Relaxed, confident, and oh so good looking, Sydney is like the popular girl in school that everyone wants to hang out with. And she knows it, flaunting her shimmering harbour, soaring structures, sun-drenched surf beaches, and leafy gardens like a pretty party dress and a new hair-do.

But don’t let all that beauty fool you, she’s smart too, in the form of world-class art galleries, state-of-the-art performance venues, and adventurous cutting-edge cuisine, that consistently see her top of the class.

When the First Fleet sailed into Port Jackson on 26 January 1788 with a boatload of convicts, they could never have imagined the international city she has become today. Nor could they foresee that waves of immigration would create one of the most multicultural cities in the world; where the country's rich and famous choose to live.

There’s always something thrilling going on somewhere in the Emerald City; a new restaurant to try, hidden bar to discover, pioneering performance to see, or emerging designer boutique to check out.

Always on the move, where anything goes, and everything usually does, her energy and charisma will surely seduce you. The only problem is; you may never want to let her go.
