Sydney’s rivalry with Australia’s second-largest city, Melbourne, grows out of its place as the nation’s financial and corporate heart. But its soul is at the beach, and more than likely on a surfboard. Many of the most desirable places to visit are not in the city, but rather in the northern beach towns, just a few miles away, especially Bondi, Coogee and Manly. Another top urban escape is Watsons Bay, the southern entrance to the harbour, known for its famous eateries, Beppi’s and Doyle’s. The beach towns are full of waterfront restaurants and cafés, and a memorable way to see it all is to fly via seaplane from downtown directly to a popular oceanfront restaurant. By far the city’s liveliest neighbourhood is also the oldest: The Rocks, just steps from Circular Quay, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Its cobblestone streets are lined with antique shops, art galleries, markets and farmers markets. In a city filled with memorable sights, the most unforgettable experience is the BridgeClimb, a guided excursion—with safety harness clipped in—across the suspension cables of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
