Once you’ve explored Sydney, use the city as a jumping-off point to see nearby regions with lush wilderness and rich culture. From visiting native kangaroos to trekking through colorful rain forests, see below for your day trip options from Sydney.

Blue Mountains — 90 miles (145 km) away
Take in the natural beauty of the UNESCO-listed Blue Mountains National Park on a day trip from the city. Many tours combine visits to top outdoor spots such as the Three Sisters rock formation and Scenic World’s cableway and railway with stops at the mountain town of Leura and the Waradah Aboriginal Centre.

Hunter Valley —105 miles (170 km) away
With a reputation for fine wine and tasty foods, the Hunter Valley is a great choice for a relaxing day trip from Sydney. Discover some of the region’s best wineries and restaurants on a tastings tour, which can include a scenic helicopter flight or a visit to a native wildlife refuge.

Port Stephens –  115 miles (185 km) away
Set just over two hours from Sydney by car, Port Stephens offers the chance to immerse yourself in nature. Discover the beaches and rain forest on the scenic north coast, then check out Australian critters at a wildlife park, take a dolphin-watching cruise, or go four-wheeling or sandboarding at the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes.

Canberra – 178 miles (285 km) away
Delve into Australia’s cultural treasures on a visit to the nation’s capital, where you’ll find highlights such as the Australian War Memorial, the National Portrait Gallery, and Parliament House. Find great photo ops of the city as you approach from Mt Ainslie, and learn from your guide about the architects who designed the city in the early 1900s. A major plus? All tours from Sydney include roundtrip transportation, so there’s no need to worry about logistics.
