Night or day or the Earth Hour – Sydney Harbour simply takes your breath away!

Sydney Harbour – the harbour that attracts the most number of visitors in the world – is known for its breathtaking beauty during the day and its spectacular views during the night!

The daytime presents the harbour with a clear blue sky and crystal blue-green waters. There are yachts and ferries scattered all around and there are catamarans and paddlewheelers cruising gracefully.  There are colourful jet boats cutting across the waters making pretty lines of waves and ripples.

As the night falls, the harbour is a picture of glittering lights – the lights of the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Luna Park, the Fort Denison and all the other magnificent landmarks of the harbour. All this canopied by a starry night is a wonderful eyeful, to say the least!

The dizzying markets of Sydney

Come weekends, the Sydney markets are alive and bustling with shoppers hunting for souvenirs, antiques, crafts and jewellery as well as clothes, books, footwear and whatnot!

The markets of the Rocks, Surry Hills, Rozelle, Bondi, Paddington, Glebe and Balmain are vibrant with its vast array of wares that include the special and the funky, the quirky and the odd, the casual and the ceremonial, the conventional and the bizarre…You name it, Sydney has it!

Recycled and handmade goods are the specialty of Surry Hills and Rozelle Markets. There are priceless varieties of these goods to choose from. Some of these stalls offer second-hand but exclusive stuff at steal-away prices!

Shoppers are constantly baffled by the dilemma of choosing between designs of the morrow and the reigning labels of today!

The delightful ethnic collections at the night markets of Chinatown have been a constant source of attraction for visitors.

In fact these markets are a fair reflection of the attitude, lifestyle, culture, and aesthetics of the people of Sydney!

Christmas festivities in Darling Harbour are absolutely fun, fascinating and free! The celebrations begin on November 28, Saturday. Darling Harbour will have the tallest Christmas tree in Sydney, standing magnificently tall at 21 metres.

The Family Christmas Concert will present all the popular Christmas songs, and Santa Claus’ arrival towards the finale of the concert will add to the festive fun! The lighting of the giant tree will be done by a child from Starlight Children’s Foundation during the concert. Christmas Carols by the Tree will feature the live performance of traditional carols by the city’s best a cappella groups. Spectacular fireworks over the Cockle Bay on the Christmas Eve would add magic to the splendour!

If you are thinking beyond the free entertainment of the season, Darling Harbour is ideal for its shopping and sightseeing opportunities. The place is famous for its shops that sell artefacts, semi-precious stones and other curios. The National Maritime Museum, the Power House Museum, the Sydney Aquarium and the Sydney Wildlife World are worth a visit any time of the year.

The Harbourside would be the best place to pleasantly while away your time with its cluster of shops and eating places in the setting of the harbour. Cruising around the harbour would be a better way to experience the harbour. A  showboat cruise with its total package of entertainment,  sightseeing and five-star dining experience would be your best bet for the ultimate harbour experience and total value for money!
