The Harbour City

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Wollongong Head Lighthouse and Sydney Harbour Circle Walk. Get some historical perspective at Nan Tien Temple and The Rocks. When in Sydney, make a side trip to see Norah Head Lighthouse in Norah Head, approximately Norah Head away. The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of Cremorne Point to Mosman Bay Walk, explore the world behind art at White Rabbit Gallery, see a show at Sydney Opera House, and steep yourself in history at Justice & Police Museum.
