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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Canyoning & Rappelling Tours and Wentworth Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Blue Mountains National Park (The National Pass & Lincoln's Rock), Bilpin Cider Company (in Bilpin) and Govetts Leap (in Blackheath). Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap Park, make a trip to Sublime Point Lookout, and see a show at Sydney Opera House.

Plan my trip to Sydney with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Newark, USA to Sydney is an approximately 27-hour flight. Traveling from Newark to Sydney, you'll lose 15 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Newark in November; daily highs in Sydney reach 77°F and lows reach 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Melbourne.
