Visit the Sydney Opera House, a worldwide famous event venue. About 1.2 million people attend the opera house on a yearly basis. It has been the host of thousands of performances of many different types. This opera house is located alongside the iconic Sydney Harbour.

Blue Mountains

It is well worth it to visit the Blue Mountains. Make sure that you take your time and get to enjoy the scenery. If you plan on hiking up these mountains, you should plan to take more than a day.
