Sydney is a major international tourist destination notable for its beaches and twin landmarks: the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Brigde. The metropolitan area is surrounded by national parks and contains many bays rivers and inlets.

Sydney is a rare jewel - sparkling both day and night and the city reflects the australian personality - a bit brash, a bit cheeky but warm, outgoing and friendly. And it knows how to party! there is something for every visitor - first class hotels, restaurants, beaches, theatre, sight seeing, nightlife and its overall vibrancy.

Byron Bay is a beachside town located in the far-northeastern corner of the state of NSW. Cape Byron is the eastermost point of the mainland of Australia. It is located in Byron Bay. The cape was named by British explorer Captain James Cook, to honour British explorer John Byron who circumnavigated the globe in the HMS Dolphin from 1764-1766.
