Complete a third course by participating in excursions to wildlife parks, state and local parliaments, art museums, beaches, and a big night out at the incomparable Sydney Opera House. You will have the opportunity to explore food, dance, film, and music festivals in one of the most diverse and sophisticated cites in the world.
