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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Wentworth Falls and The Giant Stairway. Venture out of the city with trips to Canyoning & Rappelling Tours (in Katoomba), Blackheath (Govetts Leap & Day FIne Art) and Terrigal Beach (in Terrigal). Dedicate the 18th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: wander the streets of The Rocks, enjoy the sand and surf at Manly Beach, hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, and stroll through Bondi Beach.

Wollongong, informally referred to as "The Gong", is a seaside city located in the Illawarra region of New South Wales, Australia. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hyams Beach and Bradman Museum & International Cricket Hall of Fame. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Wollongong: Vincentia (Blenheim Beach, Greenfield Beach, & more), Jervis Bay (Cave Beach, Nelson Beach, & more) and Eden Brewery (in Mittagong). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Nan Tien Temple, tour the pleasant surroundings at Beach Cove Belmore Basin, visit a coastal fixture at Wollongong Head Lighthouse, and kick back and relax at Cabbage Beach.
