The park is home to snow leopards, cotton-top tamarins, black-and-white ruffed lemurs, and red pandas. There are also Sumatran tigers, white lions, rhinos, giraffes, and lots more.

Bus lanes, trains and automobiles

Sydney is abundant with public transport options, from the extensive bus network to commuter ferries, metro and light rail. All public transport is serviced by the re-loadable Opal smartcard, which is free in newsstands and public transport stations – provided the Opal is loaded funds in advance. If you find the sprawling (admittedly complicated) network a little overwhelming, taxis and rideshare options exist.

The City of Eternal Summer

If you like beach weather, Sydney’s the city for you. With 300 days of sun a year, summers are hot and humid, while winters are mild. Annual temperatures average from mid-20’s to low-30’s Celsius, with the occasional summer heatwave that breaks with a spectacular thunderstorm. Don’t be fooled by the ocean breezes – Australia’s unfortunate placement below the hole in the ozone layer means that the sun burns, and it burns hot.

Cosmopolitan, adventurous and unmissable

One of Australia’s most buzzing cities, Sydney is a hub of art, culture, fashion and world-class dining. The Australian spirit imbued in every aspect of its identity, from its gorgeous architecture and foodie culture (hello, Thai Town and Spice Alley!) to the enviable tourist infrastructure. Whatever your interest, the Harbour City has no shortage of offerings that meet your tastes... and with its own unique sense of style. Beat that, Canberra!

What to do in Sydney for 3 days

Explore the Harbour

There’s a reason the Sydney Harbour is one of the most iconic architectural sights in the world. Whether from arch of the Harbour Bridge, the vistas of the famous Opera House, the dizzying heights of the Sydney Tower Eye or across the water at the exhilarating Luna Park, Sydney Harbour has no shortage of viewpoints to take your breath away. Learn about the city’s history and culture with tours through the Opera House itself or the bustling neighbourhood of The Rocks.

Connect with nature in the Blue Mountains

Step out of cosmopolitan Sydney and into the untamed wilderness of the Blue Mountains a mere hour’s drive away. A lush rainforest teeming with cackling kookaburras, panoramic viewpoints and cascading waterfalls, the Blue Mountains is an unmissable experience of Australian nature. Explore the Jenolan Caves, befriend kangaroos, koalas and other Australian wildlife at Featherdale Wildlife Park and learn the hidden secrets of the region with a spin on the Blue Mountains Explorer bus.

Family fun at Darling Harbour

When the weather gets hot, there’s no better place to seek shelter than Darling Harbour’s air-conditioned museums and tourist attractions. Get close and personal with your favourite celebrities with a trip to Madame Tussauds and learn all about Australia’s action-packed history at the Australian National Maritime Museum, home to an authentic retired submarine and the awe-inspiring navy destroyer, HMAS Vampire. Hungry? Try Braza Churrascaria, for Brazilian-style barbecue, or Betty's Burgers & Concrete Co., for some of the best burgers in town.

Get cosy with Australian wildlife

Indulge the animal lover in you with a visit to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, where you can see (and touch!) some of Australia’s most famous animals including koalas, kangaroos, wombats and God’s greatest practical joke: the platypus. No visit to Sydney is complete without a trip to the SEA LIFE Aquarium, featuring 13,000 sea creatures from over 700 Australian species. Embrace the philosophy of Australia’s iconic conservationist Steve Irwin and trust us: not all Australian wildlife is trying to kill you, so go befriend some during your trip to Sydney!
