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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Bondi to Coogee Walk and Darling Harbour. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Leura (Fortress Rock, Everglades Historic House and Gardens, &more), Blue Mountains National Park (The National Pass, Grand Canyon track, &more) and Katoomba (Peace Memorial, Lady Darley Lookout Track, &more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through The Rocks, take in the pleasant sights at The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk, catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Manly Beach.

For where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read our Sydney online travel planner.
