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 in touch with nature at The Gap Park and Prince Henry Cliff Walk. Get some historical perspective at Justice & Police Museum and The National Pass. Explore Sydney's surroundings by going to Katoomba (Odd Mountain, The Giant Stairway, &more), Leura (Everglades Historic House and Gardens, Leura Post Office, &more) and Wentworth Falls Lookout (in Wentworth Falls).
