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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Kiama Blowhole and Nan Tien Temple. Explore Sydney's surroundings by going to Leura (Leura Cascades & Everglades Historic House and Gardens), Govetts Leap (in Blackheath) and Katoomba (Wentworth Falls, Canyoning & Rappelling Tours, & more). Dedicate the 21st (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of The Rocks, trek along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, and enjoy the sand and surf at Manly Beach.
