Sydney is a pearl of the Pacific Ocean, celebrated for illustrious beach culture and spectacular architecture that celebrates both land and sea. Your flight will land at Sydney Airport where your private transfer will meet you at baggage claim. Your hotel is located near the bustling downtown region that overlooks Darling Harbour, and will offer a perfect blend of city access with the relaxing ambiance of the seaside. You can look out your window to a view of sailboats floating past one another and graceful arch of the Harbour Bridge glinting in drifting sunlight.
Your guide will greet you in your hotel lobby, keen on introducing you to the stunning highlights of the city, from the old walkways of the Rocks district, Sydney’s oldest neighborhood, to the marvelous arcades of the Queen Victoria Building. The shopping center was originally erected in the late 19th century beneath a set of 20 cupolas encircling the central dome, and the natural light spills into the main gallery highlighting the historical window frames and mosaic tile floors. Your guide will point to the allegorical marble figures above the entrances of York Street, representing the “Genius of the City,” with the two figures above the entrance of George Street embodying the glory of civilization.
