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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Echo Point Lookout and Manly Scenic Walkway. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Govetts Leap (in Blackheath), Bald Hill Lookout (in Stanwell Tops) and Katoomba (Wentworth Falls & The Three Sisters). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Darling Harbour, take in the dramatic natural features at Kiama Blowhole, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, and catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House.

For maps, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Sydney trip itinerary builder .
