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: Katoomba (Blue Mountains, The Three Sisters, &more), Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge) and Wentworth Falls (in Wentworth Falls). The adventure continues: see a show at Sydney Opera House, sample the tasty concoctions at Bilpin Cider Company, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, and stroll through Bondi to Coogee Walk.

Plan my Sydney trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Cincinnati, USA to Sydney is an approximately 25-hour flight. Traveling from Cincinnati to Sydney, you'll lose 15 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Cincinnati in May, expect nights in Sydney to be about the same, around °F, while days are a bit cooler, around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) so you can travel to Melbourne.
