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.
For shopping fun, head to Sydney Fish Market or Queen Victoria Building (QVB). You'll get in some beach time at Bondi Beach and Camp Cove. Step out of Sydney to go to Manly and see Shelly Beach, which is approximately 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, stroll through Clovelly, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, and enjoy the sand and surf at Coogee Beach.
