Decisions like these can’t be taken lightly if you are on a tight budget and absolutely must find that perfect deal on airfare to Sydney. Sydney is a city that is like no other in Australia, it has many truly beautiful buildings that make up its skyline, which is the largest in Australia.

Sydney’s Central Business District is Australia’s most important financial centre and contains many of Australia’s tallest skyscrapers, these include Governor Phillip Tower, named for New South Wales’ first governor Arthur Philip, the MLC Centre and the World Tower. This financial district is modelled after the city in London and is similar to lower Manhattan. But this is only one of Sydney’s districts.

It has a fantastic waterfront with a gorgeous harbour that has a wonderful Bridge that was completed and opened in 1932. The Harbour Bridge crosses from the Sydney CBD to the North Shore and makes for a stunning view of the harbour. One of the views you get is the architectural magnificence that is the Sydney Opera House. The opera house is not just one building, it’s a collection of many venues that ultimately make it one of the busiest venues in the performing arts world. Interestingly, Sydney has also been the location of many Bollywood film shoots.
