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.
Step out of Sydney with an excursion to Symbio Wildlife Park in Helensburgh--about 58 minutes away. There's lots more to do: hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, explore the world behind art at Brett Whiteley Studio, and get your game on at Jet Flight Simulator Sydney.

For traveler tips, maps, photos, and tourist information, use the Sydney journey planner .

Singapore, Singapore to Sydney is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Singapore to Sydney due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Singapore in October, expect Sydney to be a bit cooler, temps between 28°C and 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel to Cairns.

Cairns

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). Spend the 20th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.
