Flight and hotel packages in Sydney
Presentation of Sydney
Lying on the eastern coast of Australia, Sydney is the capital of New South Wales. It was the first town to be settled by convicts coming from the UK and they landed at Botany Bay where the airport is now situated. It has many wonderful beaches and is within a few hours driving of the glorious Blue Mountains, but it is also one of the most modern and cosmopolitan of Australia’s cities. It is very easy to get around with a great bus service, many taxis and of course the ferries that most commuters use to get into the CBD, or central business district. Mix all that with more than 340 sunny days a year, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy not only your holiday in Sydney but any help we can give you finding the best deal on your flight to Sydney as well.
Things to know before visiting Sydney
Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport is 5 miles south of the city, and it gives you the perfect opportunity to spy Botany Bay on your transfer into Sydney. Whether you are coming on a flight from London to Sydney or flight from Manchester to Sydney, the excitement you will feel to be on the other side of the world will be the same. Australian life is much like ours but sunnier, which makes it very easy to feel at home here. There are excellent transport links into the city with many air-conditioned cabs, trains and buses to take. UK citizens need an ETA (electronic travel authority) to enter Australia but this can be sorted out when you organise your holiday to Sydney. Book with us today and we can find you the best holiday packages at the right price.
Things to do in Sydney
There are a great many lovely beaches even in the city itself, and it is worth going to Bondi Beach just for people watching even if beaches aren’t your thing. For a birds-eye view over the whole of the city you can climb the Sydney Tower Eye, or even take a walk up to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Although you can see the iconic Opera House from many places in the city, it is spectacular when shining in the sun if you can view it from the top of the bridge. Why bother with a cruise around the harbour when you can pretend to be a local and just get on a ferry for a fraction of the price? The best one to take is the one to Manly as it will take you almost out to the Heads before turning in to this lovely beach town. Don’t forget, we can help you find the perfect flight and hotel in Sydney, so contact us today and we will sort out your low-cost holiday easily and simply.

What to eat in Sydney?
Doyles is a Sydney institution serving the best seafood around. You can either eat at the Circular Quay restaurant or, if you are feeling a little more adventurous, take a water taxi over to the Heads and eat at Doyles on the Beach in Watson’s Bay. Another alternative is a Sydney staple - pie and chips. It may sound basic but it is delicious and you can’t say you’ve had a proper holiday in Sydney until you have tried it. The best place to experience this delicacy is from Harry’s Cafe de Wheels in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo district, and it has been selling pies in Sydney for over 70 years. Contact us today so that we can find you the best in discount holidays so that you have more money to spend on the amazing food that Sydney can offer.
