Sydney 6 Days Itinerary: Bondi Beach to the Blue Mountains

Sydney Travel Itinerary

Are you planning a trip to Sydney? If so, here is our Sydney 6 days itinerary for your ultimate Sydney experience. You’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Bondi and coastal walks in Sydney’s northern suburbs, as well as the magnificent blue mountains. This itinerary will help you see everything Sydney has to offer!

Sydney is, without a doubt, the most amazing city I’ve ever lived in. I enjoy going out and discovering new things every chance I get. Incredible coastal walks, hidden little beaches, UNESCOWORLD heritage sites, and some of the most stunning sunsets you’ll see are all available.

It’s doubtful that six days in Sydney is enough to discover everything this magnificent metropolis has to offer, but it’s a good start. Many travelers begin their journey in Sydney and then head up the coast, so they don’t have much time to see everything.

I have prepared this comprehensive Sydney 6-day itinerary to provide you with the greatest of everything that Sydney has to offer. I’ll go through all of your favorite activities, places to visit, and useful Sydney travel hints.

Sydney 6 days itinerary

For this itinerary, I have made the assumption that you will be staying in Sydney CBD. Underneath we will dive into the first day immediately. 

Views from the Sydney Pylon Lookout


You’re probably a tourist if you’ve come to Australia. On your first day, you should see some of Sydney’s most famous sites! So, what could be better than beginning with the Sydney Opera House, then visiting the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and finishing up in the city’s oldest neighborhood?


If you’re staying in the CBD then put on your walking shoes and wander over to Circular Quay. Just follow one of the two main streets (Pitt Street or George Street).  If you’d like you can take a re-route through Hyde-park.

If you stay on the main street you will walk past the Queen Victoria Building (on George Street) which is worth a detour. Additionally, you will come past Sydney’s Tower Eye (an Observation Deck) so there are already tons of amazing things to explore!


Immediately when you walk into Circular Quay you will see two of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks. The Opera House as well as the Harbour Bridge.

One of the most iconic Sydney Instagram moments that you can get is of the Opera House. Pretty much everywhere you go there are great photo ops of this Sydney Icon. Walk around the harbour, sit down for a drink or nibble on some ice cream and enjoy this unique view. Do keep in mind that the prettier the view the more expensive the restaurants get!

Sydney 6 days itinerary | The Sydney Opera House at Circular Quay


Keep walking up all the way to the Opera House. On your right, you will see the Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney. They are free to enter and offer some relaxation within the cities hustle and bustle.

They also offer some really amazing views of the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. Just follow the water’s edge to Mrs. Macquarie’s Point.

Sunset seen from the Royal Botanic Gardens


Next on the list is Sydney’s oldest neighbourhood the rocks. This can be found next to Circular Quay and is within walking distance of the Opera House. Since it is lunchtime, I will give you some of our favourite restaurants/pubs within the rocks:

  • Pony Dining The Rocks ($$$)
    Buzzy, a rustic-chic venue with an open kitchen, for Modern Australian cuisine and sharing plates.
  • Saké Restaurant  ($$)
    Vibrant, rustic-chic dining room serving inventive sushi and sashimi, plus clever cocktails.
  • Munich Brauhaus The Rocks ($$)
    Festive beer hall with live music, serving imported beers and German dishes like pork schnitzel. (I would say that this is my favourite restaurant in Rocks) 
  • El Camino Cantina The Rocks ($)
    Tex-Mex restaurant 
  • Pancakes On The Rocks ($$)
    Long-running diner chain is known for sweet and savoury pancakes, plus pizza, ribs, and brekkie – so pretty much everyone will find something suited to their needs here. 
  • Phillip’s Foote ($$)
    Traditional Australian steaks and pies in a 2-story colonial building with courtyard seating.

After lunch, it is time to explore The Rocks. This amazing and old neighbourhood is filled with historic laneways in the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge.

If you are an art lover then head to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).

On the weekend you can stop at The Rocks Markets (10 am to 5 pm). They offer a fantastic opportunity to shop for uniquely Australian gifts and one-of-a-kind souvenirs. From art to clothing and standard souvenirs. Just a bit more unique than normal.


Walking over the bridge is a free experience that you can and should do! The best access point is the Bridge Stairs on Cumberland Street in The Rocks.

