Sydney is the largest and probably the most famous city in Australia. The city is a popular destination. This is due to the pleasant climate, the open & tolerant atmosphere, the many sights & activities and the wonderful beaches. The city has an extensive gay scene that mainly takes place around Oxford Street in the Darlinghurst district. If possible, try to be in Sydney during the Mardi Gras. The popular beaches are Bondi Beach (on the north side) and outside the city Obelisk Beach and Lady Jane Beach.
