Truly the guides that show you what others only tell you, this book features stunning 3D and cutaway views of museums, cathedrals, and other must-see sights; detailed street maps; a handy phrase section; advice on the best places to eat, drink, shop, sleep, and be entertained; and a Survival Guide to help the traveler sort out essential information such as currency, transportation, and communications. As world traveler and TV personality Michael Palin says, "the Eyewitness Travel Guides are irresistibly seductive.... They also deliver where it matters most -- uncluttered and accurate information."

Situated on Australia's eastern coastline is the continent's largest city, and only one travel reference shows you all its attractions and charms--DK's Eyewitness Travel Guide: Sydney. The guide's six district chapters--The Rocks and Circular Quay, City Center, Darling Harbour, Botanic Gardens and The Domain, Kings Cross and Darlinghurst, and Paddington--help you navigate through each area with accurate street-by-street maps and illustrated 3-D overviews. Along the way, all the sights are covered, including the impressive Sydney Harbour Bridge, vividly captured in a two-page layout highlighted by a fascinating look in its construction, in 1932. Another architectural marvel of contemporary Sydney is the city's tallest vantage point, Sydney Tower, which is showcased in a cutaway of its turret's nine levels. The city's renowned Royal Botanic Gardens are spotlighted with a dazzling overview surrounded by photos of its monuments and attractions. Additional features showcase such sights as the National Maritime Museum, Sydney Aquarium, the Australian Museum, the Powerhouse Museum, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Four lovely guided walks lead you through historic Balmain Village, along Bondi Beach to Clovelly, around downtown Manly, and into the city's colonial past with a walk in Watsons Bay and Vaucluse. Sydney's enthralling history is fully detailed in a comprehensive chapter complete with timelines, illustrations, and photos of its remarkable ancient artifacts. Additional articles cover the city's energetic nightlife, recreational activities, scrumptious cuisine, Australian wines and much more. Full of color, excitement and appeal, Sydney is a must for anyone venturing down under, and this guide is a must for anyone who wants to see all of Sydney.
