Sydney - Day Trips from Sydney (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Day Trips from Sydney chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sydney guide-book.

Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Sydney and they can each be completed in a day. Must-sees include the Blue Mountains and Royal National Park.

  • For more than a century, the Blue Mountains has lured Sydneysiders up from the sweltering plains with promises of cool-climate relief, naughty fireside weekends, astounding scenery and brilliant bushwalks.
  • A prime stretch of wilderness at the city’s doorstep, the Royal National Park encompasses secluded beaches, vertiginous cliffs, scrub, heath, rainforest, swamp wallabies, lyrebirds and raucous flocks of yellow-tailed black cockatoos.
  • It requires a little effort to reach them, but the Northern Beaches are some of Sydney’s very best suburbs. Especially if you’re a Home & Away fan.

Coverage includes: The Blue Mountains, Royal National Park and North-ern Beaches.
