DAILY TRAVEL INSPIRATION: Sydney

Sydney is the largest city in Australia and its unusual location on a huge natural harbour gives it a unique feel. The iconic skyline of the harbour bridge and the Sydney Opera House make an instantly recognisable selfie backdrop, but there’s so much more to Sydney than good looks.

Sydney has a great range of sports and activities to try. Go for a hike or a run on the cliffs above Bondi beach, or take to the waves on a surfboard or kayak. Swimming is also possible with some beaches even protected by shark nets.

For a different view of the city climb the harbour bridge. There is a pedestrian walkway that is free to access and a pylon lookout in one of the towers that also houses a small museum. Book ahead for a guided tour of the bridge’s steel arch which takes you out on to the maintenance stairways and ladders that scale the bridge.
