To satisfy the growing demand for Europeans wanting to swap hemispheres and turn winter into summer Etihad Airways continue to increase the number of flights to Australia from Europe with scheduled services to Sydney from London, Paris, Dublin and Frankfurt some of which go via Abu Dhabi – the hub airport for their fleet.

The world famous beaches of Bondi and Manly are known the world over as surf destinations and many people can’t wait to relax on their soft white sands. While a tour around the entertainment centre of Darling Harbour is another popular choice.

More to Sydney

There are many historic sites around the city for visitors to explore, some of the most interesting stem from Sydney’s colonial days when forts and batteries were built to defend the city against invasion. Places such as Lower Georges Heights Commanding positions, Middle Head Fortifications and the defences at Bradley Head. The Rocks is another historic centre on Sydney Harbour where visitors can find a host of souvenir stalls, quaint coffee bars and eclectic craft shops.
