Sydney is the most populous city in Australia and the state capital of New South Wales. The main draw for travelers is the beautiful harbor featuring the iconic Sydney Opera House. We found the city to be welcoming, walkable and we loved being so close to the fantastic beaches of Bondi and Manly. A trip to Australia would not be complete without spending some time in this amazing metropolis, so being there for New Year’s made it even better!
