  1. Sydney

Sydney is one of the most recognized cities in Australia. Founded in 1788, it is the largest and most populous city not only in Australia, but also in Oceania. The city is located in the southeast of Australia in the large Sydney Harbour. The city is dominated by the famous Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and its many beaches. In the metropolitan area there are some national parks with rivers and other bays.

Sydney is not only big for the country or the continent, but it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. One of the most attractive aspects of this place is the harmony between large contemporary structures and natural spaces in very good condition. If you are going to visit the Opera House, don’t forget your photo, or book a ticket to visit the interior of the auditorium.

  1. Melbourne

Among the cities of Australia, Melbourne is known to be one of the most Europeanized. This city has won the title of the most livable city in the world for several years in a row. This may be due to the fact that the people of Melbourne enjoy a high quality of life, in addition to a multicultural environment. Walking and enjoying the streets of Melbourne is one of the reasons to visit the city. Architecturally, they combine the Victorian and the contemporary. In the atmosphere, there is no shortage of music and urban art.

If you go to Melbourne, you must follow the Great Ocean Road, the 243 kilometer road that runs along the ocean and offers magnificent views. In the city, you can visit the Botanical Gardens, in the center of the city, or the St Kilda beach with its mini-penguins. Among the museums, we can’t fail to recommend the National Design Centre or the National Gallery of Victoria. In the field of culture and entertainment, you have the only audiovisual museum: ACMI or Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
