Beaches and bays every which way
Sydney’s beaches really are the envy of the world. Depending on where you’re from, you might know dozens of them reasonably well, or just a handful of household names like Bondi, Manly and Palm Beach. But from Barrenjoey Headland in the north, to Cronulla in Sydney’s south, there’s a ribbon of coastal beaches and bays with names like Bungan, Bilgola, Dee Why, Tamarama and Little Bay, each with their own charms and secrets. Your Sydney travel agent will, inevitably have his or her own favourite.
Sydney’s inner harbour beaches waterways are just as diverse and worth seeking out. Head for Balmoral, Clifton Gardens, Cobblers Bay and Clontarf in Middle Harbour and you’ll find delightful oases from the rush and rumble of the city. There’s loads to do in and around these suburban sandy expanses—just ask your Sydney travel agent.

Bondi might be the biggest beach name in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. The coastal walk from Bondi to Bronte swells with visitors each Spring as the city’s famous Sculpture by the Sea takes up residence. But there’s much more here than just Bondi and Bronte. Make your way to the harbour side suburbs of Rose Bay, Vaucluse, Watson’s Bay and Double Bay, for example, and you’ll find beautiful sandy stretches with astonishing views of the city skyline. Some of them are a bit out of the way, but your Sydney travel agent can help you seek them out.

The gourmet city
As a global city, Sydney’s resident population comes from just about every nook and cranny on the planet. And that means food! With ethnic communities all over the city, Sydney’s food landscape is mouth-wateringly delicious—much more diverse than just Haymarket’s Chinatown and Leichhardt’s little Italy. Sydney travel agents live and breathe this dining diversity, and the gourmands among them will have a good handle on the city’s finest diners and cheap eats.
Ask your Sydney travel agent about lunch or dinner cruises on Sydney Harbour, suburban food discovery tours and gourmet adventures, as well as trips to Sydney’s famous Fish Market and best dining precincts. And while you’re at it, why not ask them where their favourite restaurant is?

A Gateway to good times
For many visitors, Sydney isn’t just a brilliant destination in its own right—it’s a gateway to a host of fascinating regions north, south and west. Many of these places will be well-known to locals as ideal weekend-away destinations, just a few hours drive from home—the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and Newcastle, and Wollongong, for example.
A local Sydney travel agent can help you plan the perfect short break anywhere from Katoomba to Kiama and beyond. Their expertise isn’t limited to far shores and distant lands. As professional ATAS accredited travel agents, they’re always exploring and experiencing places as visitors would, even at home.
