Sydney – A Grand Sydney Introduction
Sydney glimmers on the shores of the harbor with a sense of wonderment, cosmopolitan culture, and wealth of history. The Rocks neighborhood provides insight into the first European settlement on the continent with sandstone warehouses and Cadman’s Cottage, which was erected in 1816. Sailboats elegantly glide across the waters of the harbor, framed by the arching steel figure of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Your flight lands at Sydney Airport, where your private transfer meets you upon arrival. After settling into the comforts of your graceful and luxurious hotel overlooking Darling Harbour, your guide meets you in the lobby ready to take you on an introductory tour of the city’s rich history and exuberant atmosphere.
The scent of the sea sweeps through the walkway and streets around Circular Quay. You can see the billowing sails of the opera houses rising along the edges of the district. Verdant hills rise out of the waters to shape the suburbs outside of the Central Business District. Your guide leads you to the Sydney Botanic Gardens, which encompass nearly 75 acres. The grounds were established in the early 19th century and decorated with plants collected from overseas and across the continent. Bright white and red roses blossom in the rose garden. Hyacinth and oleanders provide herbaceous aromas around the tropical greenhouse. From Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair—a sandstone rock shaped like seat—you can see where the wife of Sydney’s first governor would watch the ships come into port from Europe.
