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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bondi Beach and Manly Beach. Let the collections at Australian National Maritime Museum and Art Gallery of New South Wales capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Katoomba (Wentworth Falls & Blue Mountains), Valley Heights Locomotive Depot Heritage Museum (in Valley Heights) and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge). Spend the 27th (Sun) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Spend the 31st (Thu) exploring nature at Berowra Valley National Park. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of The Rocks, explore the galleries of Justice & Police Museum, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, and take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden.

A neat, cosmopolitan city of shaded plazas and laid-back neighborhoods, Cairns serves as a popular base for exploration of the surrounding region and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as a center for watersport activities like surfing or waterskiing.
Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Thornton Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Daintree Discovery Centre and Historic Village Herberton. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Horses in Port, & more). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Spend the 6th (Wed) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, stroll through Wonga Beach, choose your vessel at Boab Boat Cairns, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.
