Best Places around Sydney
Hi, I was in Sydney in September. There are lots of interesting places around Sydney. Before visiting, I did research via internet and found many interesting tours on web site http://www.sydneytourguide.com.au where you can find photos and video.
I recommed tourists to see:
1) Blue Mountains, Great Blue Mountains Canion, Wentworths Falls, Three sisters
2) Curringai Chase National Park
3) Royal National Park Great Blue Mountains Canion
Sydney Beaches (not Bondi beach)
sky-diving...its FUN..!!Taking a City Circle train, the Monorail or walking is the best way of seeing city attractions, while buses and ferries represent the best way to visit points and attractions around the harbour. The government-run Explorer Buses and Sydney Pass service represent an ideal and inexpensive way to see most of the main tourist points around the city and out to Bondi.
Go to Miller's Point for a...
Go to Miller's Point for a wonderful view of the city. [It's on the other end of the 'U' that forms Sydney's 'Inner Harbour'.] An added bonus are some very nice restaurants with open-air seating! As well as the old ships you see -- I think some of them provide harbor cruises for visitors.
Visit the Blue Mountains
Visit the Blue Mountains and get close to nature. Go bushwalking and breath in the fresh air. A great day trip, or if you have time you could stay at one of the B&Bs in the area. Discover the Three Sisters, Dining, Adventure, Galleries, Museums, Entertainment, History Highway Inns, Markets, Festivals, Churches, Bushwalks, Gardens and Camping. Take a to visit Leura village, which is nearby. Cafe Bon Ton in Leura serves great food and has a cosy atmosphere, it almost feels like you are dining in an old friend's home.

Try a Laminton
My friend Jackie told us we had to try a "Lamington" when in Australia. Lamingtons are little sponge cakes coated in chocolate and topped in shredded coconut. We found Lamingtons in every bakery since it is such a popular Australian treat. I thought they were good but Liz is no fan of coconut so she picked the flakes off her cake.
