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.
Take a break from the city and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Bondi Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Manly Beach and Clovelly Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sydney: Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley), Blue Mountains National Park (Pulpit Rock Lookout, Lincoln's Rock, & more) and Charles Darwin walk (in Wentworth Falls). Spend the 3rd (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. On the 7th (Sat), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Perry's Lookdown. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through The Rocks, take in the dramatic scenery at Wentworth Falls, don't miss a visit to Sydney Harbour Bridge, and identify plant and animal life at Tambourine Bay Reserve and Warraroon Reserve Walk.
