Overview

Australia is the largest island in the world and is located in the Southern Hemisphere. It is the smallest among the continents of the world. Australia is a well-loved tourist destination and millions of visitors head there every year to spend languid summer months and enjoy the spectacular sand kissed beaches. Australia Tourism is one of the leading industries in the country. The landscape of Australia is essentially a low plateau; central Australia being sand desert regions and the southeast having fertile pains. Australia Climate is generally equitable and tourists flock to the country all round the year. Sydney, Australia's gateway city and the capital of New South Wales (and the site for the 2000 Olympics) is built around one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, and along kilometres of golden beaches stretching north and south of the city on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.Sydney is a friendly city offering visitors a variety of attractions and activities. The beaches and harbour play a major role in the lives of Sydney-siders with yachting, surfing, sailboarding, swimming and water-skiing available. Many national parks and protected areas of natural bushland surround the city, and the picturesque Blue Mountains are a 90 minute journey from the city, offering walking, camping and picnicking as popular pastimes for visitors and residents alike. Perhaps Sydney's most famous landmark is the spectacular Opera House with its graceful 'sails'. The Opera House has become Sydney's cultural centre, offering opera, ballet, concerts, drama and film.The harbour foreshore is home to the historic Rocks area, the site of Australia's first European settlement in 1788, and now home to a variety of galleries, museums, restaurants and shops. Also overlooking the harbour are the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Aquarium and Taronga Zoo.
Now Sydney is a 'must see' on many a traveller's itinerary and once you've visited, you'll understand exactly why

SYDNEY — Australia is hoping to double the number of Chinese visitors to the country by 2020.  This week a delegation from Tourism Australia, a state-run agency, has been meeting Chinese investors, airline executives and government officials.More tourists visit Australia from China than from any other country apart from New Zealand.Chinese travelers spent $102 billion worldwide last year, according to the United Nation’s World Tourism Organization, and Australia is keen to cash in on a booming industry.
 
 
Andrew McEvoy, the managing director of Tourism Australia, says more needs to be done to boost the numbers of Chinese visitors.“Look, China is our fastest growing market. It's already our highest value market - almost 700,000 Chinese visitors spending in excess of AUD$ 4.5 billion [USD  $4.1 billion].  I think we're still a long way from being completely China ready but there are a lot of steps being taken and I would argue that the tourism industry is better geared than most industries to welcome Chinese engagement," said McEvoy.

Tourism Australia officials this week signed a three-year agreement with Air China to increase the number of flights into Australia.  The airline is the only carrier to operate a direct service between Beijing and Sydney.
 
Other industry groups are also helping holiday companies cater to the Chinese market.The managing director of Tourism Accommodation Australia, Rodger Powell, says even small measures can make a difference.“It is really a matter of paying attention to the little things. Welcome letters for Chinese guests in Chinese language, kettles and teapots in the rooms and teacups and a selection of teas, specific local snacks and beverages. Some hotels are offering Chinese satellite news, Chinese newspapers available on request," said Powell.
 
Australia is also keen to attract Chinese gamblers, but faces competition from Macau, the world's largest gambling destination, and the Philippines.Then there is an ambitious proposal to build a Chinese theme park north of Sydney, Australia’s biggest city.  The local authority in coastal Wyong is exploring plans by a Chinese businessman to build a $480 million tourist attraction that will include a full-size replica of Beijing's Forbidden City and a nine-story temple housing a giant Buddha.Officials predict the bold venture, which is due to start construction next year, will attract millions of Chinese tourists.
 
 
Destination NSW had invited Stephen Dupont, a well-known Australian photographer, to run the Reportage festival (25 May-13 June) under the umbrella of the Vivid Sydney public arts event. But days before the three-week festival opened, Sandra Chipchase, the agency’s chief executive, told him to remove images from a screening that was to take place in Circular Quay because they were “not in keeping with the values of the event”. Work by around half of the 35 featured photographers was affected.
 
“Vivid Sydney is a family-friendly event,” Chipchase said in an official statement. According to local media, she said that some of the images were threatening to families. “What we don’t want is children walking around the corner and seeing pictures of dead children,” she was quoted as saying.Chipchase said that she had contractual rights to veto images included in Reportage, and that all the content deleted from the screening could still be seen in other, enclosed, venues. 
 
Dupont and the other photographers were puzzled by Chipchase’s deletions. Pictures of fire-ravaged bushland by Andrew Quilty were taken out, although they showed no damage to people or structures. Images by another Australian photographer, Conor Ashleigh, of a family living a bush lifestyle were also removed, although there was no nudity or graphic violence, Dupont said.
