Your Sydney experience wouldn’t be complete without a taking in the dramatic sandstone caves and sweeping views of the ocean along the Bondi to Coogee costal walk. You can also visit the heritage-listed Taronga Zoo where you can get close to adorable cuddly koalas or elegant giraffes and then continue north to Manly to experience the small surfer town, relaxed vibe and boutique stores.
Summer in Sydney is a wonderful time to visit - you can enjoy a scenic coastal walk from Rose Bay to Nieslon Park in Vaucluse, head for fish and chips at Watsons Bay, then see the fireworks at Darling Harbour. If you’re visiting in January be sure to grab a ticket for the open air cinema at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair or one of the music and art events which make up part of Sydney Festival. If you like being on the water, travel to Parramatta from Circular Quay by Rivercat, following Sydney Harbour as it heads west to become the Parramatta River. There are plenty of things to see and do in Sydney's West – whitewater rafting, go-karting and even car racing with professional instructors.
Take your pick of day trips from Sydney to the stunning Blue Mountains, the award-winning wineries in the Hunter Valley, the nation’s capital Canberra or south to idyllic Hyams Beach with its crisp white sand and eye-catching aqua water. Get ready to explore one of the most beautiful cities in the world when planning your Sydney itinerary..
