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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Historical Aircraft Restoration Society and Darling Harbour. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bronte Beach and HARS Aviation Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Sydney Tramway Museum (in Loftus) and Appleshack at Glenbernie Orchard (in Darkes Forest). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at South Cronulla Beach, take in panoramic vistas at Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck, and see the interesting displays at Hyde Park Barracks Museum.
