Sunny, sparkling Sydney

Sydney has many beautiful blue sky days. When the sky is blue, Sydney, especially, by the water, is absolutely stunning! It’s a busy, bustling city that appears to have been less impacted by the pandemic than Melbourne. There are lots of lovely places to visit. Big name, iconic sights as well as more hidden treasures. Old buildings and gleaming skyscrapers sit side by side.
