The 2000 Sydney Summer Games changed the face of the Olympic Village forever. That was the year that, well, the athletes set the standard condom order at 100,000. What a time to be alive…and what better place to get your holiday on! Book cheap flights to Sydney and you’ll also discover world-famous landmarks, adrenaline-pumping adventures and entertainment that goes all night long.
Getting Around Sydney
Flights to Sydney Airport (SYD) land just 8km from the city centre, and the Airport Link train can get you there in about 15 minutes. Even easier: The bus, ferry and light rail can take you pretty much anywhere else. One and done.
When You Land…
There’s no better way for early birds to get acquainted with Sydney than a walk across one of its most iconic landmarks—no, not the Opera House. The Harbour Bridge! Not feeling it? Grab a coffee and chill out in The Rocks neighbourhood instead.
Getting in on arvo Sydney flights? Take the bridge exploration to another level with BridgeClimb Sydney. At the top of the world, this is one photo that’s sure to get tons of likes.
Those arriving on evening flights have some choices to make. If you drank a ton of coffee on the plane and have some energy to burn, the clubs and bars near Cockle Bay Wharf are ready for you. Rather just chill out? Hop off the train at Central Station and relax in Surry Hills.
Live Like a Local
If you know what a Sunday session is, you’re already halfway to being a local. This tradition of Sunday afternoon drinks is strong in Sydney (as is the taking of the Monday sickie). Book Sydney hotels near Bondi Beach, put on your thongs and drink the day away, Sydneysider-style.
The legends of the 2000 Summer Olympics are just the start of all the things you’ll discover on holidays to Sydney. Book with lastminute.com.au today and say goodbye to email and meetings—we’ll see you there!