You will be walking on the right side, which is closest to the Sydney Opera House. This walk will offer some amazing harbour views along the way.

When you reach the pillars, head inside and climb the stairs to the Pylon Lookout. The Sydney Pylon lookout is massively overlooked and comes with 360-degree views of the whole of Sydney Harbor! say what! that’s right……

You will spend about 30-45 minutes here, probably depending on the weather.

The admission is as follows (As per April 2019)

General Admission (13 years and over) $15.00
Concession (Seniors & Student) $10.00
Children (5 to 12 years, inclusive) $8.50
Children (4 years and under) FREE  (woohoo!)


Continue on with the bridge walk and head to the other side of the harbour. This suburb is called Milsons Point.

Here you have some pretty wicked vantage points. Some cool ones you should check out:

  • Wendy’s secret Gardens
    It offers some amazing views of Lavender Bay, Luna Park, and the Harbour Bridge.
  • Broughton St Lookout
    Great place to take photos for the harbour and city skyline. Offers amazing Opera House views.
  • Jeffrey Street Wharf
    The best spot to photograph Sydney’s most iconic landmarks, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. This wharf no longer used and to catch a ferry need to walk around to the Luna park wharf.
Lavender Bay, Sydney
Lavender Bay, Sydney


Another thing on your Sydney bucket list should be a quick visit to the Iconic Luna Park. Luna Park Sydney is a heritage-listed amusement park that takes you back to the olden age. It is similar to Cooney Island in New York. Lots of fun older types of attractions and games.

The entree to the park is free, so if this is not your thing, just wander over it and take a couple of pics. If you wish to do a couple of attraction, then just head to the kiosk and buy a couple of tickets.

You can grab a bit to eat here are well if you are hungry after walking around all day.


Depending on how your feet are feeling you can either walk back to your hotel by crossing the bridge again, but this time after dark. This allows you to capture the Opera House at night from the bridge.

If your feet can not handle another walk, then just hop on the train at Milsons Point Station and head home.

DAY 2 | Explore Bondi Beach 

On day two of this 6-day Sydney itinerary, you should head to Australia’s most famous beach, Bondi Beach. Bondi beach shot to ‘stardom’ due to the immensely popular reality show Bondi Lifeguards.

Don’t wear just thongs(flip flops) to this beach though, cause you will also be walking a couple of k’s along with its ridiculously beautiful coastline.


Since Bondi Beach is such a popular destination, there is a very regular service towards the beach and back (Pretty much every 10 minutes)

Getting there | All buses from the city start from Circular Quay and the ride to Bondi Beach takes 45 minutes. The starting point is in Alfred Street, close to ferry wharf number 2. The bus may be numbered 380 or 333 with the destination showing North Bondi, Dover Heights, Watsons Bay or Bondi Beach. Collectively this is called “the 380 bus” and all buses go to Bondi Beach.


Once you get to Bondi beach, just start exploring! This hipster part of Sydney offers a lot of cool shops, delicious restaurants and of course that famous beach.

Some shops you should definitely check out when in Bondi:

Naomi Levi  | 52 Hall Street | Bondi Beach NSW 2026
beautiful boho clothing made from quality materials. From stunning flowy dresses to cute tops and some jewellery this store has it all.

Mezi Australia | 1/9 Hall St | Bondi Beach NSW 2026
I am not sure if this is a chain store, but I have never seen it before. A stunning jewellery shop. Not the cheapest you will ever find, but it has some really beautiful jewellery.

Please check if these restaurants are still operating when you are travelling to Bondi. They change very often, so I don’t want you to be disappointed when they are permanently closed. These are some restaurants that I tried on a trip in December 2018.

Bondi Hardware | 39 Hall St |  Bondi Beach NSW 2026
I had late lunch here when I arrived on the Friday right after checking in. I loved the food and the atmosphere. It describes themselves as having inventive bistro food and cocktails in a funky, rustic-chic restaurant with a leafy courtyard.

Sean’s Panorama | 270 Campbell Parade | Bondi Beach NSW 2026
A cozy space with eclectic decor, a passionate and attentive wait staff, and top-notch food. I really loved it here. Their dishes are seasonal and fresh and absolutely delicious.

