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.
Shop till you drop at Sydney Fish Market and Queen Victoria Building. The Rocks and The Rocks Discovery Museum will appeal to history buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sydney: Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley), Logan Brae Orchard (in Blackheath) and Wentworth Falls Lookout (in Wentworth Falls). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Darling Harbour, trek along Bondi to Coogee Walk, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi Beach.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Sydney is an approximately 11-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Jakarta to Sydney due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Jakarta in December, with highs in Sydney at 32°C and lows at 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Melbourne.

There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, wander the streets of Melbourne Central, and get a taste of the local shopping with Federation Square.
