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.
Popular historic sites such as The Rocks and Vaucluse House are in your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Bondi Beach and The National Pass. Change things up with a short trip to Wentworth Falls in Katoomba (about 1h 30 min away). There's still lots to do: enjoy some music at Sydney Opera House, stroll through Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, steep yourself in history at Justice & Police Museum, and hike along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk.
