Sydney is Australia’s most famous city, with the majestic Sydney Opera House, the impressive steel arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the sparkling waterways and the white sands of Bondi Beach. Beneath this glittering surface Sydney has many more enchanting layers to discover. This beautiful cosmopolitan city celebrates its cultural diversity and heritage, and passion for arts and sports. A temperate climate makes Sydney spectacular at any time of the year, and the city’s friendly, casual attitude keeps visitors coming back Down Under
Melbourne is an arty powerhouse with a vibrant and multicultural soul. Nicknamed “Paris of the southern hemisphere,” Melbourne is not only known to be Australia’s cultural hot-spot, but is also famous for its major sport events and its culinary delights
from all across the world. With its high rising city centre and far stretching suburbs, it is hard not to be dragged in by the life of the capital of Victoria—”the place to be”—but daytrips to the wild nature of the state are also extremely attractive.
