Sydney holiday

Sydney Opera House

The first and foremost sight to see in Sydney is the beautiful and iconic Opera House. Recognised for its distinctive architecture, you can’t miss it! If you’re 'wowed' by the amazing architecture of the exterior, wait until you see the luscious interior inside. Expect a multi-venue performing arts centre when you enter the Opera House and make sure you take in the beautiful views of the harbour bridge. To get the best experience, we recommend you go on a tour of the Opera House to find out about its history and uniqueness. Visiting the Opera House is a sure 'must-do' in Sydney.

Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb

Like a thrill-seeking experience? Not afraid of heights? Take a walk on Sydney’s amazing Harbour Bridge. What’s more daring than simply walking over the Harbour Bridge, is climbing to the very top. But don't fret, there is a lot of safety precautions to ease your mind and the guides are both knowledgeable and friendly. Walking the Harbour Bridge climb is truly a unique way to see Sydney’s attractions, from its magnificent Opera House to its sparkling waters and surrounds. To see the best of both worlds, we recommend a twilight climb where you can see the daytime sights and also experience a simply breathtaking sunset. Make sure you wear comfy shoes - you’ll be climbing over 1,400 steps!
