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.
Relax by the water at Bondi Beach and Manly Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Katoomba (Canyoning & Rappelling Tours & Wentworth Falls), Shelly Beach (in Manly) and Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park (in Calga). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Featherdale Wildlife Park, let little ones run wild at Cremorne Reserve, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, and get to know the fascinating history of The Rocks.
