Sydney is accessible by air from anywhere in the world. A large number of visitors also come by sea on cruise liners and the like. If you’re coming from elsewhere in Australia there are good rail services or you can drive there.

Dining out in Sydney is a really great experience whether you visit Chinatown or the more sedate Double Bay and when you’ve eaten your fill you can stroll back to Rose Bay and enjoy the wonderfully interesting shoreline and rocky outcrops.

Sydney is wonderful all year round but Spring and Autumn are especially good.
