The city of Sydney can boast many attractions for the tourist to visit and enjoy. Not least is the Harbour Bridge, from which Sydney draws its nickname Harbour City. The Sydney Harbour Bridge was finished in 1932, right in the middle of the great depression. Two other long established attractions are Taronga Zoo and Luna Park, with its big, smiling face arching over the entrance.
The Opera House is a famous attraction right on the foreshore of the Harbour and its five theatres host an amazing variety of performers, while at Darling Harbour you can visit the underwater aquarium and enjoy other attractions such as the Japanese Gardens. Sydney also has its share of theatres and museums. For a magical Sydney restaurant dining experience or just to see the lights of the city, there is the Sydney Tower, the third highest observation tower in the southern hemisphere.
Favourite nightspots for party people are located at King’s Cross, Darling Harbour, Oxford Street, The Rocks and Circular Quay. You can take your pick from the many nightclubs, discos, bars and restaurants, but the only official gambling den, Star City Casino is located around Darling Harbour. If you are into live music, many great shows can be found at Newtown and Annandale, with Cronulla, Manly, Bondi and Parramatta being hosts out of the CBD.
