Sydney and its surrounding areas provide for such an array of activities and adventures that most travellers choose to start their Australian itinerary here. There is no better introduction to Australia than to arrive in arguably the world’s most beautiful city, sitting on arguably the world’s most beautiful harbour. A walk around the harbour foreshore and its beautifully preserved botanic and colonial gardens always compliments a simple stroll around the culturally diverse restaurants, museums, and galleries of the city. For those who love to get the sand between their toes, take a quick dip, or simply wander along a beautiful beach. The Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley are a favourite day tour option out of Sydney, and provide guests with a simple step out into the country setting. Discover the picturesque views of the various escarpments and ranges of the Blue Mountains, or sample some of Australia’s finest wine and cuisine in the Hunter Valley. Departing from Sydney, travellers can find themselves undertaking a magnificent tour into the outback, or discovering the beauty of Australia’s high country.
