Arrive into Sydney

Sydney is Australia's most famous city and with almost 20% of the country's population, is also Australia's largest city. Situated on the east coast of Australia it has beautiful white sand beaches, including the famous Bondi Beach and Manly Beach as well as the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and of course, the Sydney Opera House. Rich in history, art, and food Sydney has something for everyone.

SUGGESTED ACTIVITY - Evening Dinner Cruise on Sydney Harbour

Sydney harbour is like a sunset painting in progress. The aquamarine colours of Summer give way to the warm orange hues of Autumn before deepening to a magical Winter twilight blue. Year-round, sun-up or sun-down and everything in between, the colours of Sydney Harbour will welcome you onboard the evening Dinner Cruise. This is the perfect start to an evening or stunning end to an amazing day in the greatest city in the world.

SUGGESTED ACTIVITY - Hidden Bars of Sydney Walking Tour with Depot Adventures

In 2014, the government of New South Wales introduced lockout laws, which forever changed Sydney’s bar scene. Suddenly, club-hopping was no more in a city known for some of the best nightlife in Australia.
In a story of unintended consequences, a new kind of bar started to appear in the city — one that you could settle into for the night with a small group of mates. Sydney’s speakeasies came roaring into fashion, and now hidden bars behind pizza shops, dumpling halls and back laneways are all the rage.
Join a local guide and discover the incredibly new and exciting trend in Sydney’s hospitality scene.
