Sydney, the harbour city where beaches and urban chic live side by side

On the east coast of Australia, Sydney is the nation’s most populated city. At its heart is a stunning harbour, which winds throughout, eventually breaking free into the Tasman Sea at the natural gateway between North Head and South Head. Today’s Emerald City is defined by the waves of immigration that have transformed the one-time British colony into a thrilling mulitcultural melting pot.

Sydney Wildlife World

See the largest variety of Australian wildlife under one roof

Stay Editor's Note

Opened in late 2006, Sydney Wildlife World on three levels is perfectly placed next to Sydney Aquarium for those families seeking an animal-oriented day out. There are over 100 Australian animal species on site and a huge variety of uniquely bizarre plant life.

The ethos of the park is to tell each species' story on an evolutionary timeline within its own habitat, including elements of the Aboriginal dreamtime and conservation issues. Koalas naturally top the list, but the park is also home to wallabies, echidnas, reptiles, amphibians and more. The butterfly collection is truly amazing.
