Sydney Holiday Property Rentals

Being such a vast country with so much to see and do, it's no wonder that Australia is such a popular holiday destination for all the family.

And with so many exciting places to visit in this amazing country, deciding on where to go on your holiday Down Under is a difficult decision.

You could head to the fantastic city of Sydney, which boasts a great selection of self catering accommodation. Australia is ideal for a property rental, whether you are planning a short or indeed a long term holiday.

Sydney has a wealth of tourist attractions to offer its visitors of all ages. One of the must-sees is Sydney Opera House. If you don't just want to view it from the outside, you can take a tour around this incredible building. Or you can book a seat and watch one of the many performances which are staged at the Opera House.

Another attraction is Sydney Harbour Bridge, which is a truly remarkable construction. If you've got a head for heights, then you can climb the bridge! There is a choice of two 3½ hour guided climbs you can do - either The Bridge Climb or The Discovery Climb.

However, if you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, Sydney has many more interesting sights to interest its visitors.

Darling Harbour, a former dockside area, is well worth a visit and has a number of attractions, including the Sydney Aquarium, Australian National Maritime Museum, Chinese Garden of Friendship and the Imax Theatre.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, meanwhile, provide a welcome retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while the kids will love Taronga Zoo.

Sydney also has a number of museums and art galleries you can visit during your vacation in Australia. There's the Art Gallery NSW, Australian Museum, Discovery Museum - The Rocks, Justice and Police Museum, Museum of Australian Currency Notes, Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Sydney, Sydney Tramway Museum and more!

Sydney also appeals to beach lovers, as it is home to the famous Bondi Beach. Not surprisingly, it is popular with tourists and is a great place to soak up the sun's rays and unwind during your holiday. There are also various events going on here, as well as entertainment, shops, restaurants and coffee shops in the area.

If you want to see the sights of Sydney from the water, you can take a boat trip on Sydney Harbour. You can board a catamaran, enjoy lunch while you're afloat and take in the fantastic views of the Sydney landmarks, such as Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Fort Denison. There are also other Sydney Harbour cruises you can do during your holiday.

After all the sightseeing in Sydney, you will no doubt want to sit down and sample some of the amazing cuisine available in the city. You will be spoilt for choice by the variety of restaurants in Sydney. Whether you fancy Indian, Thai, Chinese, Italian, or of course, Australian food, you will find it all here in Sydney.

Clearly, Sydney is a great city that is fun and a pleasure to visit and explore. Why not take a property rental in Australia? Whatever your taste and budget, you should be able to find the right accommodation to suit your needs in Sydney and indeed in other areas of Australia.
