Beautiful beaches, beautiful people, and beautiful weather – welcome to the Zoolander of cosmopolitan cities


Consider a world where you could date the perfect combination of both Tom Hiddleston and Ryan Gosling – or take a stroll from the South Bank straight onto a gorgeously sunny, ocean-flanked beach.

Or a land where you can ask a mystifyingly Abercrombie-looking shop assistant to help you find Only Fools & Horses: The Greatest Hits Vol 2, and get only a happy face and attentive service in reply. Because that’s, in essence, what you get with Sydney.

Sure, you can strip away the romanticised ridiculousness, but for all intents and purposes, Australia’s brightest, sparkliest and most alluring city smooshes together the best bits from the US and the UK, and throws in a chilled-out, open-armed easygoingness all of its own. Throw in a whole host of stunningly beautiful beaches, a seemingly endless supply of sunshine, and a heady claim to the title of World’s Most Gay-Friendly City, and it’s easy to see why more than 100,000 people emigrate to Oz every year.

OXFORD STREET – PART DEUX While it may not be Australia’s capital – because Canberra’s just so much more... fun, exciting, beautiful... erm, anyone?! – Sydney’s the undoubted gay capital of the country. If not the hemisphere.

Get over the inevitable jet lag, made a darn sight more bearable thanks to Emirates’ roomy seating and complimentary booze trolley, and it’s a near-requisite necessity to head straight out to explore Sydney’s gaybourhood.
