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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sydney Opera House and The Rocks. Australian National Maritime Museum and Art Gallery of New South Wales will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of Sydney with an excursion to Canyoning & Rappelling Tours in Katoomba--about 1h 40 min away. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Darling Harbour, enjoy the sand and surf at Manly Beach, get interesting insight from Tours, and stroll through Bondi Beach.
