Destination Sydney

Landing in the largest city in Australia is thankfully not as intimidating as one would imagine- Sydney-Kingsford Smith International Airport is well connected to the city. Trains take you downtown every 10 minutes, and will do so in the time it takes you to skim a local daily newspaper. You could also rent a car or make use of the route 400 buses which run to and from the airport. Once in the city however, the most appropriate sight-seeing mode of transport has to be the ferry. The vantage point from the water will allow you to get some great views of the Sydney Opera House, which, let's face, is a big part of the reason why you're going.
