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.
You'll explore and learn at Australian National Maritime Museum and Brett Whiteley Studio. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bondi Beach and Manly Beach. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of The Rocks, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art, look and learn at Sydney Observatory, and take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Sydney tour builder .

Jakarta, Indonesia to Sydney is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Jakarta to Sydney. Expect cooler temperatures when traveling from Jakarta in June; daily highs in Sydney reach 21°C and lows reach 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Fri) early enough to travel to Gold Coast.

A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
Let the collections at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Gallery of Modern Art capture your imagination. You'll get in some beach time at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Burleigh Head National Park. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah) and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (in Brisbane). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, find something for the whole family at Sea World Theme Park, take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck, and take in the exciting artwork at Anthea Polson Art.

For photos, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Gold Coast trip site .

You can fly from Sydney to Gold Coast in 3.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of flight and train; or drive. In June, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Wed) to allow time for travel back home.
