Massive Darling Harbour and the smaller Circular Quay port are hubs of waterside life, with the arched Harbour Bridge and esteemed Royal Botanic Garden nearby. Sydney Tower’s outdoor platform, the Skywalk, offers 360-degree views of the city and suburbs.

Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and there are so many amazing things to check out. With the city’s natural beauty from recognizable landmarks to its sundrenched beaches and sparkling Harbour – it’s a popular location on a traveler’s bucket list. Don’t miss a swim at one of Sydney’s picturesque beaches or dining at one of the world-class restaurants.

Getting around Sydney

Public transport is used across Australia by locals, commuters and visitors alike, and Sydney is no exception. To use public transport including buses, trains, ferries and light rail in Sydney, you need to purchase an Opal card. You can purchase an Opal card from participating newsagents, post offices, convenience stores and supermarkets. Just look for the Opal symbol. You can also buy your Opal card right when you arrive at the domestic and international airport terminal stations.

Before using Sydney's public transport system, you’ll need to load your Opal card with money to cover your fares. You can top it up at convenience stores and train stations as your balance runs low. There are also top up machines at some stations and ferry wharves. To use your Opal card, tap your card on the reader when you board your selected mode of transport and be sure to tap the reader again when you disembark.  

The Opal network includes services in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, Illawarra and the Southern Highlands.
