Brits in Sydney
 
For Brits, annual holidays are usually taken in Spain, France, Greece and Turkey. Some maybe take winter breaks in the Alps, others might stretch to holidays in the US or Egypt, but the vast majority stay relatively close to home. This isn’t because British people are more afraid of flying than the average country. In fact, they take more flights per person than almost anywhere else on earth thanks to a plethora of low-cost, no-frills airlines.

There must be another reason why they enjoy their time off just a few hours flight from London. Price is by far the biggest affecting factor. Flying to Australia isn’t exactly cheap, which isn’t surprising seeing as the flight from London to Sydney is around 24 hours. Plus, as there’s a seven- to nine-hour time difference depending on where you land, you need a few days to feel 100%. So a week or even two-week holiday simply isn’t enough. To do Australia any kind of justice, three to four week holidays are recommended.

The country too is massive, so anything short of three weeks means you’ll only be able to cover a very small part of the country. In such a way, it is better to do one or two places really well than skim over several places. With this in mind, basing yourself in Sydney for a two week break means you’ll get to see the insides of one of the world’s most beautiful, chic and cosmopolitan cities. You’ll also be able to travel out on daytrips to much loved areas around Sydney.

One of the best and most popular day trips from Sydney is to the Blue Mountains. You can hop on the train from Sydney Central station and be transported to a stunning, breathtaking mountain landscape where the air is remarkably fresh thanks to the eucalyptus trees that grow prevalently in the area. Rock formations such as the Three Sisters and waterfalls and tumbling streams will vie for your attention. If you are lucky you may meet wild kangaroos, however to really see them you need to go further away from civilization. The best way to explore the Blue Mountains if you only have a day is by car, so that you get to choose your own pace and get stuck into this beautiful natural wilderness.

DialAFlight offer cheap flights to Sydney from £555 including taxes, making holidays Down Under a once in a lifetime experience you can do more than once.
