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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Nan Tien Temple and Sydney Opera House. Get some historical perspective at The Rocks and The National Pass. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Katoomba (The Giant Stairway, Canyoning & Rappelling Tours, & more), Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (in Albion Park Rail) and Shelly Beach (in Manly). On the 16th (Mon), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Perry's Lookdown. Spend the 18th (Wed) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Manly Beach, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, kick back and relax at Coogee Beach, and trek along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk.
