Sydney City:  I first visited Sydney in 1959 as a kid. The Harbour Bridge was the big structure in those days. There was no Opera House. More than 50 years later, Sydney has become one of the Iconic cities of the world. Enjoy a leisurely lunch in any one of the waterfront restaurants and just soak up the bustle, the hustle and the fun that is Sydney.

The Blue Mountains: On the drive out to the Blue Mountains, you will be amazed by the sheer size of Sydney’s Western Suburbs. From a lookout near Katoomba you can see the Sydney skyline on the horizon.  All around is scenery, wildlife, peaks and dramatic valleys.

Canberra and the Australian Capital Territory: Established to end the rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne over which should be the Capital. Canberra is a planned city that is a monument to Federal Government. The Australian War Museum and the Federal Houses of Parliament are well worth a visit.
