When you land in Australia's oldest and biggest city, you'll soon realise that there's so much to explore fitting it all in will be a challenge on your holiday with The Co-operative Travel.
Of course, nearly everywhere you go you'll have those iconic images of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge to turn to, but the myriad of cultures and lifestyles which live within their shadows will truly open your eyes.
This is a laid-back city whose inhabitants are irresistibly drawn to the outdoor life - but then, when you've got the likes Bondi or Palm Beach as your playground, you can instantly see why.
Maybe it's because these beaches are so inextricably linked to the city that its folk seem to have adopted such a relaxed approach to life. Bondi, of course, is the surfers' paradise, while Palm Beach at the city's northern extremity, is a much more relaxed location, and has become a hangout of the city's elite.
In recent times, especially since it made such a success of hosting the 2000 Olympic Games, Sydney's image as a place which knows how to put on a celebration has just mushroomed, and every year, especially on New Year's Eve and Australia Day, you can see faces and hear accents from all over the globe of people who have decided they just have to be in this party capital.
Boutique hotels, international chains, small guesthouses and backpackers' retreats mean that you're spoilt for choice of places to stay on your package holiday or all-inclusive holiday to Sydney. And as Sydney is a relatively compact city, you're never far from the hub of the action.
The friendly locals will point you in the direction of the best pubs and restaurants, and as a truly international city, Sydney has all bases covered when it comes to food, from fine dining to bars and pubs offering simple and hearty food.
If you're feeling adventurous, you can climb to the top of the Harbour Bridge for an unsurpassable view of the city and ocean, while another romantic favourite is a boat trip to Manly or a harbour cruise. A visit to Taronga Zoo at Sydney Wildlife Park will certainly give your Sydney holiday the 'aah' factor.
A well-developed metro system makes exploring easy, and you'll easily fill up the days while in this city of incredible contrasts. If you're looking to get away at short notice then come to The Co-operative Travel today, and see what late deals we have on last minute holidays to Sydney. It may be on the other side of the world, but Sydney is a destination which has been turning peoples' worlds upside down for years now!
