From the Opera House to buskers, every taste is catered for. Restaurants are also varied and cosmopolitan in character, offering every combination of cuisine, decor and atmosphere. The environment is matched by a sunny climate without extremes which makes the most of the golden surf beaches to the north and south of the city, and the rugged mountains to the west.
