I was there late spring and everything was blooming and just spectacular. They also had an exhibit of carnivorous plants in the Calyx that was really cool. Plan to spend a full day if you want to see it all.

The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
What makes Sydney one of the best cities in the world (18 Replies)
Here is a feedback on my recent trip to Sydney. My family of four, with 2 children visited Sydney for 8 days in late November 2010. I managed to see quite a bit of Sydney as there were sufficient days in my visit. I have given reviews to the hotel and attractions separately and this feedback is to provide information and insight into the places I went. Trip Advisor I really did not have to ask much questions to plan my trip. By reading existing information on the various websites...More

Thank you so much for such a terrific report! Pleased to hear you were able to plan the bulk of your trip by spending the time reading the information already available online. What parts did your children (ages?) enjoy the most? How did you find the food/eating out with children? (we get asked this a lot!) Thanks again :))

Day 8 I'm not sure about Bell's Line of road if not coming from the city. I do understand it is for fruit picking etc, but I would be more inclined to head down to Little Hartley for the "historic" aspect rather than Windsor or Richmond. It is a weekend so this will make the towns more enjoyable. If I had to pick one it would most like be Windsor. I would play it by ear based on the traffic and how everyone is feeling.

With 2 kids, you've set up a very good itinerary. Hard to improve. If you go to Mornington, drive via Beach Road, round Port Philip Bay. You can come back on Eastlink (freeway). Suggest you allow plenty of time at Sovereign Hill, as there's lots for the kids. When you go to Yarra Valley, have lunch at Innocent Bystander, on the main road in the town. St Kilda is a good location as a base. Lots of activity. If you need some other entertainment for the kids, Melbourne Zoo is big,...More
