The city of Sydney is a bustling, thriving multicultural hub with plenty of restaurants, entertainment venues and cultural activities held throughout the year and easily accessible using recently upgraded and modern public transport. From buses to trains to the cute ferries traversing our sparking sea, Sydney landmarks are very easy and convenient to get to and from, day or night. With Sydney’s population ever-increasing and a fragile environment, we are advised to leave the car at home and catch public transport.
Sydney’s latest attraction in the City Centre is Barangaroo, one of the world’s most impressive waterfront projects showcasing Sydney as Australia’s gateway to the world. The Barangaroo site is owned by the NSW Government and is expected to be a globally celebrated destination for its location and aesthetics. Barangaroo Reserve (Sydney’s newest Harbour foreshore park) is an example of this and sees tourists and families, as well as joggers, making use of this spectacular headland location.
