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.
Get some cultural insight at Sydney Opera House and The Rocks. Get outdoors at Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk and Speed Boats Tours. Change things up with a short trip to Wentworth Falls in Katoomba (about 1h 30 min away). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Darling Harbour, take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Balmoral Beach, Mosman, and trek along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk.
