Sydney is the largest city in Australia, a vibrant destination with a welcoming cosmopolitan atmosphere. Whilst not the capital, Sydney is perhaps Australia’s most famous city and home to instantly recognisable landmarks like the Sydney Opera house. Sydney is distinctly modern, but visitors will also discover a destination surrounded by natural beauty, miles of coastline and golden sandy beaches. As well as being a famous tourist hotspot, Sydney is a key economic centre (the most important in Australia), specialising in industries as diverse as manufacturing and tourism.
One of the busiest airports in the world, London Heathrow is at the very epicentre of the international air transport network. Investment has been poured into its development, and in 2014 the newly constructed Terminal 5 was voted World's Best Airport Terminal in the Skytrax Annual World Airport Awards.
Handling more than 73 million passengers a year, London Heathrow is a remarkable feat of logistical organisation. Fly from London Heathrow with Qatar Airways to a wide range of destinations all over the world.
Transportation and parking
London Heathrow is served by the London Underground ‘tube’ service, making it easy to reach in just half an hour, from the very centre of London. For passengers with Qatar Airways flying from Terminal 4, the terminal has its own dedicated tube station.
There are also hundreds of buses every day from the capital, and coach services transporting passengers from all over the city to the airport. Parking is at a premium, and although there are both short and long-term options, it is best to book parking in advance. A valet service is available. Note that there is a 2.6-metre height restriction on Terminal 4’s forecourt.
Arriving at London Heathrow
Flights from London Heathrow with Qatar Airways leave from Terminal 4, which is located at the south end of the southern runway, and is connected to Terminals 1, 2 and 3 by the Heathrow Cargo Tunnel.
Qatar Airways flights from London Heathrow make use of the very latest A380 airbuses in their service to Doha, as well as a luxury Business Class-only service using a modern A319 for one of its six daily flights to Doha. Passenger boarding gates are situated close to the check-in and security halls.
Amenities and facilities
Because of its international importance, London Heathrow offers a vast array of facilities and amenities, from baby care and children’s crèches, to shoeshine services, banking, Wi-Fi access and prayer rooms.
A broad selection of luxury retail outlets stock the very best in accessories, watches, jewellery and fashion, while a number of outstanding restaurants, eateries and snack bars serve everything from full meals to light bites.
Despite what most people think, Sydney is not actually Australia’s capital, but is probably its most iconic and instantly recognisable one, thanks to exceptional monuments such as the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
Modern, thriving and continually expanding, Sydney is the powerhouse of Australia and one of the most vibrant cities on the Pacific Rim.
Book a flight to Sydney with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover that it’s also a centre for the arts, music and theatre, with an incredibly relaxed and laid-back atmosphere for such a large metropolis.
Warm and friendly people welcome visitors with open arms, and its business sector is innovative and progressive, making it an excellent destination for business travellers too.
Top of the list has to be the Sydney Opera House. It sits on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and adjacent to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens.
It is in fact a collection of venues that host 1,500 performances every year, attracting over a million visitors from around the world. From opera to modern dance, theatre to mime, this is the cultural heart of the city.
Many of the city’s landmarks are clustered around the harbour, and an excellent and very relaxing way to see them is to take a ferry east from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo or Manly, or west under the Harbour Bridge towards Parramatta.
This will also give you a great view of the harbour itself.
The city is famous for its museums, and visitors can choose from the Australian Museum, which has extensive exhibits covering Australia’s unique flora and fauna, through to the interactive Powerhouse Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
To find out more about Australia’s First Nation people, head to the Royal National Park where you’ll find Aboriginal rock carvings, or take a guided interpretative walk at Berry Island.
