The Opera House to the Botanical Gardens is a short walk with lots of wonderful views. The Opera House is a must as are the Botanical Gardens. It's great to walk and mentally get everything in perspective.

This takes in some of the more historic parts of the city and is an excellent waterside walk in the greenery of the gardens. Great harbour views.

No matter how many times you see the opera house, it is always stunning. It is well worth a walk there and wander around. The views are amazing and you will get some great pictures here.

April in Sydney is Autumn : it's warm but not as hot as in the summer months. Very nice for walking about. Expect daytime temperatures around 20°C (68°F) cooling down at night to 15°C (58°F) .
