While the iconic sights and sounds of Sydney are mesmerizing, heaps of fun (as the Aussies would say) await outside the city as well. Southern Australia offers vast wilderness, immaculate beaches, and world-class action sports all within an easy drive. Pick up a car rental in Sydney and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life (and tourists!).
You flight to Sydney Airport will land just 5 miles from downtown, and rental cars in Sydney will be at your fingertips. To enjoy a breath of fresh air, travel 80 miles west to the craggy, tree-covered Blue Mountains for some of Australia’s best scenery. Find the enormous sandstone pillars called the Three Sisters, or “bushwalk” (that’s Australian for “hike”) to Bridal Veil Falls. Looking for action instead? Live like a local adrenaline junkie with an easy day trip in your Sydney car rental. Dive with sharks at the Manly Beach Aquarium—or just take a surf lesson, if that’s more your speed. If you want to go up instead of down, Stanwell Tops, a world-renowned hang gliding location, is just 35 miles south. Try it yourself, or just watch the professionals! Twenty miles further south, calm your speeding heart at the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple in Wollongong. Catch a unique art exhibition, admire the grand architecture, take a meditation course, or enjoy a delicious (and cheap!) vegetarian lunch. On your way back to Sydney, stop off at the Sublime Point Lookout for majestic views of the coastline.
