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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Australian National Maritime Museum and Sydney Opera House. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Manly Beach and Shelly Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Everglades Historic House and Gardens (in Leura), The National Pass (in Blue Mountains National Park) and Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba). Spend the 2nd (Wed) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through The Rocks, trek along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, see the interesting displays at Hyde Park Barracks Museum, and kick back and relax at Bondi Beach.
