Sydney

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.
St. Mary's Cathedral and Cremorne Point to Mosman Bay Walk will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dolphin & Whale Watching and The Giant Stairway. Venture out of the city with trips to Wentworth Falls (in Wentworth Falls), Katoomba (Canyoning & Rappelling Tours & Prince Henry Cliff Walk) and Blue Mountains National Park (The National Pass & Lincoln's Rock). There's much more to do: trek along Bondi to Coogee Walk, admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, wander the streets of The Rocks, and stroll through Manly Scenic Walkway.

To see photos, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Sydney online trip planner.
