Sightseeing The landmarks of Sydney are sublime in both their beauty and variety. Sydney Harbour is by far one of the most picturesque locations on Earth, as Sydney Opera House perches magnificently on the bay with Harbour Bridge and Fort Dennison. Sydney is also home to botanic gardens, museums, galleries, and cathedrals, as well as some of the most unique sandy beaches. Although, Melbourne does have its own architectural flare, particularly when it comes to iconic sporting venues. The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is a particular must-see for sports fans as the gigantic, 100,000-seat stadium has hosted momentous football games, cricket matches, and even the Olympic Games. The Verdict: Sydney is the obvious choice if you wish to experience true magnificence whilst in Australia, unless you’re a sports fan.
