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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at The Rocks and Brett Whiteley Studio. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sydney Fish Market and Queen Victoria Building. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Leura (Leura Mall & Everglades Historic House and Gardens), Falls Gallery (in Wentworth Falls) and Blue Mountains National Park (Lincoln's Rock, The National Pass, & more). Spend the 17th (Thu) exploring nature at Kanangra-Boyd National Park. On the 25th (Fri), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Perry's Lookdown. There's much more to do: stroll through Manly Beach, hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, snap pictures at Sydney Harbour Bridge, and admire the striking features of Sydney Opera House.