Sydney 6 days itinerary | A trip to Sydney is not complete without a trip to Bondi Beach and checking out the famous lifeguard tower


The Bondi to Coogee coastal walk is probably one of the most iconic walks that you can do in Sydney (or maybe even in Australia). Following the rough cliffs along the ocean with stunning views all over, 6 of the most famous/beautiful beaches and Australian wildlife surrounding you all along the way.

Pick up the trail behind Icebergs, at the far end of Bondi Beach. The trail winds along the coast, with plenty of up and down to sneak in your cardio, but your reward is the stunning coastal views, rock pools and many beaches you’ll come across along your way. You can choose your own adventure and turn back or hop on a bus at different locations throughout the walk. Try to stick it out to the end though, cause it is worth it.

I have written an encompassing guide on this walk. Click here for more information. 

I advise you to buy some food along the way in one of the many supermarkets located near Bondi Beach. Take it with you and along the coast, when hungry take a seat, enjoy the scenes and just nibble away with your brought lunch.

For this itinerary, I am going to assume that it is beach weather and that during your walk you will be stopping and swimming a couple of times. If you just walk this route it will take you about 2.50 hours. If you go for a swim etc I am estimating that all in all, it will take you 5 hours.

The walk ends at Coogee beach.


At this point in the day, I am sure you probably going to need some food. The best place to go in my opinion is the Coogee Pavillion.  The perfect place to hang out, chill and enjoy some sturdy food. 

From Coogee Beach, there is a direct bus back to the city.

DAY 3 | Hike the Blue Mountains

The blue mountains are a stunning National Park that should not be missed on your trip to Sydney.  They are located about a 1.30-2-hour trip from Sydney CBD. There are many ways that you can explore the mountains:

  • Rent a car
  • Take an organized tour
  • Take public transport

I have done all three of these options and each has its own good points. From being cheap and independent (Train) to a tad more expensive but you get to go wherever you want (Rental) to fully organized and see all the highlights in comfort (Organized tour). So depending on your budget and your level of adventure you can choose what you prefer best.

For this itinerary, I have opted to give you a guide for when you would have rented a car for the day.


In the morning, pick up your rental and made your way to Katoomba.


The Three Sisters are an unusual rock formation that can be seen from Echo Point in Katoomba, and it also offers some pretty spectacular views of the blue mountains.

The three sisters are a popular stopping point because of a famous Aboriginal legend. The legend goes that three sisters ‘Meehni’, ‘Wimlah’ and Gunnedoo’ lived in the Jamison Valley as members of the Katoomba tribe. They fell in love with 3 brothers from another tribe, but their love was forbidden. They were forbidden to marry, but in order to protect them, they were turned into stone. The witch doctor who cast the spell was killed in battle and therefore they are still cast in stone today – oooooo.

This is one of the main stops of tour buses, so be prepared that you are not alone here. The town itself (Katoomba) is pretty cool with lots of little shops and restaurants.  In order to escape the crowds, drive on to Blackheath for a lunch with a view. Along the way pick up some lunch from one of the supermarkets located in the town.

Sydney 6 days itinerary | Three sisters, Katoomba


Definitely time for lunch, but instead of diving into a restaurant, head to the Evans lookout which is only 15 minutes from Katoomba. There are 2 picnic tables as well as some sort of seating that you can… sit on.

The perfect place just to ponder life whilst nibbling on your food. I would say this beats a restaurant anytime!

Sydney 6 days itinerary | Blackheath, Blue Mountains


After filling up and some zen time it is time to hop back in your car and drive to the Blue Mountains cutest little town, Leura. Filled with lovely cute shops, restaurants, and museums.

Head to the Leura Cascades Circuit Walk. Following Leura Creek down to a beautiful small waterfall, this is one of the prettiest short walks in the Leura area. Sit under the overhang and watch as the falls cascade down around you, then climb to great views of the Leura cliff line, before this circuit track leads back to the park. The walk is only 844 meters and takes about 30 minutes. There are quite a few steps, so it is a moderate track. So beware.

I love Wentworth Falls. I don’t know what it is about this place, but it never ceases to amaze me. Drive to Wentworth Falls Lookout, for some stunning mountain views.

