Whether you’re searching for tropical beaches, wine regions or culturally and ethnically diverse experience, Sydney, a.k.a. Harbor City is the place for you. Even though it doesn’t have the title of Australia’s capitol, Sydney is the biggest and most visited city in Australia. And it’s for a good reason.

Beaches And Hostels

Sydney’s main attractions are its sandy, iconic beaches. The most popular ones are Bondi and Manly, and they are to die for.

Sydney is jeweled with white sandy beaches, from Palm Beach in the north to the famous Bondi in the south, there is something for everyone.

As far as hotels go, the prices vary greatly in the city. For those that prefer being closer to the city center, a private room at a hostel might be a better option.

The prices begin at around $70 and get bigger as you move closer to the center.

With that in mind, opting for a hostel would be a good idea. For $80, you can enjoy a private room in a hostel with a beautiful view of the ocean and 24-hour room service.

What To Do In Harbor City

Spending your time swimming, surfing, and relaxing on the beach can be heaven on Earth, but you can’t say you’ve been to Sydney if you haven’t checked out the Rocks.

While it’s the most historic part of the city with fine colonial buildings and sandstone churches, it also includes some of Australia’s oldest pubs. With street entertainment and weekend markets, we promise you won’t be bored for a single moment.

And finally we come down to the Opera House. The famous shelled roof makes it an architectural masterpiece, and there are many guided tours that can show you how much of a challenge building this famous structure really was.
