Sydney for 3 days

Jump to last reply

I am going on a tour of Australia and New Zealand for one month. I will be in Sydney for 3 nights and 2 days during the tour. We will have the city tour, a tour of the Opera House,Paddington, Koala Park and a dinner cruise in the Harbor. At the end of the tour, we fly from Aukland to Sydney, then to LA for flight home. I have decided to extend my stay in Sydney for 3 more days before flying home. I have been doing some reading and research on what I want to do on those days. I would like some advice and suggestions. I will be on the tour with a friend but on my own in Sydney. I have already booked hotel accommodations. The First day will be arrival and checking into the hotel. This will take up my morning but will have afternoon to begin exploring.So have 2 1/2 days to see the city and surroundings.

1). I plan on taking a trip to the Blue Mountains on the 2nd day. Can you recommend a good tour operator to take this trip with? I do not want to go on my own. Due to walking issues, I do want to hike unless its a short one of about one mile. I am more interested in seeing the mountains and area around it. I just want a day tour-no overnights.

2) I am thinking of going to the Sydney Zoo. Is this worth the time and expense? During my tour, there is an optional tour to the Sydney Aquarium that also includes dinner. I am not sure if I will do it with the tour or on my own. It is pricey. It may be cheaper to do on my own. If I do not do during my time in Sydney, I may do this on one of the half days that I have open.

3) Several people that have traveled to Sydney suggested taking the ferry to Manly for the day to tour, sightsee and shop. My reading have suggested there are also organized tours to Manly. Do you know of any good ones to look into?

4) What suggestions would you make for 2 days of sightseeing in Sydney to really get the flavor of the city. I am open-as enjoy learning the culture of a new city and country. I want to see as much of the city as I can-not sure I want to travel too much out of the city other than to the Blue Mountains.
Thank you,
Cathy
