    Sydney Opera House

    4.5
    150 reviews

    We first saw the famous Sydney Opera House (UNESCO World Heritage Site) from the Royal Botanical Gardens and then walked along the harbor towards it. It was just as magnificent as in the pictures. We took a tour of the Opera House and learned a lot about its history, design and construction. We really wanted to attend a performance there, ...

    Sydney Harbour Bridge

    4.5
    96 reviews

    It was great as one of my first things to see in Australia as the sun rose over the harbor. I did not do any of the site seeing activities on the bridge but it is quite beautiful just to see from the harbor.

    Bondi Beach

    4.5
    99 reviews

    Join the rest of the bronzed locals and soak up the rays at famous Bondi Beach - mingle with the "Bondi Beauties" (but don't disturb their coconut oil siestas) and go for a swim, catch some waves, or just work on your own tan. And once you've had your fill of it all, head on down for the gorgeous Bondi-Coogee ...

    Darling Harbour & Haymarket

    4.5
    65 reviews

    For a tourist area there are plenty of non-corny things for locals to do too. Also nicely free to people hawker giant ballons or tourist bobbles along the walk way. The Harbourside mall is a nice alternative to the somewhat chaotic Paddy's Market. The restaurants are overpriced but the open air food court is a great bet for families or ...

    Taronga Zoo is always a popular choice for children - depending on their age. Taking the ferry to the zoo from Circular Quay is a great option as you get to enjoy Sydney Harbour whilst on the ferry!

    Sydney Harbour is the most beautiful natural habour in the world. The best way to take it all in is by boat, where you can see all of Sydney's major sights. Breathtaking!

    Great Ocean Road

    4.5
    47 reviews

    Driving along the Great Ocean Road in Australia is equivalent to driving along Highway 101 in California. It's a great way to see the waves crashing along the Australian coast while driving along the windy roads. While driving, I highly recommend seeing the Twelve Apostles, a series of massive karsts scattered along the ocean shores.

    One of the singlemost beautiful geological wonders on Earth. Imposing, otherworldly, and stately - it's difficult not to be impressed by this stretch of Australian coastline!

    Great Barrier Reef

    36 reviews

    Probably the one item on everyone's travel list. This is an absolute must if you are anywhere near Australia. You can dive it with day-tour operators, live aboard cruises, and even seaplane scenic tours.

    The Rocks

    4
    38 reviews

    Take Sydney as a kind of playground, with certain neighborhoods being perfect for specific things, and you'll see why it's easy to like the Rocks. With heritage brick buildings and narrow lanes heading up the cliffs overlooking the harbour and the famous Harbour Bridge, you can't argue with the scenery, and though tourists will rightly decry its lower reaches as ...

    Sydney Aquarium

    4
    39 reviews

    Coming from San Diego, where we have an impressive aquarium of our own, I think I expected far more from this famous aquarium. Unfortunately, it didn't hold up to its reputation for me. Sure, the aquatic life is fascinating, but there weren't as many unique Australian creatures as I expected. Transparent jellyfish and seahorses were cool, as was the shark ...

    Royal Botanic Gardens

    33 reviews

    An outstanding bit of real estate bordering Sydney's inner harbour, and adjacent to Circular Quay, the opera house, and the tall buildings of the financial district, the botanical gardens form a perfect frame for the city's greatest natural resource. With endless acres of gorgeous landscaping and historic buildings, it's a place that should occupy at least a morning when combined ...

    The transport hub for the central business district. You can get buses around the city from here, including the free tourist bus, and ferries around the harbor, including to Manly, the zoo, and across to Milsons Point. There are street performers here on the weekends, and there are a myriad of sites to see in the surrounding area, including the ...

    Sky Tower

    31 reviews

    Pristine view of Auckland and surrounds. Take the elevator up and your camera. This I believe is the tallest structure in all of Auckland so you'll see everything and beyond.
