Sydney is one of the busiest commercial hubs in the Asia-Pacific region with a cosmopolitan population, many historic sites, museums and parks. Sydney’s city centre offers visitors a huge variety of attractions, including designer boutiques, fine restaurants, hip bars and lavish department stores.

The city fans out from the focal point of Circular Quay. This transport hub is within walking distance of the city’s star attractions – Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, hailed as a 20th-century architectural masterpiece.

Sydney has two World Heritage cultural sites – Sydney Opera House and Hyde Park Barracks, an Australian convict site.
