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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk and Manly Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Rocks and Sydney Opera House. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sydney: Katoomba (The Three Sisters & Wentworth Falls). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Clovelly Beach, and hike along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk.

Plan my Sydney trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

San Francisco, USA to Sydney is an approximately 17-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of bus, shuttle, and flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales), which is usually a 18 hour difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from San Francisco in November, with highs in Sydney at 77°F and lows at 62°F. On the 29th (Fri), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Auckland.
