A few tips from a Sydneysider:

  • If you want the classic Sydney shot, make your way down to Lady Macquarie's chair- you'll get a beautiful view back across the harbour with the Opera House and Bridge.
  • While you're there, take a wander in the Botanical Gardens, they are not to be missed.
  • Australia has some of the best coffee going- in Sydney, look for places that get beans from Campos or The Little Marionette, or just go direct to either roaster.
  • Sydney is full of Asian emigrants in the best possible way- cheap, delicious ethnic food is everywhere. Look for Vietnamese banh mi ("bun me") almost everywhere, chinese noodle and dumpling joints, little India on Cleveland Street and lots of really good Lebanese/turkish eateries in Surry Hills & Enmore.
  • Don't go to Darling Harbour, it's an overpriced tourist trap.
  • If you have a car and you're keen for some great photo opportunities, take the scenic route south to Woollongong, the Royal National Park is stunning.
