost 100 beaches.
