Don’t forget your camera — you’ll want to capture every moment of this action-packed adventure in and around Sydney. You'll get to know the popular port city starting with a fascinating sightseeing tour of its top attractions, including Royal Botanic Gardens, St. Mary’s Cathedral, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Next, experience Sydney Fish Market, open since 1945 with its seafood displays, restaurants and a wharf — you’ll have some free time there to explore and to treat yourself to lunch! Continue to Central Park of Sydney, then see Hyde Park and Darling Harbour before returning to your hotel.
The following day, you’re off to the majestic Blue Mountains — a UNESCO World Heritage site — an area renowned for its rock formations, dramatic waterfalls and stunning valleys. Prepare to be wowed as you take in picturesque views of Echo Point and the “Three Sisters” rock formation. Then, after a delicious lunch, you’ll end your tour at Leura Mall, a street lined with boutiques, cafes and souvenir shops.
Your final outing brings you to Port Stephens, where you’ll hop on a boat for a delightful and relaxing lunch cruise around Nelson Bay. Back on land, get ready for thrills and adrenaline-pumping fun as you try sandboarding on the dunes near Anna Bay. You can climb up the dunes and ride down as many times as you want — or simply cheer on others as they slide down on their boards!
During your leisure time, you can do as much — or as little — as you’d like! Your historic, award-winning hotel is perfectly set in the Central Business District, so you can experience all that this vibrant destination has to offer. A short walk from the hotel is Circular Quay, a major transportation hub and gateway to many of the city’s most iconic attractions. Or, head west to Barangaroo, Sydney’s newest waterfront district and home to spectacular dining options. Other points of interest include award-winning Taronga Zoo® Sydney and Luna Park Sydney, a heritage-listed amusement park — both located in North Sydney.
