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.
Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba) and Gallery Blackheath (in Blackheath). Spend the 23rd (Sat) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at The Royal Botanic Garden, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, kick back and relax at Coogee Beach, and catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House.
