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.
Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Blackheath (Gallery Blackheath & Day FIne Art), Leura (Fortress Rock, Everglades Historic House and Gardens, & more) and Blue Mountains National Park (Lincoln's Rock & The National Pass). Spend the 22nd (Tue) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Dedicate the 2nd (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at The Royal Botanic Garden, kick back and relax at Manly Beach, see a show at Sydney Opera House, and see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum.
