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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Kiama Blowhole and Shelly Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Rocks and Sydney Opera House. Take a break from Sydney with a short trip to Nan Tien Temple in Wollongong, about 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, wander the streets of Darling Harbour, take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden, and enjoy the sand and surf at Coogee Beach.
