Sydney Day Trips & Tours

Endless beaches, rugged national parks and vineyards that stretch away to tomorrow are calling your name, today!

You could easily fill your itinerary several times over with Sydney's inner-city attractions, but there's so much more to see beyond The Rocks and Circular Quay. Some of Sydney's most exciting destinations take a full day to discover. With pristine beaches, national parks and vineyard-covered hills just a short drive away, a day trip from Sydney should definitely be on the to-do list.

If the sun is shining, grab some sunscreen and an esky and make tracks to the beach. Spread out your towel on the golden sands of Cronulla Beach or take the scenic ferry trip to Manly, famous for holding the first world surfing championships. Further afield, the Central Coast offers more legendary surf breaks as well as lakes and national parks.

Why not pull on your hiking boots and head for the hills? The Blue Mountains are a must. It's where you can stop for a beer in Katoomba or drink in the views from Echo Point. In the Hunter Valley, raise your glass amid the vines of this region renowned for its award-winning wineries. Just south of Sydney, the harbour city of Newcastle has a laid-back charm that is sure to win you over.

Getting beyond Sydney's city limits is a no-brainer with regular ferry services, regional train networks and loads of charter tours.
