If there’s one city that symbolises Australia, it has to be its largest – Sydney. 

After all, it has one of the most recognisable silhouettes of all time – the distinctive sweeping shell-like rooftops of the Sydney Opera House. 

Beyond that, Sydney has many more things to offer. You can, for instance, take a boat tour of Sydney Harbour which will take you near the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. 

And if you are truly adventurous, you can climb the bridge. You’ll learn about its history along the way, and at the peak – 134m above sea level – you’ll get a breathtaking view of the harbour. 

If you want to just relax at the beach there’s Bondi Beach, a 1km stretch of beautiful beaches frequented by both tourists and locals. 

Sydney is also home to one of the best zoos in the world – Taronga Zoo – which houses more than 4,000 animals, including gorillas, sea lions and, of course, native species like kangaroos and koalas.

Once you are connected via Facebook, you will be redirected to the contest page. 

You will then be shown a series of 360° street view images located in destinations covered by U Mobile’s U Data Roam service (more on that later). 

Now drop a pin on the map where you think the street view images is from and click on “Go” – the correct answer will be shown and you will be awarded points based on how close you are to the actual location. 

If your pin is in exactly the right place, you will be awarded 150 points – less accurate answers will still receive points but based on how far your pin is from the actual location. 

Players can continue on to guess the next location until they have answered all five questions on the contest page, after which they will be shown their scores as well as the current top score. 

You can play as many times as you like, but only your highest score will be considered as an entry for the contest. 

The contest period is from now till Jan 13 and the winner will be announced two weeks after the closing date.
