Take a break from Sydney with a short trip to Shelly Beach in Manly, about 36 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, enjoy breathtaking views from Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck, take in nature's colorful creations at Chinese Garden of Friendship, and look for all kinds of wild species at Tambourine Bay Reserve and Warraroon Reserve Walk.
