Sydney Icons



Sydney Tower

Sydney Tower is the second tallest building in Australia. Its golden turret contains two levels of restaurants, a coffee lounge and an Observation Deck. Skywalk is a popular, breathtaking outdoor tour onto a roof top platform - the views of Sydney are uninterrupted in every direction.





Fort Denison

Fort Denison is situated on Pinchgut, one of the most visited and photographed islands on Sydney Harbour. In 1788 a convict named Thomas Hill was sentenced to a week on bread and water on the island. It later was turned into a military fort to protect the colony at Sydney Cove.





Taronga Zoo

With its panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline, the zoo is a "must see" for visitors to Sydney. Get there by car or by ferry from Circular Quay. The zoo is home to over 2,600 animals on 21 hectares, making it one of the largest of its kind.





Sydney Harbour Bridge

Acclaimed as one of the most remarkable feats of bridge construction in the world at the time it was built, until recently the Sydney Harbour Bridge was the longest single span steel arch bridge in the world and is still in a general sense the largest. It was completed in 1932.





Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is one of the world's iconic buildings of the 20th century and one of the few buildings to be erected in that century that is instantly recognisable in just about every country in the world. It an internationally recognised symbol of Sydney.





Manly Ferry

When you take the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly, you have to keep reminding yourself that you are not on a harbour cruise but just using public transport. It's the best value ferry ride with views of the whole harbour from the Harbour Bridge through to Watsons Bay and Manly.





Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach is Sydney's, and perhaps Australia's, most famous beach. About one kilometre long, it remains one of the best beaches in the world. This famous strip of sand is just a stone's throw away from a dazzling array of trendy restaurants, cafes and hotels.





Sydney Harbour

Of all the major cities in the world, there is perhaps only Brazil's Rio de Janiero that has a natural harbour as iconic and spectacularly beautiful as Sydney. One of three natural harbours that make up Port Jackson, Sydney Harbour is a magnificent backdrop to the city of Sydney.





Anzac Bridge

Completed in 1995, Anzac Bridge provides a key road link between Sydney City and the suburbs to the west. In striking addition to the Sydney skyline, Anzac Bridge is the longest cable-stayed bridge in Australia and among the longest in the world.
