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.
Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Wind Eroded Cave (in Blackheath), Pulpit Rock Lookout (in Blue Mountains National Park) and Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba).
