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'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Rocks Markets and Australian Opal Cutters and Pearl Divers. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Queen Victoria Building (QVB) and Birkenhead Point Brand Outlet. When in Sydney, make a side trip to see Shelly Beach in Manly, approximately 36 minutes away. Dedicate the 26th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Spend the 6th (Sat) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Darling Harbour, don't miss a visit to Sydney Harbour Bridge, take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden, and see a show at Sydney Opera House.
