Top Places To Visit in Australia 643 Spots

When the Europeans arrived in Australia, a land so far from their own, they brought pieces of their own country and replanted them here— perhaps to ease their life in a fairly harsh landscape. Especially since many of them came from the gentle English countryside with all its lacy comforts, and were flung into the deep end of the Southern Hemisphere. Australia was a wild land, teeming with snakes, crocodiles and an unforgiving sun that shone long and hard. So, it must come as no surprise that the European settlers sometimes strung along things that would make them feel at home—mostly their favourite tree saplings, horses and timber-made ‘kit houses.’
After our Gold Coast trip, we headed for SYDNEY, one of the costliest cities in the world. While the flight prepared for landing, I enjoyed beautiful views of the Sydney harbour that hosts the famous Opera house and the Harbour Bridge.Our Stay: We stayed at Rendezvous Hotel Sydney Central located in the CBD area, the most well connected and lively part of the city.To move around: It is highly recommended to get an Opal Card which has the minimum cost of AUD10 for adult cards, AUD5 for child cards and can be used for metro, bus and ferry. Please do remember this card is non-refundable and you won't get any unutilized balance back. If you love driving, car hire is another economical and convenient option. UBER cars are easily available as well.
