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.
Visiting Wentworth Falls and Speed Boats Tours will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Giant Stairway and Scuba & Snorkeling. Venture out of the city with trips to Canyoning & Rappelling Tours (in Katoomba), Shelly Beach (in Manly) and Blackheath (Wind Eroded Cave & Govetts Leap). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at North Head Sanctuary, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, walk around Sam Fiszman Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Balmoral Beach, Mosman.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Sydney day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 31°C in February, and nighttime lows around 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Calga.
