Sydney — 3 nights

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.

And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, get engrossed in the history at Hyde Park Barracks, observe the fascinating underwater world at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, and go for a walk through The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk.
