Guest Post: Australia: Which Secluded Beaches to Visit in Sydney

Sydney, Australia’s biggest city is world famous for many things: its particular mix of cultures – from the Western to Asian to European, its iconic landmarks – like the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, its friendly, laid-back people, its amazing weather, but, maybe most of all, its beaches.
