We recommend you to book a hotel near the famous Harbour. The most convenient hotel is Pier One Sydney Harbour. This boutique styled hotel is right near the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Dine in at one of the amazing restaurants in the surrounding and after that, watch the incredible performance at the Opera House before heading back to your hotel.

The Hunter Valley is one of the most beautiful wine and food regions of Australia. You can hire a guide person who can take you to the right places and also to the famous restaurants to satisfy you wine and local food craving. You can also enjoy the relaxing massage in the Spa located in the valley. Other than wine and food, there is much more to do here.

There is also a Yengo National Park if you are interested in seeing some of the amazing rock painting by Aborigines. Spend the night there and head back next day after having breakfast.


Your visit to Sydney is incomplete without going to the Australia’s famous Bondi Beach. You can reach this spectacular beach by bus. Relax on the beach sand and enjoy the sunbath or swim in its clear waters. There are many restaurants in the surroundings if you feel hungry. There are also many shopping stores near the beach. You can buy some bargain stuff for yourself and your loved ones. After spending some time on the beach, you should visit the famous Blue Mountains located at about 2 hours drive from Sydney. There are many things to do in the Blue Mountains. You can take a ride in the cable car, skyway or railway and experience the most breathtaking views of the Jamison Valley and the popular landmarks including Mount Solitary, Three Sisters and Katoomba Falls. You should also walk through the rainforests that lead you to some of the most iconic sights of the Blue Mountains. Have a delicious dinner there and make your way back to Sydney. If you have enough time after coming back, then get into any famous night clubs and enjoy drinking and dancing all night. Alternatively, you can stay in Katoomba overnight and leave the next morning after breakfast.
