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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk and Wentworth Falls. Your inner history buff will appreciate The Rocks and St. Mary's Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Terrigal Beach (in Terrigal), The Entrance Pelican Feed (in The Entrance) and Shelly Beach (in Manly). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Tamarama Beach, explore the striking landscape at Mrs Macquarie's Chair, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi Beach, and explore and take pictures at The National Pass.

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
We've included these beaches for you: Brighton Beach and Eastern Beach Reserve. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Dandenong Ranges National Park and William Ricketts Sanctuary. Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Frankston Beach (in Frankston), Bells Beach (in Torquay) and Split Point Lighthouse (in Aireys Inlet). There's more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Patrick's Cathedral and take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck.
