Sydney is the jewel in Australia’s crown, sparkling with natural beauty and an infectious buzz.

The wow factor setting of Sydney Harbour with its iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House continues to draw tourists and is best enjoyed from the vantage point of the Opera Bar.

Choose your stylish Sydney accommodation from alluxia’s collection of central boutique hotels or live like a local in the many holiday houses in the hottest urban locations.  You’re more likely to find locals in inner city suburbs such as Paddington, Balmain, Darlinghurst, Newtown & Surry Hills soaking up the uber cool shopping and dining culture.

By day, hit the world famous Bondi Beach or be seen at the hippest beachside cafés. While the CBD offers plenty of shopping opportunities, head to the small laneways off Oxford Street, Paddington to discover fashion forward and up & coming labels.

By night, Sydney has a vibrant gay scene, with the best clubbing on Oxford Street.  Sydney offers world class dining, many with show stopping harbour views or settle into a hip local restaurant followed by cocktails in the hottest bars.

Sydney offers visitors a surprise at every turn, which keeps you coming back for more.
