No city sums up and captures the essence of modern Australia quite as well as Sydney. Halfway along the country’s south-eastern coastline, the state capital of New South Wales has long been an irresistible destination for long-haul holidaymakers thanks to a temperate, sunny climate, legendary beaches and a clutch of the world’s most instantly recogniseable landmarks. Few could argue that Sydney richly deserves its position within the "Top Ten Holiday Destinations for 2014" as compiled by, based upon holiday property enquiries and bookings received via their website in 2013.

Most holidaymakers recognise that the long flight from the UK to Sydney is amply rewarded as soon as they experience the city’s unique and exhilarating atmosphere and discover its abundant treasures. Sydney’s many beautiful beaches, which number the famous Bondi, Coogee and Manley among them, are renowned both for their surfing opportunities and for sheer relaxation.

In a city filled with unforgettable landmarks such as the UNESCO-listed Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Tower and the stunning Queen Victoria Building, visitors can also sample some of the world’s finest international and pan-Asian cuisine and enjoy beautiful public parks and gardens and a wealth of galleries, museums and other cultural attractions. And, as might be expected of one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, Sydney’s entertainment, shopping and nightlife are second to none.

The good news for anyone with a desire to experience this magnificent Australian city is that getting to, and staying in Sydney has become more affordable than ever in 2014. Return flights are now available for as little as £600 and with the value of the Australian Dollar in decline against other world currencies this is the perfect time for couples and families to take advantage of the savings offered by Sydney’s abundance of outstanding self-catering accommodation which ranges from one-bedroomed city apartments to large and luxurious family holiday homes.

With the current value of the Australian Dollar predicted to hold, or possibly drop further, renting a holiday villa or apartment in Sydney may be significantly less expensive than arranging hotel accommodation and offers the perfect base from which to explore other areas of Australia such as Melbourne or the spectacular Gold Coast.

These favourable conditions can only serve to increase Sydney’s popularity with holidaymakers in 2014, and to help Sydney holiday property owners and agents to maximise the rental potential of their apartments and homes, the UK’s foremost holiday lettings web portal, is, for a limited period, offering six months’ free advertising.

Advertisers taking advantage of a twelve month advertisement on the website will receive an additional six months advertising entirely free of charge, providing a full 18 months of promotion for their Sydney holiday property for the price of 12 months. Hurry though; this generous promotion is ending soon.
