Booked the flights 4days before the impromptu getaway to Sydney, stayed at a lovely apartment in Erskineville.
Spit Bridge to Manly Scenic Walkway: Catch a bus from the city to Spit Bridge and catch a ferry from Manly back to Circular Quay. Completed the entire 10k Manly Scenic Walkway in approximately 3hrs.
Spent my second day at Bondi Beach. Not sure what all the fuzz is about, a good vibe perhaps.
Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk: Starting by Bondi Iceberg > Tamarama (Mackenzie's Point Beach), follow the coastal trail towards Bronte (Bronte Beach). Continue from Bronte, follow the cliff path to Clovelly Beach, nestled in the narrow bay between Brote and Gordons Bay. The walk to Gordons Bay features a very steep staircase that is challenging but rewards with its clifftop views.
Take a walk in the forest and smell the wild air. Completed a challenging magnificent walk through Jamison Valley.
Blue Mountains: A 2hr journey from Central Station. Take a train from Central station > Springwood Station. Catch Bus694 (operated by Blue Mountains Transit) at Springwood Station, Macquarie Road towards Burns Rd Loop, get off after 16stops.
Spent my last few days, travelling around the central city area - Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The art gallery of NSW, Queen Victoria Building, not forgetting a seafood lunch at Sydney Fish Market.
It's pretty convenient to get around in Sydney. Be sure to download "Opal Travel" before your trip to Sydney, it saves lives, at least for a direction idiot like me.
