Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
You'll get in some beach time at Bondi Beach and Manly Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at The Rocks and Hyde Park Barracks Museum. Go for a jaunt from Sydney to Blacktown to see Featherdale Wildlife Park about 46 minutes away. Spend the 14th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Sydney Fish Market, look for gifts at Belle Fleur Fine Chocolates, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, and pick up some local products at The Rocks Markets.

To plan Sydney vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
