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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bondi Beach and Shelly Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Jenolan Caves (in Jenolan Caves) and Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba). There's still lots to do: trek along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Rocks, observe the fascinating underwater world at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, and listen to music at Sydney Opera House.
