Sydney Luxury Yachting Guide

Home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks and breathtaking waterfront quarters is the seductive harbour city of Sydney. From the sun-drenched quays surrounding the dramatic harbour, to the sprawling shopping streets shadowed by brilliant city-centre skyscrapers, Sydney is the epitome of elegant outdoor living.

Located on the east coast of New South Wales, Sydney is arguably Australia’s premier city, boasting everything from luxury hotels, sublime beaches, gorgeous weather, first-class shopping and charismatic suburbs. Sydney is a thriving hub of both business and the arts, constantly jostling with Melbourne for the title of cultural capital. The city’s museums, galleries, theatres and sporting venues are first-class and the city seems to be in a constant state of celebration for one reason or another.

Sport
As with all of Australia’s major cities, sport reigns supreme in Sydney, where the national sports of Rugby League and cricket are major events on the sporting calendar, though anything from soccer, rugby union, tennis, AFL, swimming and golf can be watched at almost any time of the year.

The Rocks
Australia’s vibrant outdoor spirit is well and truly alive in this bustling metropolis, where al-fresco dining, bike rides through the park and open-air music performances are all part of the Sydney lifestyle. The historical harbour side precinct of The Rocks is a maze of cobble-stone streets and leafy courtyards lined with the city’s oldest restaurants, pubs and cafés sitting alongside bustling markets selling local artworks and traditional Australian fare.

Circular Quay
Circular Quay is the Sydney of dreams, a perfect sun-filled space of water and concrete, housing exquisite restaurants and opulent hotels alongside the architectural brilliance of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
