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 Coogee Beach and Featherdale Wildlife Park. The Rocks and Darling Harbour are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: trek along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, browse the eclectic array of goods at Sydney Fish Market, make a trip to Queen Victoria Building (QVB), and kick back and relax at Manly Beach.

For more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Sydney journey planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Sydney. In December, daily temperatures in Sydney can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 21°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) so you can go by car to Katoomba.
