My friend, Amber paid a visit from Shanghai in February. I was stoked about the visit save one issue: Amber only had one week in town. And she wanted to see everything (she’d been watching the Oprah shows on Australia). Add to that the hottest weather I’ve yet experienced in Oz, and I had my work cut out while planning a doable itinerary. It was quite a task to make sure that in the week that we had we were able to cover the "must-visits", as well as a few other offbeat areas.
By the grace of caffeine and Mother Nature’s turn to cooler temperatures mid-visit, we hit all the major marks in Sydney and then some. For anyone else expecting very short-term visitors, consider these options. Although 7 Days in Sydney is by no means enough, and even this itinerary might leave you gasping, but if you're short on time, you might as well make the most of it and pack in as much as possible!
