The Harbour City
Access Language Centre is very centrally located in inner Sydney where you can find most popular tourist attractions.
In the centre of the city there is the historic waterside Rocks area, the place where Australia’s earliest European settlers lived. The area offers many restaurants, bars, cafes and shops containing Australian souvenirs. Beside the Rocks is Sydney Harbour Bridge – climb to the top and get a bird’s eye view of the city, including Circular Quay where ferries leave for stops all round the harbour, and the stunning Opera House, Australia’s most famous building. A short stroll from the Opera House are the Botanic Gardens and the Art Gallery of NSW – both well worth a visit.
Bondi, perhaps Sydney’s best known beach with its white sand and sparkling blue waves, is only a 15 minute drive
from Access Language Centre. But there are also many other beautiful beaches to visit that are not far away
from Access Language Centre. To the north, Palm Beach and Whale Beach offer great swimming and surfing, as does Manly Beach which can be reached by taking an inexpensive scenic ferry ride from Circular Quay. South of Bondi are Bronte, Coogee and Cronulla Beaches – each with its own special character.
Time for Fun
Life isn’t all outdoors in Sydney – there is also a very vibrant cultural scene, including regular art festivals that attract performers from all over the world. Staff at Access Language Centre will give you all the information about what’s on and where to go. Try to catch some traditional Australian Aboriginal dance performances and see Aboriginal art in the Art Gallery of NSW. During summer, there are many free concerts of opera and classical music held outside under the stars. For those who like the latest in music, from rock to techno and jazz, there are numerous night clubs with live bands. Many of these are in areas only minutes away from Access Language Centre.
