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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The National Pass and Norah Head Lighthouse. Get some historical perspective at Sydney Harbour Circle Walk and St. James Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sydney: Lincoln's Rock (in Blue Mountains National Park), Bilpin Cider Company (in Bilpin) and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Cockle Bay Wharf, see the interesting displays at Justice & Police Museum, get to know the fascinating history of The Entrance Heritage Walk, and take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap Park.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Sydney is an approximately 11-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Jakarta to Sydney due to the time zone difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Jakarta in August, with highs in Sydney at 22°C and lows at 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Melbourne.
