Best Tours from Sydney
Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and the city with the largest population in Australia. Half of all international visitors to Australia come to Sydney, partially due to the fact that Sydney is a major airline hub that is linked via flight routings to all four corners of the globe. It is also a dominant commerce city for Australia and a centre for international students with over 100,000 international students coming to the city’s universities and English language schools.
Why visit Sydney?
Australia tours in Sydney offers fantastic beaches, great restaurants and bars, lots of free attractions like Botanical Gardens, family-friendly sightseeing (Taronga Zoo, Luna Park), major sports events (Bledisloe Cup, Netball World Cup), superb shopping, interesting art galleries and museums and good nightlife.
Sydney is well-known globally for iconic landmark, the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and popular excursions include day trips to the Blue Mountains.
The best time to visit Sydney
Sydney is a great year-round destination as the climate is subtropical-temperate, meaning the summers are hot and warm, and the winters are generally mild. There is rainfall and the occasional cyclone passing through, and sometimes in Australia you’ll see news bulletins of bush fires in the surrounding hills and dust storms but generally the weather is great for touring.
Sydney also hosts major sports events and festivals throughout the year so you’ll find something entertaining no matter when you visit. It’s a great place to celebrate New Year’s Eve with fireworks on the harbour and a great atmosphere at the city’s bars.
