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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Blue Mountains National Park (Lincoln's Rock & The National Pass), Katoomba (Echo Point Lookout, The Three Sisters, & more) and Leura (Everglades Historic House and Gardens & Elysian Rock Lookout). Spend the 3rd (Thu) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Dedicate the 12th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through The Rocks, get interesting insight from Tours, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, and snap pictures at Sydney Harbour Bridge.