Sydney 6 days itinerary | Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains


One of the easiest locations to see kangaroos is at Eureka campground in Glenbrook National Park. This national park is located just outside of Glenbrook, one of the first towns in the blue mountains. It is only a 20-minute detour from the main road, so totally doable. You definitely do need a car, so if you are travelling by public transport then I advise you NOT to do this.

The drive to the campground was not too difficult, but there are some unpaved roads.

There is a park fee of $ 8,- when entering the national park. However, when we got there the booths were closed and we could just keep on driving. So, if you come earlier in the day you might have to pay. Additionally, the park closes at 7 pm, so make sure you get there on time.

Sydney 6 days itinerary | Checking out wild kangaroos at Glenbrook, Blue Mountains. An awesome spot to see some Aussie wildlife

The campground is surrounded by virtually untouched eucalypt forests and is, therefore, home to lots of Australian wildlife.

The best time to go is early in the morning or a bit later in the evening when the animals are more active. We arrive at the ground at 6 pm and found lots of activity. Some eastern Grey Kangaroo’s where grazing the fields, kookaburras were laughing their heads off, cockatoos were enjoying dinner and a family of ducks was wandering around the grounds.

We stayed here for about 30 minutes because we had to leave the park before it closed. After spotting the cute kangaroos we had enough for the day and headed home. It is quite a long day, so I doubt that you have enough energy to head out in the evening after this.

We stayed in and just cooked dinner. All that fresh air really makes you tired!

DAY 5 | Swim at Manly Beach

On the fifth day in Sydney, after all that walking, I think it is time for a bit of a quiet day. Travel to Manly with the Ferry. This trip is absolutely lovely and offers some incredible views along the way!


Hop on the ferry at Circular Quay (Ferry wharf 3) The ferry goes over 30 minutes and takes 20 minutes to get there.


Manly is one of Sydney’s best surf spots, so you will find a lot of surfer dudes and dudettes, surfing stores and clothing stores with their main target audience the surfer dudes. Because of this, Manly breaths an atmosphere of chill and calmness. 

Wander the streets and do some shopping in some boutique stores or attempt to surf in the break waves of the beach. 


Walk from Manly Beach to Shelly Beach and enjoy the stunning ocean scenery. This is a short fifteen-minute walk which begins at the Manly Surf Club at the south end of Manly Beach.  The Cabbage Tree Bay Eco-Sculpture Walk hugs the coastline all the way to Shelly Beach. Gain insight into Cabbage Tree Bay’s unique marine life, plants, animals, history and attractions through eleven unique sculptures along the way.


During the walk, you will bump into The Bower Manly and grab some lunch when there. They offer delicious food and outdoor terrace offering views of the reserve.


Next up: A spot a lot of tourists do not go to, Q station! Q station is a former Quarantine Station for migrants arriving in Australia. It is now known as one of the most haunted locations in Australia.

If you can visit this location at night, then go for it! They have some amazing Ghost tours! But even during the day this is an amazing historic building and is worth stopping by.

IMPORTANT NOTE: at 2 pm on Saturday and Sunday there is an incredible tour called the Quarantine Station Story.
Time: 2pm – 4pm Saturday & Sunday
Duration: 2 hours
Price: $35 adult / $29 concession / $25 child (15 & under)

There is also a visitor centre that has thousands of artifacts unique to North Head Quarantine Station.

Sunday – Thursday: 10am – 4pm  /  Friday & Saturday: 10am – 8pm


After visiting Q station, head to the Ferry Wharf. Take the ferry to Circular Quay and there change over to the Parramatta River Ferry (wharf 5). Depart the ferry at Cockatoo Island, which will take just under 1 hour.


Cockatoo Island operated as a convict penal establishment from 1839-69, primarily as a place of secondary punishment for convicts who had re-offended in the colonies. The island was off-limits to the public for more than one hundred years. The island is now UNESCO world-heritage-listed and reminded me out of scenes of the walking dead.

You can wander around here and explore the vacant buildings.

Sydney 6 days itinerary | Heritage-listed Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour is a must-see

Take the ferry back to Circular Quay and have a freshen up at your hotel.


