What Can You Expect in Sydney?

According to an Aboriginal Dreamtime legend, Meehni, Wimplah, and Gennedoo once lived in the Jamison Valley of the Blue Mountains. These three sisters had fallen in love with brothers from another tribe, and tribal laws forbade them to marry. The brothers abducted the sisters, triggering a terrible war. In an attempt to protect the sisters, a witch doctor turned them to stone. Tragically, he was killed before he could restore them, and The Three Sisters remain today, magnificent pillars of stone, in Katoomba, a drive about two hours west of Sydney.

Searching, finding, and finally booking international flights to Sydney will no doubt play a key role in your travel plans to this one-of-a-kind world-class city, where you can explore The Three Sisters, Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, and so much more. You’ll be flying into Sydney Airport, either on a domestic or international flight, and you will be able to take advantage of a variety of convenient transportation options to your accommodations, including taxis and limousine services, light rail, or buses.

Bondi is one of the best-known beaches of Sydney and even the world, but Palm Beach and Whale Beach, though less well known, are not to be missed. Palm Beach is located about an hour from the Opera House. One of the cleanest beaches in the area, Palm Beach has a relaxed atmosphere and is ideal for surfers. Whale Beach is one of Sydney’s hidden gems, perfectly suited for family picnics or swimming in the 25-meter ocean pool.

Finally, the Bondi to Coogee Beach Cliff Walk is a must-do for people of all fitness levels. A city like Sydney with gorgeous weather year-round is perfect for outdoor activities like walks. The Bondi to Coogee Cliff Walk passes along Sydney’s eastern beaches, and you can choose to walk the entire six kilometers, stopping for a swim or lunch at one of Sydney’s beaches or restaurants along the way, or you can take it in shorter spurts if you prefer. Spectacular coastal views and occasional Aboriginal rock art will delight you every step of the way.
