Things to Do in Sydney
It takes a particularly exceptional plate of food to draw your attention away from this view, but the chefs at 360 Bar and Dining have mastered the culinary challenge. Set 88 stories above the business district streets, this rotating restaurant ensures that every corner of Sydney is visible right from your table. Begin with an appetizer of kangaroo carpaccio while watching the sun set over the Blue Mountains, and by the time you finish lapping up the jus from a heaping plate of duck confit, the twinkling lights of Sydney Harbor will seem to write in cursive along the shoreline.
If the expansive view still has you in its grasp even once the meal is complete, grab a drink at the golden shell bar to literally drink in the urban elegance of one of the most magnificent sites in Sydney.
The Australian ski resorts of Perisher and Thredbo are within Kosciusko National Park in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains. Both resorts offer world-class skiing facilities and accommodations, along with several hundred kilometers of groomed trails suitable for beginners, advanced skiers and cross country skiing adventures.
Perisher is the largest ski resort in the southern hemisphere, amalgamating four villages and their surrounding ski fields. Accessible by road and Australia’s only underground rack railway, Skitube, the resort caters well to intermediate skiers but also has plenty of tracks suitable for beginners and advanced skiers. Thredbo has the longest ski runs in Australia, including the famous ‘Funnelweb,’ which is over 3km long, and some of the country’s steepest trails. Several terrain parks cater to everyone from beginners to the more advanced.
The Australian snow season runs from mid June until early October.
The largest city in Australia, Sydney is often considered one of the best cruise ports in the world, making it a must-see for anyone heading Down Under. Founded in the late 18th century as a British penal colony, it is also one of the oldest European settlements in Australia. Modern and cosmopolitan, Sydney is also laid-back and welcoming, with a variety of culture, history, art and nature to enjoy.
