With a population of over 4 million inhabitants, Sydney is the perfect place to get away from the routine and immerse yourself in the exciting and beautiful city of the Australian continent. On the other hand you will also enjoy its cultural heritage, because it is the oldest city in the country, giving us a bit of history that further enriches the visit to this exciting metropolis.
To understand its rich cultural heritage it is necessary to travel back to 1788, when it first came a ship of exile, with the crème de la crème of British prisons. For many years this beautiful site was used as a huge prison. By that time, some parts of the city began to take shape, such as the famous Rocks area, with its narrow cobbled streets and old houses now turned into pubs and art galleries.
During the Gold Rush of the mid-nineteenth century the population grew considerably with the arrival of immigrants in search of fortune. And today it is a city with a high standard of living, which according to studies by the Mercer agency it occupies the 10th place in terms of quality of life in world rankings.
Once you get off the plane you will surely want to visit the well-known Sydney Opera House, opened in 1973 and recently declared a World Heritage Site. Inside you will be delighted by theatre, ballet and opera. Apart from the cultural attractiveness of this iconic building, you can enjoy the stunning views of Sydney Harbour, a site that leaves no one indifferent, a beautiful view that will remain etched in your memory for years.
But if you want to enjoy the views over the bay, do not forget to visit the Harbour Bridge. With a height of almost 50 meters above sea level it offers a breathtaking panoramic.
Another slightly more adventurous option is to cross the bridge through the cables supporting it tied with harnesses, and in the company of specialists. You will have amazing views of Sydney over 130 meters high, an experience for the more adventurous ones!
