The Sydney Harbour Bridge or "Coathanger," as locals call it, was the city best-known landmark prior to construction of the Sydney Opera House. Sydney is famous for its fabulous beaches. Tucked around the harbor are many sheltered coves with calm water and sugary sands.
Built by convict labor in Sydney Cove, bustling Circular Quay is now home to the city main ferry terminal. Thousands of commuters flood the area at peak hours, cafés and restaurants line the waterfront, and street performers entertain locals and visitors along the sunny walkways as you can see in Sydney attractions map. A best attraction and a hub for tourists and locals alike, Darling Harbour is a waterfront pedestrian precinct packed with shops, restaurants, museums, exhibitions, and entertainment venues. Barangaroo Reserve is an excellent example of a successful urban renewal project and a lovely spot for a walk along the harbor.
A tranquil oasis amid the hustle and bustle of the city, the Royal Botanic Garden at Farm Cove lies a short and scenic stroll along the waterfront from the Sydney Opera House. The gardens were established in 1816 and encompass 30 hectares of themed gardens with towering trees, palm groves, orchids, ferns, and flocks of fruit bats as its shown in Sydney attractions map. A high point of Sydney shopping is the Romanesque-style Queen Victoria Building ("QVB"), linked by underground arcades with Town Hall Station. Soaring above the city skyline, the 309-meter-high Sydney Tower Eye is the city tallest building and one of its great attractions and landmarks (other than the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, of course).
