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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Wentworth Falls and The Rocks Discovery Museum. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Bondi Beach and Sydney Opera House. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sydney: Jenolan Caves (in Jenolan Caves) and Day FIne Art (in Blackheath). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, stop by Darling Harbour, view the masterpieces at Australian Centre for Photography, and take in the dramatic natural features at Mrs Macquarie's Chair.

For other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Sydney itinerary planner.

Ubud, Indonesia to Sydney is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Indonesia Time (WITA) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), which is usually a 2 hour difference. When traveling from Ubud in September, plan for a bit cooler days and cooler nights in Sydney: temperatures range from 25°C by day to 14°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) so you can travel to Melbourne.
