Fun in the sun and whole lot in between. You'll find it all here in the greater Sydney area. From the packed beaches of Bondi to the world famous waterfront Opera House, the classic stops in the region won't disappoint. But for those looking to roam a bit farther afield, there's still plenty to choose from. Head over to the Featherdale Wildlife Park for an up-close encounter with Australia's highly unusual native wildlife -- you might just get that pic with a koala you've always wanted! If you're on the hunt for a slightly quieter, more family-oriented beach, Balmoral might be just your speed. Or throw on some hiking shoes and spend a day discovering the scenic beauty of the Blue Mountains.
Boasting over 300 days of sun per year and temperatures that rarely get too hot or too cold, Sydney is a city with no bad time to visit. The biggest crowds come during summer (December - February), especially for the many big events that take place during the season (Harbour Day, Sydney Festival, Australia Day), so if you want to snag a deal and avoid the throngs of tourists, try to plan a trip for spring (September - November) or fall (March - May).

I absolutely loved Sydney! The opera house was a once in a lifetime experience and the interpretive dance I saw there was amazing

Sydney is a diverse, booming city. I enjoyed the sights and sounds and food. Just wasn't expecting so many tourists during Christmas. Lots to do and see but save some money before heading off here.

Walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Milsons Point as the sunsets to enjoy magical photos's of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House. Make your way to the Harbour front to Luna Park and enjoy drinks and dinner at The Deck with a view to die for. The food is a bit hit and miss but for the location its good value. Take lots of fabulous photo's of the Harbour at night. Finish your evening with a stroll through Luna Park and try the ferris wheel! What a great way to see all of Sydney's Iconic sights!

Been to this lovely city once and my whole trip lingers longer than I've imagined. Sure, I'll travel back to Sydney if I have more saving for all the attractive attraction it offers. I love everything about Sydney; the food, the attraction, the buildings, the air, and the atmosphere, but I don't love the cost of life.

I don't like to be too negative, but I call it like it is. Worst city I've ever been to and I've heard that from many others. Australia in general, I just didn't like at all. I found the people to be very cold and unfriendly with a few exceptions. If I never go back I don't really care.
