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 find plenty of places to visit near Sydney: Eagle Rock Adventures Pty Ltd (in Katoomba) and Everglades Historic House and Gardens (in Leura). Spend the 10th (Sat) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Spend the 19th (Mon) exploring nature at Berowra Valley National Park. There's lots more to do: catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, snap pictures at Sydney Harbour Bridge, see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum, and kick back and relax at Manly Beach.

Plan my trip to Sydney with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

London, UK to Sydney is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight and bus.

Traveling from London in August, things will get little chillier in Sydney: highs are around 22°C and lows about 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Mon) so you can travel to Cairns.

Cairns

A neat, cosmopolitan city of shaded plazas and laid-back neighborhoods, Cairns serves as a popular base for exploration of the surrounding region and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as a center for watersport activities like surfing or waterskiing.
Venture out of the city with trips to Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 22nd (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, make a trip to Green Island, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge Centre, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.
