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 get in some beach time at Bondi Beach and Bouddi National Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Canyoning & Rappelling Tours and Coachwood Glen Nature Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Illawarra Grevillea Park (in Bulli), Shelly Beach (in Manly) and Munmorah State Conservation Area (in Lake Munmorah). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, admire the natural beauty at The Royal Botanic Garden, don't miss a visit to Sydney Opera House, and take in the awesome beauty at Pulpit Rock Lookout.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
