Spend the 19th (Sun) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Dedicate the 1st (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Rocks, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden, and enjoy the sand and surf at Bondi Beach.
