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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Bondi Beach and Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sydney: Blackheath (Day FIne Art & Gallery Blackheath), Katoomba (Echo Point Lookout, The Three Sisters, & more) and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Dedicate the 26th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Manly Beach, get curious at Powerhouse Museum, see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

Plan my Sydney trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Manchester, UK to Sydney is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) (AEST), which is usually a 10 hour difference. Traveling from Manchester in March, expect Sydney to be much warmer, temps between 30°C and 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) early enough to travel to Melbourne.
