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 Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves. Take a break from the city and head to Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk and Manly Beach. When in Sydney, make a side trip to see Wentworth Falls in Katoomba, approximately 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi Beach, kick back and relax at Clovelly Beach, catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, and take a stroll through The Rocks.

For reviews, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Sydney day trip planning app .

Santiago, Chile to Sydney is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. Traveling from Santiago to Sydney, you'll lose 14 hours due to the time zone difference.
