Although Sydney was founded in 1788 as a penal colony, it didn't become an official city until 1842. From the rough and ready energy of its outgoing, open-minded people to its sun-drenched natural attractions, Sydney has something for everyone, and I mean everyone. It's impossible not to love this town! Voted world's best city a combined 11 times by Conde Nast Traveler and travel and leisure magazines, it's easy to see why it's Australia's top vacation destination. And since more than 50% of the city is bordered by Sydney Harbour, that's a great place to start!
Considered to be one of the most beautiful harbors in the world, Sydney Harbour is just as popular with the locals as it is with visitors. There's just so much to do and see here. The combination of sun and surf makes this the perfect place for all kinds of outdoor activities. There's cruising, sailing, strolling the circular quay or my personal favorite, taking a harbor cruise!
Welcome to New Zealand, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. There's so much to do here, and because the seasons are reversed, the possibilities are endless. Auckland is the country's largest city. They call it the City of Sails because here, life revolves around the harbor.
Enjoy all the thrills and adventures as you take in the magic of ?Down Under!?
