Sydney, one of the most populated cities in Australia and the capital of New South Wales, is a fun place to visit for a lighthearted holiday. Like most modern cities, it has everything you’ll need to relax, let loose, and have a lot of fun on your well-earned holiday.

The greatest thing about Australia is the beaches, and Sydney is no different. Bondi Beach is the most popular with its circular green space, tan sand, and splashing azure waves. However, there are plenty of places for you to tan, surf, play volleyball and swim in and around Sydney.

Melbourne is a city of art and artists. The vibrant spray-painted walls and stenciled alleys like the Hosier Lane make it look something out of a technicolor film. The street art in Melbourne is so widespread that there is a Melbourne Street Art Tour which you can book to take a closer look at the impromptu galleries popping up around the city.
