Get an insider’s take on what to see and do in sunny Sydney, Australia.

By Natalie Aroyan

A Sydneysider all my life, I am eternally grateful that my grandparents selected this vibrant, sparkling town as their place of emigration from Egypt back in 1963. Growing up in the leafy suburb of Lane Cove on Sydney’s North Shore, I was just a hop, skip, and a jump from our world famous harbor, which allowed me to truly experience the beauty of a city that’s on the bucket lists of people around the world…and rightly so.

While Sydney may be a mecca for tourists after a glimpse of the world-famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House, the postcard-perfect cityoffers a whole lot more.

Tourist Tips

With a myriad of public transport options, you can be swimming at one of our many glorious beaches in under half an hour or walking in the steps of our colonial ancestors in The Rocks, directly adjacent to the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay.

Established in Sydney in 1788, The Rocks was one of the first British convict camps. Its sandstone cliffs house a colorful and gritty history that can be traced in the many original buildings still standing in the area. Visitors can stroll through one of Australia’s first settlements, now transformed into a lively locale of trendy bars, restaurants, and bespoke shops and galleries showcasing the talent of local Sydneysider.
