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 some historical perspective at The Rocks and Chinese Garden of Friendship. Let the collections at Australian National Maritime Museum and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum capture your imagination. Explore Sydney's surroundings by going to Coachwood Glen Nature Trail (in Megalong Valley), Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park (in Blacktown) and Katoomba (Katoomba Antique Centre, Lost Bear Gallery, &more). Spend the 27th (Mon) exploring nature at Wyrrabalong National Park. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, take in the exciting artwork at ATTY Gallery, wander the streets of Darling Harbour, and explore the galleries of Brett Whiteley Studio.
