Sydney is sure to be one of the most priority in every traveler's bucket list.  The city which never sleeps and shows you to live, love and dream.  If you are lucky enough to be in Sydney for a considerable time, don't rush to the tourist attractions on Day 1 to tick off your checklist, rather take your time to sink in the real feeling of this city - stroll in the busy George Street and other streets, taste a cup of hot chocolate in of the cafes,  take a train to one the suburbs, listen to buskers at street corners, enjoy a 'grab and go' lunch, watch people at Central station in busy evening, enjoy drink at on the cafes in the Rocks and at the end get yourself lost in Sydney.  Sydney is one of the cities where you enjoy both the charm of a busy and commercial town in the CBD and bare country life in the outskirts. Public Transport in Sydney is well connected through buses and trains and beware of taking taxis (taxi charges go by seconds) The feel of random people greeting, savory food outlets, a blend of different nationalities and much more make your stay enigmatic and pleasant. 

Sydney Opera House is one of the most historic architectures around the world due to its shell like structure. Stroll around the Opera House for perfect clicks and for a great view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is recommended to take a guided tour if you are really a person of historic monuments and culture to know more about it architecture. Also, if possible try to attend a performance at the Opera House to treat yourself.
Darling Harbour is one of the iconic spots for both tourist and locals. It houses a number of attractions like Madam Tussauds, Sea Life Aquarium and National Maritime museum. With an array of wine and dine options with multi-culinary options housed along both the sides of the shore makes it an ideal place and busy place for hangouts and catch ups on weekends. If you are ready to spend more on dinning, try the cruise dining options for an exemplary experience. Grab a coffee and take a walk on the Prymont Bridge to catch a glimpse of whole of Darling Harbour.
The most popular stop to reach the Blue Mountains is the Katoomba village which is a 2 hour train ride from Central station. You wouldn't regret staying here for at least nights to enjoy enough of it, however if you are on a tight schedule you can take a day tour from Sydney which most of the tour operators offer. The main attractions of Blue Mountains are the Three Sisters, Scenic Cablecar, and the world's most steepest 'Train Ride' and Leura village. There are public transport buses available which stops at certain designated places and 'Hop on & Hop off' buses which stops at most of the places in Blue Mountains. You can relax on your Day 1 by visiting the Three Sisters, Echo point and Scenic Cable car and get yourself ready to do some serious bush walking on Day 2. There are a lot of bush walking trails available based on the level of difficulty and walking time. Grab a walking trail map at the Blue Mountains information centre and plan your trip accordingly. Be prepared to carry on enough snacks and water since there are no drinking water facilities available along the track into the wild and it could be too tiresome during summer. One of the recommended walks would be the trial to 'Ruined Castle' which is a 5 hour up and down walk with an hour break. Even though you are not rewarded to witness any great cast monument at the end of the walk (do not get carried by the name 'Ruined Castle'), the scenic views along the trial are breath-taking and worthwhile.
The other iconic attraction of Sydney is the Sydney Harbour Bridge with its massive arc-like structure which makes it the world's largest steel arc bridge. 'Bridge Climb' organizes different kinds of climb on the arc structure of the bridge based on different price packages. If you have a few hundred dollars to spend in your budget, it is a lifetime moment to view the whole of Sydney from top of the bridge. You can also walk on the bridge through the pedestrian path paved along one side of the bridge which also gives your great views of Opera House and Sydney harbour.
It is always a confusion to whether visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park or the Taronga Zoo as it completely depends on individual choice. The Taronga Zoo holds a considerable variety of species and animals from all over the world and you a need a day to spend your time here. Also you need to pay an extra fee to feed and click snaps of Kola bear and Kangaroo. Whereas, Featherdale Wildlife Park is a sanctuary only to native Australian animals like Wallaby, Kangaroo, Wombat, Kola bear etc. and the entry fee is comparatively cheaper than Taronga Zoo for what it offers. The main advantage of this park is that you don't need to pay extra to feed and take selfies with Kangaroo, Wallaby and Kola bear and also you can finish your visit in half a day.
It’s a dream come true for any cricket fan to walk on the lush grass turf of Sydney Cricket Ground, have a seat at the away and home team dressing room, walk along the walk of honour, visit the commentator and media room, get lost in the history of Sydney Cricket where history of records was created by the cricket giants. The daily guided tour of Stadium starts at 10 am from the Allianz Stadium Office. Do not miss to have a look at the commemorative plaque in remembrance of 'Philip Hughes'.
Bondi Beach is an exemplary gateway to the coastline of Sydney with busy surfers enjoying the adrenaline rush waves, beach goers sun tanning and locals having a picnic day out. Take a walk along the coastal line (coast walk with proper signboards) from Bondi to Coogee beach which is a 2 hour walk on the cliff and rock settlement along the coast. Enjoy your lunch at one of the food junctions in Coogee beach and take the bus back to downtown.
If you either want to load your bags with souvenirs and t-shirts or shop local candies, hit the Haymarket in Chinatown without second thoughts between 9 am to 5 pm which gives you a variety of choices to bring home keepsakes in remembrance of your visit to Sydney.
