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.
Get some cultural insight at The Rocks and Australian National Maritime Museum. Justice & Police Museum and Vaucluse House will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Katoomba (The Three Sisters & Wentworth Falls), Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge) and The National Pass (in Blue Mountains National Park). There's lots more to do: catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, see the interesting displays at Hyde Park Barracks Museum, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Thomas Becket Church.
