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.
Bring the kids along to Bondi Beach and Australian National Maritime Museum. There's still lots to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, wander the streets of Darling Harbour, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, and hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Sydney fast, fun, and easy.
