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.

There's much more to do: make a trip to Sydney Opera House, kick back and relax at Camp Cove, wander the streets of Darling Harbour, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Manly Beach.
