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.
Sydney is known for nightlife, trails, beaches, parks, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get to know the fascinating history of The Rocks, snap pictures at Sydney Harbour Bridge, see a show at Sydney Opera House, and kick back and relax at Manly Beach.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Sydney vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

New York City, USA to Sydney is an approximately 26-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and train. You'll lose 15 hours traveling from New York City to Sydney due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in March, expect Sydney to be much hotter, temps between 79°F and 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) to allow time to drive to Katoomba.
