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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Sydney: Blackheath (Day FIne Art, Gallery Blackheath, & more), Leura (Everglades Historic House and Gardens & Leura Post Office) and Katoomba (The Three Sisters & Wentworth Falls). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, stroll through Bondi Beach, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, and take a stroll through Darling Harbour.
