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.
Popular historic sites such as The Rocks and Macquarie Lighthouse are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Darling Harbour and St Thomas Becket Church. There's lots more to do: see a show at Sydney Opera House, enjoy the sand and surf at Manly Beach, explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of New South Wales, and get engrossed in the history at Hyde Park Barracks.

Manila, Philippines to Sydney is an approximately 11.5- hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Manila to Sydney due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Manila in August, expect Sydney to be cooler, temps between 22°C and 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) early enough to travel to Melbourne.
