Bondi Beach

Bondi is a popular and fashionable beach resort, known for its famous sandy beach and as a great place to surf.

The beach promenade has a number of cafes and restaurants that overlook the beautiful coastline. The parkland area is regularly frequented by roller-bladers, cyclists and skaters, who all add to the atmosphere of health and vitality.

Over the years the beach has been used as a location for a number of Australian and International films and television series, as well as hosting the beach volleyball competition at the 2000 Summer Olympics.

To the north of the resort rests an Aboriginal site, which inside has Aboriginal rock engravings.

The Rocks

Often described as an “open-air museum,” The Rocks is an important historical area of Sydney named after the sandstone bluffs from which convicts first cut bricks for the construction of new buildings. The Rocks is also the place where British settlement was initially established by the First Fleet when they stepped ashore on 26 January 1788, giving birth to Australia as we know it today.

Located on the western shore of Sydney cove between the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Rocks is now a vibrant and commercial precinct, which combines historic buildings with modern amenities including shops, cafés and top-notch restaurants.

At the weekend, The Rocks hosts a market with arts, crafts, homewares and collectables with an emphasis on Australian made goods. There are also street theatre performances to entertain visitors while they enjoy the sights and sounds of the city.

Sydney Opera House

One of the globe’s most famous 20th century landmarks, the Sydney Opera House sets the scene as a performing arts venue recognised the world over. This magnificent building is located in Sydney Harbour, close to Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site on June 28, 2007.

The two largest structures often referred to as ‘shells,’ house the Concert Hall and Opera Theatre. Other theatres are located on the sides of these with the Bennelong Restaurant in a smaller grouping of shells. The roof of the structure is covered with millions of white and cream tiles and was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who won the competition to design this Australian icon.

The Opera House is the headquarters of the Sydney theatre company, Sydney Symphony and Opera Australia. It also showcases many other theatrical, musical and ballet productions.