End your evening by grabbing an ‘expensive but once in a lifetime dinner’ at the Sydney Opera House. There are different restaurants in the vicinity of the Opera House, most with different price tags:

  • Bennelong
  • Portside
  • Opera Kitchen
  • Opera Kitchen
  • Theatre Bar
    The lounge


The Opera House Bar is the place to have a drink whilst enjoying some of the cities most amazing views. Listen to live music and chill for the rest of your evening.

DAY 5 | Spot Wild Kangaroos and Koala’s 

If you are not from Australia and heading down under for the first time, then you need to feed a couple of koalas and kangaroos. So today is the day we meet with a couple of Australia’s incredible creatures.

If you are looking for a hands-on Australian wildlife experience then I advise you to go to Featherdale Wildlife Park in western Sydney. Pat a koala, hand-feed a kangaroo and meet all your favourite Australian animals in an outdoor bush setting. It’s amazing.

A great alternative is heading to Taronga Zoo, which more a standard zoo but with amazing views. Especially the Giraffes are living the good life! You can also visit The wildlife zoo at Darling Harbour.


From Sydney city, you can take the North Shore and Western line to Blacktown Station. From there hop on the bus from stand E located right outside the train station. Take bus 729 for 10 minutes, which will drop you off right in front of the gate. (if you are unsure ask the bus driver, they are often nice enough to let you know when you have arrived)


In this park, you can find a variety of Australian Wildlife. Why I find this is the best place to go is because you can hand-feed kangaroos (They might be wallabies, but I have no clue what the difference is, so I am calling the Kangaroos)

They have also Koala encounters, just like everyone else, I bee-lined towards Australia’s cuddliest animal (Although by law you are not allowed to actually cuddle them in NSW – I dunno ask the government) They were the first animal I wanted to see and touch when I first arrived in Australia!

Just to be warned: Their fur was shockingly soft. Pro tip (because I have petted 1 whole koala) – Don’t pat them on their face because they don’t like that. Just give them a back rub.

There is a small restaurant located on the premises so grab a bit to eat whilst you are there.

Made a friend at Featherdale Wildlife Park, Sydney


Not the most efficient day ever, but I want to show you the most of Sydney as possible. To hop on the train and head to Central Station. From there chance to the T2 train to Newtown.

Newtown in Sydney’s inner west is a unique neighbourhood in Sydney. With a thriving music scene, many amazing restaurants and lots of unique clothing shops making Newtown a vibrant inner-city neighbourhood. But the main reason for me to venture to this neck of the woods is because of its infamous graffiti scene. Newtown has a large number of excellent artworks to check out through a vast area.

Walk my 1-hour self-guided walking tour.

Memorial Park Graffiti Newtown
Sydney 6 days itinerary | Newtown in Sydney is a lovely neighbourhood to check out

Newtown Graffiti, A self guided mini tour


Newtown is filled with cool little coffee shops and restaurants. Make sure to stop at one of them to fill up on some delicious food.


Darling Harbour is probably the entertainment district in Sydney. It is filled with entertainment, bars, shops, and several clubs. It is also home to Madame Tussauds, Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wildlife, and the Australian National Maritime Museum.


A beautiful tranquil garden located in Darling Harbour.  I must say that this is a stop you should really make! The entrée is only $ 6,- and it is just lovely to wander around in for a bit. The garden is not massive, so it will only take you about 30 minutes. But it is definitely worth it.

Chinese Garden of Friendship in Darling Harbour, Sydney.


Just behind Darling Harbour lays China Town. It is reasonably quiet most nights, it blows up on Friday night. The street market is open, street food, vendors, entertainment, etc. Fun times, good food, nice shopping. Go have fun and enjoy a culture different from what yours may be.

Great restaurants to check out all nights of the week if you don’t want to go on Friday night. Thai, Chinese, Szechuan, etc.

If you are in the market for cheap souvenirs head to Paddy’s Market. Lots of typical Australia souvenirs like boomerangs, t-shirts, Kangaroo balls (yep, don’t ask) and much much more.

Wednesday 10:00am – 6:00pm
Thursday 10:00am – 6:00pm
Friday 10:00am – 6:00pm
Saturday 10:00am – 6:00pm
Sunday 10:00am – 6:00pm

DAY 6 | Jervis Bay National Park

On Day 6, hire another car and head to Jervis Bay National Park. The National Park is the perfect place for a quick getaway when you need to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney living. This stunning national park is located about a 3-hour drive from Sydney and offers not only the world’s whites beach but also whale watching and fishing opportunities and lots of Aboriginal heritage.


