Sydney Harbour is a beautiful setting for Australia’s largest city, and at night it really sparkles.
The southern New South Wales coast includes some real gems. Driving along the coast up to Sydney early one morning, I was particularly struck by this rugged headland at Tathra.
The Sydney Opera House is the iconic architectural symbol of Australia, and cameras seem magnetically drawn to it.
The Towamba Valley is nestled between state forests and national parks and yet still only half an hour to the stunning Sapphire Coast, at that. Adding to the charm is that it’s just not that easy to get to. And that’s just the way the locals like it.
The start of Australia’s Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race is one of the world’s great ocean yacht racing events.
