Oh boy, would I ever love too but I can't afford it right now. I already spent a crazy amount for my flight to Australia because it was such a spontaneous trip where I just had to book last minute and at one of the busiest times of the year too
Ooo and it looks like your gonna be heading over there soon too and very close to my hometown after that You'll love Canada!
hiyas. i go to ozzie land every yr have fmaily there and lived in sydney for a yr for uni.. all the places mentined about are great..
go to leichart as well for great food.

( im trying to be descirptive so other sydneyers know what im talking about) ahhh itll come back to me then ill let you know..
Wow! I was in Sydney last week - OK, didn't actually get off the plane, just sat on the tarmac after offloading a sick passenger....
Anyway, I grew up in Sydney and this is what I'd recommend:
Toronga Zoo and you can get in an enclosure with the Koalas and Kangaroos
Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Brunch down at Bondi Beach, followed by a swim!
Pitt Street Mall....and DFO (Direct Factory Outlets)
Tetsuya's if you're after a fabulous, special meal...yum
Snooze on the grass at Hyde Park
Lunch down at the Sydney Fish Markets
Bondi Junction and Chatswood has FABULOUS shopping
Not sure what the situation is there after all the bush-fires, but a day-trip to the Blue Mountains is really pretty.
Have a great trip! Australia is such a beautiful country!
Queen Victoria building
Chinatown for the yummiest YUMCHA (dimsum)
Watsons Bay ( pass by Vaucluse where the houses are worth $$$)
It's only an hours flight away. We have the best food! And real coffee!!!
Shopping in Sydney is great, but if you're looking for designer bargains... it's not cheaper than the States! Unless you like Australian designer clothes? Like Sass & Bide! It's much better priced here!
All the places the other girls have suggested are all great! Toronga zoo have a breadth taking view of Sydney Harbour.
Take a cruise in Sydney Harbour
Walk over the Sydney Harbour bridge (you can pay to climb over it, otherwise walking is free.)
Have a picnic at Sydney Botanic Gardens
Dine in Chinatown or have yum cha
Visit the Fish Markets (if you love seafood)
Go to the Glebe or Paddington markets on a Saturday
Hit the beaches! The popular ones are Bondi and Manly. (However there are beaches a gazillion times better outside of Sydney.)
Awww thanks guys for all your input! you guys are awesome! I wrote down everything u guys recommended and hopefully I get a chance to see them all. I know for a fact that I will love Sydney! I can't wait to see kangeroos and koalas
