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 North Head Sanctuary and Norah Head Lighthouse. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Sea Cliff Bridge (in Coalcliff), Bald Hill Lookout (in Stanwell Tops) and Wollongong (Science Space & Wollongong To Thirroul Bike Track). And it doesn't end there: head outdoors with The Entrance Pelican Feed, enjoy the sea views from Barrenjoey Lighthouse, tour the pleasant surroundings at McKillop Park, and look for all kinds of wild species at Blues Point Reserve.
