Get a sense of the local culture at The National Pass and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Wentworth Falls and Featherdale Wildlife Park. Get out of town with these interesting Manly side-trips: Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley), Pulpit Rock Lookout (in Blue Mountains National Park) and Katoomba (Blue Mountains & The Giant Stairway). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Taronga Zoo, stop by Belle Fleur Fine Chocolates, trek along South Head Heritage Trail, and stroll through Nielsen Park.
