Sydney & Palm Cove in November

Jump to last reply

I will be travelling to Sydney for 6 nights followed by 4 nights in Palm Cove area. I would appreciate any suggestions you Fodorites might offer me.

Sydney:
Sydney Explorer Hop On/Off Bus
Harbour Bridge Climb, The Rocks & Circle Quay, Darling Harbour areas
Bondi-Coogie Beach Trail
Trip to Manly Beach

Possible Day trips:
Blue Mountain National Park and/or Hunter Valley Winery Tour

Would you recommend both day trips? If not which of the two would you recommend? Should we take a tour from Sydney or take the train followed by the Hop On/Off bus? Does anyone have recommendations of touring companies?

Palm Cove for 4 nights.
Any recommendations of boats out to the GBR? Snorkel or Dive? I have snorkeled frequently in the Caribbean but, never dove. The GBR might be the only place I would attempt to dive. Is 1 day enough to go out to the reef?
Any other recommendations in the area or day trips would be greatly appreciated.

Fodorites you have always been immeasurably helpful in planning my trips. I look forward to your responses
