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.
Step out of the city life by going to Manly Beach and Coachwood Glen Nature Trail. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bondi Beach and Camp Cove. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Featherdale Wildlife Park (in Blacktown) and Blue Mountains National Park (Pulpit Rock Lookout & Lincoln's Rock). Spend the 27th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of The Rocks, make a trip to Sydney Harbour Bridge, shop like a local with Queen Victoria Building (QVB), and hunt for treasures at Sydney Fish Market.
