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.
Bring the kids along to Bondi Beach and Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sydney Fish Market and Queen Victoria Building. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley) and Pulpit Rock Lookout (in Blue Mountains National Park). There's lots more to do: catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, wander the streets of The Rocks, look for all kinds of wild species at Muogamarra Nature Reserve, and hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk.
