Sydney is the capital city of New South Wales. The city is wrapped around the beautiful and iconic Sydney Harbour. This is one of Australia's oldest, biggest and most diverse cities. From the center of downtown out to the suburbs, there is an endless array of charming and interesting things to see. The dazzling sites of Darling Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge complement each other. The historic city center is a fascinating place to spend the day. The many beaches surrounding the city and Blue Mountains National Park—a World Heritage Site—are great places to either relax or be active.

An American Architect Louis Khan once said, " The sun did not know how beautiful its light was until it was reflected off the Sydney Opera House”. The glimmering white shells of the Sydney Opera House contrast with the bright blue waters of the Sydney Harbor. It appears naturalistic like a remnant of an ancient shell from another age yet futuristic! The UNESCO World Heritage site, The Sydney Opera House is an icon of Australia and one of the world's most recognizable buildings.

Australia, the Land Down Under, is a vast continent full of rich biodiversity, incredible culture, and untamed wilderness. The great Australian Outback is the stuff of legend. A vast expanse of desert and grasslands stretching to the horizon. Running along the country’s eastern coast is the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system. Sydney Harbor is recognizable the world over for the famed Opera House and the New Years fireworks display. A country flush with natural resources, Australia is a welcoming destination where travelers can find just about anything.
