What to know before you fly to Sydney?

Flights over Sydney Harbour

Sydney's Famous Harbour

Many visitors to Sydney go primarily to experience the picturesque Sydney Harbour. Exploring this iconic precinct will uncover the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Luna Park, the Sydney Aquarium and the Australian National Maritime Museum, just to name a few.

Food lovers will appreciate the diverse array of cuisines on offer throughout Sydney. Soak up the tantalizing tastes and aromas of authentic Thai and Vietnamese eateries, or put on your Sunday best and visit one of the many world-class fine dining restaurants dotted around the city. For a meal with a view, book a table at Quay and take in the sights of the harbour while you dine.
