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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Blue Mountains National Park (Lincoln's Rock & The National Pass), Shelly Beach (in Manly) and Katoomba (Wentworth Falls, The Three Sisters, & more). There's lots more to do: see a show at Sydney Opera House, stroll through Manly Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Bondi Beach, and see the interesting displays at Australian National Maritime Museum.

To find photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Sydney day trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Mongolia, the closest major airport is Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport. December in Sydney sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 21°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) so you can travel to Gold Coast.

A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Sun): enjoy breathtaking views from SkyPoint Climb, then take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck, and then get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Sea World Theme Park. Here are some ideas for day two: get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, find something for the whole family at Infinity Attraction, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach.

Plan my trip to Gold Coast with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can fly from Sydney to Gold Coast in 3.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of flight and train; or drive. In January, daily temperatures in Gold Coast can reach 33°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. On the 14th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
