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.
Explore hidden gems such as Wentworth Falls and Canyoning & Rappelling Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sydney: Wollongong (Nan Tien Temple & Grand Pacific Drive - Sydney to Wollongong and Beyond), Leura (Everglades Historic House and Gardens & Leura Cascades) and The Giant Stairway (in Katoomba). Dedicate the 14th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of The Rocks, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, and admire the striking features of Sydney Opera House.
