Things to do

Because Sydney is a major Australian city in a central location, there are always things to do. 

There's big-city shopping, some of Australia's best dining experiences and exciting sports and arts events that include the Australian Garden Show, the Sydney Moderns Art Festival and the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prizes at the Art Gallery of NSW, the Sydney Running Festival and the Australian Open Golf Championship. 

The mild weather is perfect for outdoor nature activities such as walks by the beach, harbour-side hikes, cycling and golf.

Travel opportunities

Sydney's central location on the East Coast of Australia makes it a good starting point for travel to other cities. The Gold Coast and Brisbane are not too far north, and Melbourne is South West of Sydney. You may also have the opportunity to visit Cairns and see the Great Barrier Reef!
