A day in Sydney may start with a hike in a national park and end with a jawdropping performance at one of the city’s great theatres. The combination of enchanting natural landscapes and a cultural scene that welcomes all is an energising mix you won’t want to miss. Feel new in this dynamic city with an Italian feast with friends al fresco; a cultural walk through the inner city’s coolest pockets; exploring underwater worlds; and dancing the night away.
