The Harbour City

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.
Start off your visit on the 11th (Sun): get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, then take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, then wander the streets of The Rocks, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the striking features of Sydney Opera House, go for a walk through The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk, then kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, and finally trek along Bondi to Coogee Walk.

To find maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Sydney holiday planner.
