If you're looking to get as much out of your Sydney experience as possible, why not get out of the city for a day and explore some nearby areas? Although Sydney is a big city with more than enough activities and attractions to keep any visitor or resident occupied, just a few short hours away you can find yourself in new Australian environments and enjoying new sites and experiences.
Here are some nearby attractions.
