Sydney
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Green Point Reserve. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Rocks and Sydney Opera House. When in Sydney, make a side trip to see Shelly Beach in Manly, approximately 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Manly Beach, make a trip to Sydney Harbour Bridge, take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden, and look for gifts at DUX Collection Sydney.

Leura

Leura is a suburb in the City of Blue Mountains local government area that is located west of the Sydney central business district in New South Wales, Australia. Escape the urban bustle at Canyoning & Rappelling Tours and Wentworth Falls. Change things up with a short trip to The Three Sisters in Katoomba (about 1h 25 min away). On the 10th (Thu), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Perry's Lookdown. There's much more to do: explore and take pictures at Pulpit Rock Lookout, admire the natural beauty at Everglades Historic House and Gardens, look for all kinds of wild species at Logan Brae Orchard, and get to know the fascinating history of The National Pass.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Leura trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Traveling by car from Sydney to Leura takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In January, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) early enough to drive back home.
