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 get in some beach time at Manly Beach and Bondi Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk and Coogee Beach. Explore Sydney's surroundings by going to The National Pass (in Blue Mountains National Park), Shelly Beach (in Manly) and Katoomba (Wentworth Falls, The Three Sisters, & more). Spend the 29th (Thu) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. The adventure continues: take a stroll through The Rocks, get interesting insight from Tours, make a trip to Sydney Opera House, and admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens.

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Shorncliffe Beach. Change things up with a short trip to King Island in Wellington Point (about 38 minutes away). There's still lots to do: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, find something for the whole family at Wheel of Brisbane, admire the natural beauty at Roma Street Parkland, and explore the activities along The Brisbane River.
