What would you do with 5 extra days in Sydney?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Australia for a couple of weeks in Feb and already planning time in Sydney with relatives as well as 4 days in Melbourne. We'll have an additional 5 days back in Sydney so we would like to see/experience more of the country than just visiting cities.

We're already planning on going to the Blue Mountains and are considering a few days in the Great Barrier Reef but not sure if we should go all that way for only 3 days. What other parts of the country are closer to Sydney and worth seeing for first-time visitors? Anywhere we can take a train or bus that would be worthwhile?

We love nature and outdoors and experiencing new adventures so we're open to any ideas.
