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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bondi Beach and Clovelly Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Manly Beach and Sydney Harbour National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Shelly Beach (in Manly) and Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Darling Harbour, get to know the fascinating history of The Rocks, trek along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk, and take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
