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've now added Sea Life Sydney Aquarium to your itinerary. Explore hidden gems such as Palm Beach and Balmoral Beach, Mosman. Popular historic sites such as The Rocks and Fort Denison Island are in your itinerary. Step out of Sydney to go to Manly and see Shelly Beach, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, stroll through Coogee Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden, and catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House.
