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've now added Blue Mountains Tours to your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Rocks and Sydney Opera House. Escape the urban bustle at Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk and The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk. Venture out of the city with trips to Perry's Lookdown (in Blackheath), Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (in Albion Park Rail) and Katoomba (The Three Sisters, Wentworth Falls, & more). Spend the 9th (Tue) exploring nature at Kanangra-Boyd National Park. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Darling Harbour, examine the collection at Australian National Maritime Museum, get to know the fascinating history of The National Pass, and don't miss a visit to Sydney Harbour Bridge.

For quintessential Outback scenery and culture, you can't beat a holiday in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, a World Heritage Site.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Fri): browse the exhibits of Walkatjara Art, get answers to all your questions at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, trek along Uluru Hiking Path, then explore and take pictures at Uluru, and finally hike along Kuniya Walk. Here are some ideas for day two: get great views at Uluru, admire the verdant scenery at Valley of the Winds, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Kata Tjuta.

For reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park attractions planner.

Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Sydney in July since evenings lows in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park dip to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
