Once or twice a year, the decision has to be made as to where the annual vacation will take place. Some like the big city life, where shopping is popular and they can purchase clothes, souvenirs and other memorabilia, others prefer the laid back atmosphere of the white sandy beaches. Then there are vacationers who prefer the party scene, where there are different events taking place every night of the holiday, all of which can be found in Sydney Australia. Here are just a few of the popular sights you can see on a visit to Sydney.

Darling Harbor.
Located just outside the city of Sydney, Darling Harbor is a popular tourist attraction. A bee hive of activity, this destination is chocked full of attractions for the visitor, both local and foreign. Stop by places such as The Star Casino and Entertainment Complex, Australia’s first retail Jet flight simulator, both the Powerhouse and the Sydney Museums and of course there is the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The Rocks.
Located in New South Wales, the Rocks has been around since the late 1700s and is often referred to as the spot where the colony was formed. Through the years, the Rocks has been through many changes, but in the late 1960s, the Sydney Cove Redevelopment Authority got involved and initially planned on getting rid of much of the landscape. The buildings were eventually saved and play an important part of the history of Sydney Australia.

Sydney Opera House.
Probably one of the most photographed locations in Sydney, the Sydney Opera House is attended by over one million people each year, who spend their money to witness over 1500 performances. If for no other reason than the design of the building, this opera house has been a major source for attracting people to Sydney.

Sydney Tower Eye.
Visitors to Sydney will attest to the fact that there are several eye catching and entertaining venues to attend, but what if you could get a birds eye view before you actually decided to wander off, would you be interested? The Sydney Tower Eye offers such a perch, allowing visitors to this major city down under, to see where they plan on going, before they even get started.

Royal Botanic Gardens.
As one of the three major botanical gardens in Sydney and considered as a great place to visit, the Royal Botanical Gardens can help you get away from it all. Maybe you did not come to Sydney to relax, but these gardens which were opened in the early 1800s, may be the perfect place to chill after a night on the town. So now that you know what Sydney has to offer, are you ready to book a ticket?
