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.
Visit The Rocks and Wollongong Head Lighthouse for their historical value. Nan Tien Temple and Sydney Opera House are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley), Lincoln's Rock (in Blue Mountains National Park) and Katoomba (Wentworth Falls, The Giant Stairway, & more). Spend the 5th (Fri) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. Next up on the itinerary: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, look for all kinds of wild species at North Head Sanctuary, and see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum.
