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.
Step out of the city life by going to Manly Beach and Bondi Beach. Shop till you drop at Sydney Fish Market and ATTY Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Blue Mountains National Park (Pulpit Rock Lookout & Anvil Rock Lookout), Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley) and Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba).

There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Darling Harbour, see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
