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.
We've included these beaches for you: Manly Beach and Bondi Beach. Popular historic sites such as The Rocks and Justice & Police Museum are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Blue Mountains National Park (Pulpit Rock Lookout & Lincoln's Rock), Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba) and Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley). Spend the 8th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 15th (Mon) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. There's still lots to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, snap pictures at Sydney Harbour Bridge, shop like a local with Queen Victoria Building (QVB), and catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House.

Manchester, UK to Sydney is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from Manchester to Sydney due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Manchester in July since evenings lows in Sydney dip to 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can travel to Melbourne.
