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.
Take a break from the city and head to Kiama Blowhole and Terrigal Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Shelly Beach and Avalon Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sydney: Nan Tien Temple (in Wollongong) and Katoomba (Wentworth Falls & Blue Mountains). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Australian National Maritime Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Mary's Cathedral, look and learn at Sydney Observatory, and kick back and relax at Clovelly.

For where to stay, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, read our Sydney trip itinerary planner .

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Sydney. In April, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Brisbane.
