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.
Explore hidden gems such as Nan Tien Temple and Whale Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Kiama Blowhole and Canyoning & Rappelling Tours. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Katoomba (The Giant Stairway & Wentworth Falls), Palm Beach (in Palm Beach) and Starfish Education Centre (in Kiama). Spend the 4th (Tue) exploring nature at Bouddi National Park. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Mary's Cathedral, explore the stunning scenery at Lincoln's Rock, contemplate the long history of First Fleet Park, and let the kids burn off some steam at Kissing Point Park.

A holiday in Port Douglas balances an activity-filled getaway with plenty of opportunities to relax, thanks to its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and bustling beach life.
Take a break from the city and head to Opal Reef and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness. Explore hidden gems such as Agincourt Reef and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary. Explore Port Douglas' surroundings by going to Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Trinity Beach (in Trinity Beach) and Barron Falls (in Kuranda). There's still lots to do: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, stop by With Sugar, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in the dramatic scenery at Alexandra Bay Waterfall.
