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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bondi Beach and Nature & Wildlife Tours. The Rocks and Justice & Police Museum will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Darling Harbour, hunt for treasures at Sydney Fish Market, don't miss a visit to Sydney Opera House, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

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

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major aiport is Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Sydney can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 14°C. On the 17th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Melbourne.
