Go down to Circular Quay near the Opera House, and catch a ferry to Manly

where to begin is the issue, there is SO MUCH.
If you are staying in and around Sydney then here we go:

1. Ferry to Manly as Wocca suggests
2. Ferry to the Zoo - great views back to the city
3. Sydney Harbour Bridge climb - absolute must !
4. Pub crawl around the Rocks area
5. Lunch at Doyle's at Watson's Bay
6. Observation Deck the top of the Centre Point Tower in Sydney
7. Darling harbour - so many restaurants
8. Sailing on the harbour itself - you can do day sails, night is even better
9. Bondi beach - of course
10.Blue Mountains
11.Helicopter or seaplane flight over Sydney and the harbour

If you are going anywhere else send me a PM and I'll suggest what to see, as I have lived and worked in each state.

Live for the present, dream of the future, learn from the past
