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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bondi Beach and Canyoning & Rappelling Tours. Relax by the water at Manly Beach and Clovelly. Step out of Sydney with an excursion to Wentworth Falls in Katoomba--about 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, wander the streets of Darling Harbour, identify plant and animal life at Tambourine Bay Reserve and Warraroon Reserve Walk, and get to know the fascinating history of The Rocks.
