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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Manly Beach and Bouddi National Park. Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Sydney Harbour National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Shelly Beach (in Manly), Blue Mountains National Park (Lincoln's Rock & Pulpit Rock Lookout) and Katoomba (The Giant Stairway, Wentworth Falls, & more). Spend the 14th (Wed) exploring nature at Bradleys Head Trail. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, hike along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk, kick back and relax at Terrigal Beach, and meet the residents at Australian Reptile Park.
