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.
Explore Sydney's surroundings by going to Katoomba (Echo Point Lookout, Spooners Lookout, & more), Govetts Leap (in Blackheath) and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge). Spend the 13th (Mon) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Dedicate the 15th (Wed) 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, get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium.
