As one of the most popular cities in Australia, Sydney has a lot to boast about. It is the most populated city in the country and is the capital of New South Wales. As Sydney intermingles between land and sea, it offers several marvels for the tourists. You can glide along the scenic harbor on a ferry, enjoy the gleaming white sails of Opera House, or fall in love with the Harbor Bridge during your visit. The vibrancy of Sydney is as such now that it is almost impossible to believe that it was once nothing more than a convict colony.
Yes, it is in Sydney that Captain Arthur Phillip founded the first Australian British colony in 1788. While those days are long gone, Sydney does an excellent job of still allowing people to explore the past through its cobbled, narrow lanes and a host of historic buildings and museums. The Rock, The Royal Botanic Garden, Queen Victoria Building, Barangaroo Reserve and Taronga Zoo are some of the places that no tourist should miss during their Sydney trip.
If you love water, the city is also very popular for its beaches and water activities. The Bondi Beach, Cronulla Beach, Tamarama Beach, Bronte Beach, Collaroy, and Maroubra are some top options for beach lovers. The climate too is warm and sunny for the most part of the year and the winters are generally mild. March to May and September to November are the best times to visit this amazing city. The climate during these months is generally very comfortable and the tourist crowd is fairly manageable.
