The Harbour City

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Wollongong Head Lighthouse and The Rocks. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Nan Tien Temple and Cremorne Point to Mosman Bay Walk. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sydney: Barrenjoey Lighthouse (in Palm Beach) and Norah Head Lighthouse (in Norah Head). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, explore the striking landscape at Mrs Macquarie's Chair, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Sydney Harbour Circle Walk.

Plan my day in Sydney using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Manila, Philippines to Sydney is an approximately 12-hour flight. Traveling from Manila to Sydney, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Manila in August, with highs in Sydney at 22°C and lows at 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Tue) so you can travel to Melbourne.

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.

Take a break from Melbourne with a short trip to Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail in Lilydale, about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Paul's Cathedral, ponder the world of politics at Parliament House of Victoria, steep yourself in history at Abbotsford Convent, and get your game on at Zero Latency.
