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.
Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Thu): take a stroll through Darling Harbour, then wander the streets of The Rocks, and then admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri): explore the striking landscape at Mrs Macquarie's Chair, kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, then snap pictures at Sydney Harbour Bridge, then make a trip to Sydney Opera House, and finally trek along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk.

Plan my Sydney trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport. January in Sydney sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 23°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to travel to Melbourne.
