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.
Attractions like Bondi Beach and Australian National Maritime Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of Sydney to go to Manly and see Shelly Beach, which is approximately 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of The Rocks, meet the residents at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, and hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk.
