The city’s most famous and treasured icons are of course the Opera House and Harbour Bridge – harbour landmarks that have become synonymous with Sydney. It’s also home to a number of historic and beautiful parks including Hyde Park and the Royal Botanical Gardens. For a more aquatic pursuits, there’s the impressive Cook + Philip Aquatic Centre.
Residents and visitors to the city are rewarded with an abundance of things to do from climbing the bridge, jet boating around the harbour to exploring the many cultural centres such as the Museum of Sydney, The Museum of Contemporary Art and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. There are countless restaurants too, including world famous eateries such as Tetsuya’s and Rockpool and a plethora of bars and drinking holes – many of which enjoy spectacular city and harbour views.
Most of the accommodation in the city itself is high-rise buildings, many luxurious, some affordable, and most with dazzling views. Prominent and prestigious masterpieces designed by architects such as Ercole Palazetti, Harry Seidler and Renzo Piano are among the most coveted, and expensive real estate (per sqm) in Australia.
