When you think of Australia, the top three images that pop into your head are the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Ayers Rock. This means that two out of three iconic images of Australia are in Sydney. It is the largest business centre and the second most favoured city to live in according to some statistics. Sydney has everything to offer, like any other world class metropolis, and it also offers a relatively mild climate. It is New York, London, Paris and Venice rolled into one, and so you cannot get it wrong when you decide on Sydney for a holiday destination.
For a travel-weary person, one of the most exciting travel options is a mystery tour. What it entails is that you sign up, and until three days before you depart, or on your way to your destination, you won’t know where you’re going. Such trips have become quite popular in recent years, especially with couples, for short weekend getaways. When and where is your next mystery weekend getaway?