We opted to not go for the fastest route, but travel via the coastal road instead. This is a lovely way to start the trip in a relaxed way.

Our first stop was at Sublime Point Lookout. Sublime Point Lookout is about a 45-minute drive south of Sydney, on the way to Wollongong. Getting there is pretty easy as there’s a big sign on the Princes Highway indicating the turn-off which takes you to the lookout. Sealed bitumen roads all the way there so no worries about gravel and punctured tires.

Plenty of parking is available, as well as a cafe on site. You get stunning aerial views of the beautiful coastline beaches in the Illawarra from very high up. It makes for perfect photo opportunities and is perfect to have a quick coffee break.

We hopped back in the car and continued or way. Near Gerringong, we made another stop as the views here were simply breathtaking. Is was literally a picnic bench near the highway, so I can’t tell you where it was. But it was a lovely spot for us to just enjoy the scenery for a while.

The number one stop you have to see if Hyams beach, so head there first.


Hyams Beach is known as “The jewel of Jervis Bay”. The small and secluded village of Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay is renowned for its pristine, powdery white sand which is so fine it ‘squeaks’. It is even claimed to have the whitest sand in the world!

This beach was amazing. The sand is so soft and white the water so clear. It is something from a picture-perfect postcard.

There are a couple of restaurants nearby where you can grab a bit to eat.

Hyams Beach, Australia
Hyams Beach, Australia


Caves Beach is located a 20-minute drive from Hyams beach.

The walk into Caves Beach is a bit of a climb and takes about 10 minutes. You do have some amazing views, so well worth it. The beach is beautiful and pristine and the tidal caves there are spectacular. While we were walking along the beach, a pair of whales were playing just offshore, which was amazing.

The cave is quite shallow but makes for good photo ops.

If you want to explore the National Park a bit more then you can also head to:

  • Bherwerre Beach
  • Summercloud Bay Boat Ramp
  • Steamers Beach
  • Stony Creek
  • Cape St George Lighthouse
  • Murrays Beach
  • Hole in the wall
  • Iluka Beach
Jervis Bay National Park a must for a complete Sydney Travel Itinerary


Whenever you are done exploring you can head home. Along the way, you will see many restaurants where you can grab a bit to eat.

This marks the end of your 6 day trip in Sydney.

Best Places to Stay in Sydney

If you are travelling to Sydney for the first time, then I would suggest booking your accommodation in either Sydney CBD or Darling Harbour. These are the two prime locations within walking distance of the most popular tourist attractions like the Opera House, Tower Eye, The Rocks and the Royal Botanic Gardens. From here you can also easily travel to places like Bondi Beach and the Blue Mountains.

If you wish to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, then Surry Hills is also a great central location. If you are not bothered to travel a bit and want to be close to the beach, then Bondi Beach is the place to be.

  • Amora Hotel Jamison (Sydney CBD) Amazing luxury hotel located in the heart of Sydney. It offers stylish accommodation, along with an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and much more!

Safety in Sydney

I have been living in Sydney for about 8 years now, and I have found Sydney to be very safe and welcoming. Sydney has remained a popular destination for solo backpackers and couples for years. Because of its save imago. There are strict lockout laws at night, making the city feel safe at night as well.

The Sydney Opera House, amazing weather and some of the beach beaches, you will not be disappointed. It is definitely a MUST visit when you are in Australia.

    Very Interesting.

    Since we are 78 and 81 it may be more difficult to do a lot of walking.

    I assume that we can find tours.

    What is the average cost for the six day tour as oulined?

      Hello Sol,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Pre Covid there where many tours that you could do. I am not sure what it is like at the moment.I don’t know if they are still op and running and where they would go. It probably depends on when you are thinking of traveling and what restrictions are in place around that time.
      Costs really depends on what luxury you would like. It can be a budget trip if you take public transport and stay in cheap accommodation. You can also save a bit of money if you stay in suburbs just outside of the city centre and away from places like Bondi Beach etc.
      A vacation to Sydney for one week usually costs around AU$1,402 for one person. So, a trip to Sydney for two people costs around AU$2,804 for one week.

      kind regards,
